Speed dating for service providers event recap

Events

Networking is one of the realities of business.

It’s all about meeting new people and finding opportunities to provide service and be of value. Over time, conversations can lead to meaningful relationships that develop as you get to know each other better. If only there was a way to fast track it…

Oh wait, there is, and did we ever have a good time doing it!

On Monday, June 10, Incrementa gathered nearly 30 of the Lower Mainland’s finest service providers for an evening of networking… speed dating style.

People who had participated in the past jumped at the opportunity to take part in this counter-intuitive approach to building their network. Instead of focusing on longer conversations attendees had to capture who they are and what they do within 2.5 minutes, then allow the person across from them to do the same. After 5 minutes, the timer went off and bodies shuffled to the next seat.

Everyone was in the same boat, with the same time limit looking for the same outcome: to make a meaningful business connection and follow-up for more in-depth conversation and/or potential collaboration.

Sure enough, attendees enjoyed the atmosphere and laid-back approach to meeting other professionals. Plus, by their final pitch, they’d nailed articulating who they are and what their service offering is.

The feedback was excellent and the interest continues to grow.
