Learn all about Speed Networking Atlanta!!

What is Speed Networking?

Speed networking Atlanta is a structured event that is casually facilitated to allow participants to engage in a series of brief exchanges with every guest.

It was created to network specifically with bloggers, podcasters, and youtubers so that everyone is there for the same basic reason.

This event is designed to give you the opportunity to meet with everyone in the room. This eliminates the difficulty of figuring out who to speak with and how to approach them.

The Purpose of Speed Networking Atlanta

The purpose of Speed Networking is for every participant to create a network and gain resources to strategically to build your brand. We will connect you with others in your industry which makes this event unique.

It would be a waste of time to connect with another professional that has no common business interest. Our goal is for every encounter to be beneficial and productive. 

How Speed Networking Works

Each event will allow you to connect one-on-one or in a group setting of 4-5 people during a short period of time. You will be given 5-15 minutes per encounter depending on the size of the group. 

Once your time is up, you will switch to another guest or group and be given the same amount of time to connect, share resources, and get to know each other. At the end of the event, you will have met with everyone in attendance.
