Business Connections Meeting — Quarterly Networking Exercise

March 8, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am


Once each quarter, the OPBC has a special meeting with a different format. This quarter we will be breaking into small groups and participating in some networking exercises. Non-members are always welcome to attend our meetings as guests. However, if you have NEVER attended one of our meetings in the past, we suggest that you wait until 3/22 to join us. We will resume the standard meeting format on that date and as a guest, we feel you will get more out of the meetings. However, if you do wish to attend the 3/8/18 meeting, you are more than welcome.

Eric Adams shared a format that looks great for our upcoming meeting. I would like to use this as our template on Thursday, March 8th:

  • We will collect a business card from each person at the meeting.                                                  (5 minutes)
  • There will be a random drawing of business cards divided into 5 Groups.                                     (5 minutes)
  • Each table is going to work with the same generic business questions for structure:                      
  1. Describe your perfect customer or your ideal prospect.                                                          (10 minutes)
  2. What techniques have you used to approach or find this person?                                         (10 minutes)
  3. Of those techniques, what seemed to work and what didn’t work for you?                           (10 minutes)
  4. An overview & discussion of what was shared & learned will be shared.                              (15 minutes)

This event should be viewed more for education, not necessarily about referrals.

Educational Moment: Paul L. Schaefer, SHA Solutions
