Open virtual networking (third Tuesday of selected months) from 12:00 - 12:45 p.m.
We've realized one of the greatest differences between our in-person events and our online Zoom webinars is the ability to openly network with others in the business community. While we're unable to get together in-person at this time, we still want to connect people and have open discussions on the upcoming IFOB program topics or themes from our surveys of what people are interested in. We hope this allows new business connections and relationships to bloom!
The idea behind the “Tuesday Talks” is solely around networking and based on Catherine’s conversations with members. We have done some breakouts with networking in our panel programs, however, we find people are Zoomed out, if it goes too long.
Each session will start out with a general topic that will be discussed as a group. The topic will be around what program we just finished or will “tee” up for our next upcoming program or we'll talk about themes from our surveys.
TOPIC: The masks are off! How are the workplaces and businesses you frequent handling the return to normalcy?
We hope by having an open dialogue on a timely topic, it will help recruit people to those upcoming events, spur conversations and allow people to network and learn about each other's company and themselves.
