February Networking Luncheon

The February Networking Luncheon was amazing!

Our survey showed attendees would love more time to network and socialize AND hear speakers without feeling rushed, so we had our first lengthened, 90-minute luncheon this month!

There was chittering and there was chattering while we registered and then a quick ice-breaker/speed networking activity. We switched nametags and you had to locate the person to whom your nametag belonged to and ask each other questions. It was fun to watch the buzz of conversation in the room.

Staying right on track, we had a delicious pasta meal from Tailgaters as we listened to updates from the chamber, schools, city and county.

We proudly introduced our featured business of the month: Neighborhood National Bank. Eric, Joe and Peggy gave us information about their role at the bank, the services they provide and shared their pride in their work. You can read more of their story in THIS blog post.

As our caterer of the month, Kathy, highlighted Tailgaters as being the place to go for great food and live music & entertainment.

Sami Peluso of All Things Social was our featured speaker and provided an excellent presentation on how to take your social media game to the next level and how to utilize your DM’s or direct messages to make connections with potential clients and customers.

Lastly, it is always interesting to hear what our #businessfamily is up to – we reserve 1 minute to the first 5 people to sign up and give us an update, a humble brag, promote an event/sale or just tell us about their business.

Then, we get to giveaway great door prizes to our luncheon guests given to us by our members and attendees.

We hope you join us next month where lunch is better when it’s shared with like-minded professionals and making connections!
