W&M Small Business & Entrepreneurs Online Networking Hour

Time: Friday, January 26 | 12:00 - 1:00 PM EST
Location: Online!
Contact:

Michael Steelman, Alumni Career Networks & Professional Networks

Connect with fellow members of the W&M Tribe from all over the world to share your experiences, exchange contact information & build your professional network!

It's free, it's for only an hour and it's fun!

How it Works:

Online networking enables you to speed-network no matter where you are in the world. You can sign in from your home, office, local library, smartphone or tablet. The chats are text-based and timed, allowing you to make connections, exchange contact information, and end the hour with several new connections you didn't have before.  A transcript of your conversations will be saved for you to access after each event, so you can look back at your chat history, review your notes, gather contact information and follow up!

While registering for the event, you will be asked to answer a few questions, including:

  • Industry interests and current small business issues of interest.
  • What types of experiences, skills, expertise, or connections can you share?
  • What types of connections, information or resources are you hoping to gain from this event?

When you enter the live event, you will be randomly paired for several 8-minute text-based chats that will allow you to make a connection, exchange contact information and build your W&M network.  After the event, be sure to add your new contacts to your network by adding them to your LinkedIn connections or following up via email.

We look forward to having you join us for this unique opportunity to connect with the Tribe around the world.
