Who: Columbus – Network After Work – RSVP
Where: Industrious Columbus
629 N. High Street, 4th Floor, Columbus, OH 43215
What: Pro Speed Networking – Launch Event
Pro Speed Networking After Work improves on the raw efficiency of speed networking. Each attendee indicates what industries they are most interested in connecting with when
registering. Throughout the evening they are then seated at a stream of tables of 4 stacked with attendees from those industries. This fusion of speed networking and roundtable discussions result in meeting three times as many potential contacts while having to move around and repeat introductions significantly less often. The group discussion dynamic this creates also helps attendees, including introverts, break the ice more easily.

The evening concludes with an open networking mixer where everyone mingles together.
This provides a great opportunity to circle back with contacts from earlier in the evening or forge new ones not previously encountered at the tables.

Registration for this next evolution in networking will open at 6:00pm and the event will begin at 6:30pm SHARP. Please allow yourself enough time to check-in and get settled into the event
When: 6:00 PM – 8:30 PM
