Where: Chamber Office
90 E. Wilson Bridge Road, Suite 100, Worthington, Oh 43805
What: QuickConnect
When: 9:45 AM – 11:30 AM
The QuickConnect session is structured so that each participant will make one-on-one contact with 10 others. Participants face each other and have 90 seconds to discuss their company’s products or services. Following each contact, participants indicate the next steps, including talking further about doing business; not a fit; and offering a referral.

Prior to the session, participants are provided a business profile/feedback form to complete.
Please bring 11 copies to the session.

Please note: You should plan to attend QuickConnect ONLY if you have received confirmation of your attendance and a copy of the questionnaire to complete, or a notice that your business category is full and you will scheduled at another date.

Considerable care is taken to match QuickConnect participants with other Chamber connections. Therefore, we are unable to accommodate walk-ins or unregistered attendees for this session. Our exercise is affordable and targeted, based on information you provide us about your ideal customers and other chamber members you’d like to meet.

To make the session as meaningful as possible to participants, the number of businesses from a single business category (banks, insurance, financial services, etc.) will be limited to two businesses. In addition, members who have not previously participated in QuickConnect are given preference over those from the same business category who have attended a recent session. This procedure expands interest in QuickConnect and helps all participants receive the maximum benefit from the exercise.
