When food is involved, you’ll generally have a 3 course meal — you sit at a different assigned table for each course and are then given a 3 minute opportunity to introduce yourself to your table and describe your services.
It’s fast moving. And believe me, if you didn’t have your elevator speech ready for the occasion, you’ll certainly have it down pat by time the meeting is over!
We were invited to the McHenry Area Chamber of Commerce Scramble held on April 23, 2010 and mingled with nearly 200 different businesses. It was such an enriching experience to meet with such a diverse number of people and have the opportunity of developing new business relationships!
One of the key messages given during the day was not to use this meeting as a way to push your business off to others… but to look for businesses you can genuinly HELP. Why? Because the returns back to you will be three fold.
So let me ask you this …. how can WE get to know more about YOUR business? How can WE help you to succeed?
