Powerful Women of the Gulf Coast is bringing true structured and effective speed networking to Pensacola for the first time! Speed Networking takes the traditional value of face-to-face networking and combines it with advanced matching software to create a highly targeted networking event. After you register for this event, you will fill out a short survey that details the types of people you want to meet. The software will then take those survey responses and use an advanced algorithm to pair registrants together based on mutual interests. Then, when you arrive at the event, you will receive a customized schedule of meetings, complete with contact information and starter questions to help kick off the conversations. During the event, you will meet with your matched connections in a quick and fun format!
This type of networking takes the randomization out of open networking. It brings the right people together in an intentional way that makes networking much more worthwhile for all attendees by allowing them to connect with like-minded professionals in a strategic, structured, effective and fun way. Structured networking produces THREE TIMES the number of valuable connections than traditional networking. There has not been an event like this in the Panhandle until now!
This event is open to women and men in the business. Open networking and light lunch will start at 11:30 and the structured networking to start shortly thereafter. Vendor tables will be set up for our 6th Annual Pursue Your Passion conference and will be open for speed networking attendees to visit both before and after the speed networking event.
