Coffee Connections - Networking Event

Thursday, October 15 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am • Organized By Mid-America LGBT Chamber of Commerce


Pour a good cup of coffee and settle in at your desk or kitchen table for a good time connecting with new and old friends discussing interesting topics.In addition to everyone getting a short opportunity to share the latest happenings in their business, we are going to discuss something many of us are wrestling with:How do you meet people when you don't know anyone at an event? ·    How do you start a conversation and where do you take it after you start it?·    Do you meet and recruit another newbie to be your wing person?    Where are the best places in the room to meet people?    How do you enter an ongoing conversation or meet a group of people on your own?    Do you follow up after meeting someone or let it slide until your next meeting. We often learn best from our peers so we want you to share what your challenges and best practices are around these questions.
