With the start of the new year, you may be setting new goals for yourself and for your business. One tool you might consider is growing your network of contacts and connections in the community. Maybe you are looking to hire some new people to help your business grow or you’re looking for a new opportunity. How can you start expanding your group of close contacts? Networking events allow you to meet new people and talk about what you need and what you have to offer in the right environment.
“In a world where who you know is more important than what you know, networking should be the backbone of any business and professional,” says Nosh & Network Chair, Adam Kroll.
The Boulder JCC Nosh & Network group was started to support local businesses, entrepreneurs, and everyone looking to expand their connections. Nosh (means eat or snack in Yiddish) & Network is open to everyone, you don’t have to identify as Jewish. During the COVID lockdown, the group moved the networking events online and Virtual Speed Networking continues on a monthly basis into 2023. The program is free and is held monthly on the second Tuesday of each month.
Bring a 30-second introduction and the intention of making new connections and expanding your network. Speed Networking is a fast-paced, fun way to make initial contacts. Talk for a minute, listen for a minute, exchange information…and then move to the next person. The group also gathers in person a couple of times a year for in-person networking and socializing.
Registration is required once each year here. The next virtual speed networking is Tuesday, January 10 from 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm.
