This special event examines the crucial connections that are needed to succeed in business and, well... in life. Everything relies on making the RIGHT connections: your startup team, business partnerships, clients, customers, and even your everyday relationships.
We'll look at the many ways to connect online and also IRL (in the real world). Learn how to make these crucial connections and where to find that next important contact that could make the difference between success and failure. If you think you know how to 'network' - think again. Plus learn how to better use LinkedIn, and even what should (and shouldn't) go on a CV.
This may be the most important event you'll attend all year.
Beer & food will be served, courtesy of Elance.
