Join us on December 8 at O’Finns Irish Temper in downtown Oakville as we celebrate the end of another great Silicon Halton year. We hope you’ve found value and learned new ideas from all the meetups, peer2peer groups, special events, and linkedin discussions. It’s time to come out and have some fun and meet a whole bunch of people. We’re going to start this meetup a little earlier at 6:30 pm – as we’d like to encourage you to come try the great dinner menu at O’Finn’s.

Silicon Halton’s Famous Speed Networking
We’re running the ever popular Speed Networking again, where everyone has a few minutes to exchange short introductions and make new connections, then rotate to the next introduction. As you’ll probably be attending other holiday events this year – this will be a great chance to practice your cocktail party pitch.

How Speed Networking Works

3 minutes per conversation

  1. First person gets 1 minute to speak about themselves or their company
  2. Second person gets 1 minute to speak about themselves or their company
  3. Then 1 minute to ask questions or exchange business cards – so bring lots
  4. Smile and move on to the next person

    What Can You Say In 1 Minute?

    A lot actually if you practice a few times before the meetup. You can say:
  5. Hello
  6. Your name, your role, and your company name
  7. What you help your clients / people achieve (one sentence)
  8. How you do it (one sentence )
  9. Your website (where people can go for more info)

If after the introduction you feel there is value in connecting, absolutely send the other person an email / linkedin request the following day.
