IWOC Meeting | Real Time Networking

  • 14 May 2019
  • 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM
  • Gratz Center (Room 4F), 126 E. Chestnut Street, Chicago


FREE admission for IWOC members
Registration is closed

Successfully “working a room” can land you projects and profits in a way connecting on social media alone cannot. May meeting attendees will learn how and where to do just that: get more business through personal connections.

Join IWOC's own Manuel Galvan, president of Vantage Point Marketing and networking expert, as he shows us smarter ways to network  face-to-face -- strategies they don’t teach in school about making contacts, meeting new people and having fun. You'll learn to network in "real time" and pick up in person likes and and strategic follow ups along the way. Manuel will inform us on what networking events to show up for, which to skip, conversation tips, how to gracefully exit a conversation and the best follow-up techniques. By the end of the hour, you won’t just be able to work the room. You’ll own it.

Real Time Networking, with snacks and beverages, begins at 5:00 p.m., followed by the program at 6:00 p.m.

The meeting is FREE for IWOC members. Non-members pay $10 with online preregistration/payment or $15 at the door.

All attendees are welcome to join us for a buy-your-own dinner at a nearby restaurant after the meeting.
