Speed Networking

Get Connected - Get Talking - Get Networking

Speak face to face with business representatives in a structured, efficient and fast-paced setting.

Join friends from the Jackson Chamber, neighboring chambers of commerce and local networking groups for Speed Networking to help your businesses grow and build relationships with other businesses.

Networking is just that...working! Pick up a handful of business cards and finish your workday with us. Speed Networking is a structured, efficient and fast-paced event where participants have the opportunity to speak face-to-face with 20-25 other business representatives, sitting at tables in groups of four or five, three and a half minutes at a time.  It is good for experienced and nervous networkers alike and we guarantee that you will meet more people that you typically do during the same amount of time in an unstructured setting. 

“Those who make the effort to come are serious about creating preliminary connections with buyers and sellers plus the quality of leads is higher.” said Angela Machnik of the Jackson County Chamber of Commerce.

Each participant is allowed to bring one (1) marketing piece to use a prop when talking and then can place the extras on the marketing materials table. 

If you plan to attend Speed Networking, you MUST RSVP and plan on staying the entire time. The program will begin promptly at 3:00 pm. PLEASE ARRIVE BEFORE THE PROGRAM BEGINS. Late arrivals may not be able to participate.

ONLY 1 REPRESENTATIVE FROM YOUR COMPANY MAY ATTEND! Please limit your attendance to no more than 2 Speed Networking events a year. This will allow us to create variety within each Speed Networking event so that you are not meeting the same members at each event.
