The speed networking event last Thursday was quite a success. Due to gathering restrictions, it has been difficult to get together for our socializing and networking events. At the event there were over 40 local business representatives that participated in a zoom virtual meetup. I met with 16 people and felt that it was definitely a success, especially when it is so difficult to get out and meet people in the current environment. I have quite a few people to follow up with, which is great considering I would have been happy even if it was just one.
Thank you Conifer and Evergreen Chambers for putting this together, and for all the participants that attended to make this such a fun event.
