Networking for Fun and Profit
Let`s face it, giving speeches in public, writing articles, or doing anything else out of one`s comfort zone, including networking, is not easy, comfortable and/or fun for many people. Just like anything else, knowledge is power, and practice makes perfect. Once you learn, practice and eventually master a few basic techniques, you will realize networking can be fun and even very profitable!

There is a certain `art and science` to networking. If you are a business owner or a salesperson, it is imperative to learn how to network effectively; your financial success may depend on it! You don`t have to be a natural-born extrovert or even an expert in your field to be able to approach a stranger and make a connection!

We could learn much from children. Some children tend to be fearless; they simply do not know any better. They usually do not have any inhibitions or insecurities that prevent them from doing or saying things. As we get older, experiences, assumptions, and fears creep in and prevent us from accomplishing our goals.

Let`s get back to the basics (clean slate) for a moment, and simply forget all you have learned or thought you knew about networking. Humans are social creatures by nature. At our workshop, you will practice how to socialize and network not only to grow our businesses, but to meet more people effectively and successfully!

Consider the following quotes (Please share this and pay it forward!):

  • Networking = Hospitality = Success
  • Best business is personal business. Give and you shall receive.
  • Perception is reality. You only have one chance to make a first impression.
  • The key to success is not what you know, or who you know, it`s who knows you!
  • A little courtesy goes a long way. Golden Rule - Treat others like you would like to be treated.
  • The main purpose of any business is to grow.
    If your business or organization is not growing, it it NOT a business,
    it is a hobby!

I can`t express enough how valuable that workshop was. I realized i had been doing many of the good things but also many of the bad. Now that I am aware of what needs changing I am on mission to correct it all before my next event... - Miguel Chapeton, Palo Alto Guide, Bonobos.com

You are a wonderful host and I definitely learned a lot from the workshop. I totally agree with your philosophy when it comes to networking because most of the time a lot of people (which including myself and that’s why I was at the workshop) forgot about the fact that “it’s not about them, it’s about the others”. I am definitely taking this approach when I meet new people moving forward because I know it will help me in the long run. Thanks for hosting all these wonderful events. I am looking forward to seeing you at future events to expand my businesses and build meaningful relationships with new people as well.
- Kenny Lau, Premier Banker, East West Bank

Just wanted to follow-up and thank you for a productive and enjoyable evening. Chris and I both appreciated your philosophy, strategy, and tactics about networking. Your tips on what to say were very helpful to me. I wish you continued success in your business community building here in the Bay Area.
- Julia Arellano Sullivan, ProsperoLeadership.com

Cesar, I know you`re a busy guy but I just wanted to thank you for the energetic workshop you gave tonight. I learned about tips for working an event and tips for running an event.

- Robert Sharrock, Notary Signing Agent

About Silicon Valley Athletic Club
www.siliconvalleyathleticclub.com  (formerly known as San Jose Athletic Club) The Athletic Facility is a Historic Treasure - The magnificent Greco - Roman-style historical landmark building known as "San Jose Athletic Club" has a colorful history, and was almost demolished to make way for "progress" in the late 1970`s. Saved by some bold and Forward-thinking local leadership, it has survived as one of San Jose`s truly great monuments. Tours will be available during the event.


corinthian room san jose athletic club corinthian room
Built by the Freemasons in 1927 as San Jose`s Masonic lodge, it was a masterpiece of design and a centerpiece of the then -Tony St. James Park neighborhood. Along with the old downtown post office, the later-demolished Gothic city hall, the historic courthouse trinity Episcopal Church, and other historic structures that predated it, it was a major attraction for our out-of- town visitors, writers and photographers describing the best attributes of San Jose. By 1977, having been damaged by several earthquakes and needing deferred repairs, it was focused by the city to close until repairs could be effected. When the masons obtained cost estimates, they found the huge repair costs prohibitive ( about $ 500,000 - imagine that! ) A decision was made to build a new temple in a different location, and to sell the existing one to be demolished and replaced by a modern office building.

Fortunately , some alert members of the San Jose chamber of commerce were able to quickly lobby the city and federal governments to designate the building as a historic landmark, thus preventing it’s demolition-at least until it could be proven that no beneficial be found for it. For the next three years, a chamber for committee studied various ideas from private and public developers and agencies. Finally, in 1980, the owners of the venerable Oakland Athletic Club, a family-owned enterprise with a great history over two generations, proposed to convert the building to a first rate athletic club and social facility, retraining it’s historic façade and the traditional qualities of it’s remarkable interior – a challenging undertaking.


After two years of design and planning discussions, architectural plans and approvals, and extensive renovation and construction, the building was finally given a re-birth as the San Jose Athletic Club, which opened in November of 1981. Then considered the Premier Club of it’s type in all of silicon valley, it’s quickly attracted a premium membership of downtown business and professional people, and became the most popular venue for upscale social events and weddings in downtown San Jose.
