What is Speed Networking?
Think musical chairs meets speed dating, where attendees get to meet and speak through this spunky and time sensitive activity.
Bring a handful or two of your CDs to swap with other musicians, VIPs, or anyone else you encounter. There will also be a table where you can put your CDs as well as collect those of other attendees.
Work It Brooklyn is an event-based networking organization devised as a forum to connect residents of this region working independently without the benefit of a network support system, and bringing them toether for an evening of conversation, partnership, and exchange of ideas-- all while having a whole lot of fun.
Women in Music is a dynamic group of music industry professionals working together to support, cultivate and recognize the talents of women in our field. Through educational seminars, panels, networking events, showcases, our annual Touchstone Awards, and other gala events, we provide camaraderie and tools for advancement to hundreds of members at all stages of their careers.
