Event description

Description

What if the person who could further your career was already looking for you?
What if a room full of people knew exactly the insight you sought?
What if your knowledge could be someone else’s Eureka moment?

Welcome to Magnet. Where you can let your net...work.


Some of the feedback from previous Magnet events:

"Genius."
"Amazing!"
"Brilliantly devised. 10/10."
"Where has this been my whole life?"
"Best Networking Event I've ever been to!"


Here's how it works. You tell us something you need help with (aka "your ask"), for example:

    I need a literary agent.
    I need to chat with someone who has started a technology incubator.
    I need to connect with someone at Good Magazine.
    I need to hire a web developer capable of setting up a digital sales platform.
    Does anyone have any contacts in Prague?
    Does anyone know a good personal trainer?
    Does anyone know how I can play a round at Augusta National Golf Club?

    It can be anything!


    Once at the event, you write this question on a sheet of paper that has a number associated with it: (1, 2, 3, etc). You’ll have a name tag with the number of your question.

    Everyone’s task will be to look at the board of opportunities and select at least 3 people you’d like to connect with, in whatever capacity. You write your number on a Post-It note and slap it on their sheet.


    In the end, your sheet will look something like:


    Leading to moments like these:

    The idea is doing more than just getting to know each other, but seeing how we can help and support each other. It's not who you know, it's who knows what you want.

    Our ability to simultaneously pursue our own goals while being mindful and supportive of other people’s goals is fundamental to human life - so fundamental, in fact that we have trouble turning it off. - Clay Shirky

    Magnet. It's actionable networking for the 21st Century.

    Magnetically Yours,

    Bassam Tarazi, Founder
