Event Details

Networking

Welcome to Networking for Entrepreneurs and Freelancers in Toronto!


This quarter's theme is Social Media: effective for business?


Join us for a lively panel discussion on social media followed by networking.

 

Important disclaimer: If your intention is to recruit people for multi-level or network marketing businesses, to sell financial, legal, telecommunications or other products from large corporations, to conduct market research surveys, or to solicit for a job, please do not register. The organizers reserve rights of admission and we will ask you to leave if found soliciting our attendees with these intentions. Thank you.

 

Networking

Purpose: We host this quarterly event to facilitate successful business connections between entrepreneurs and freelance professionals in Toronto. Our intention is to create an atmosphere of support and learning from one other. All of our attendees are expected to contribute and participate. No "flies on the wall" allowed!


Background: We have held nine events since November 2009 that have attracted individuals from a diversity of industries and varying levels of experience.

 

Theme: This quarter's theme is Social Media: effective for business?

 

How important is it for entrepreneurs and freelance professionals to be active on social media? Should you blog? Tweet? Be active on Facebook? LinkedIn? Foursquare? How does social media translate in to revenue? We will facilitate a short, lively panel discussion on social media.


Panelists:

Promod photoPromod Sharma harnesses social media to build trust. He blogs, podcasts, tweets and uses LinkedIn (but not Facebook). In 2011, he was interviewed (Toronto Star, Globe & Mail) and nominated for a Business Excellence Award for best new startup from the Toronto Board of Trade. You'll find more at promodsharma.com.

At ThatChannel, Hugh hosts the Liquid Lunch program every weekday from noon through 2pm, and has interviewed hundreds of entrepreneurs, artists, authors, and community leaders.


Our theme coincides with Social Media Week events being held in Toronto and globally from February 13-17.


Invite List: To provide you with a high-quality experience, the invite list is controlled to ensure folks are either entrepreneurs or freelance professionals.
