Want to meet tons of new local people efficiently and in a low-pressure, fun setting?
Come to Speed Networking, where you can quickly and easily meet great people who are also looking for friends & to professionally network.
What is speed networking you ask? It is set up just like speed dating, except here you meet EVERYONE at the event, not just the opposite sex. You NEVER get that chance at traditional mixers. You will be seated at a table with one other person and get 3-5 minutes of one on one time with them. When I ring the bell you will rotate to the next table and meet your new friend! At the end of the night you will meet 25+ potential new friends, professional connections, or romantic encounters.
Who is speed networking for? EVERYONE! Expanding your social and professional circle is always a good thing. We get a lot of people new to Chicago, looking to professionally network, and people that want to try something new! It is a very unique event that only we offer.

How it works: Set up similar to speed dating except here you meet EVERYONE at the event, not just the opposite sex. You will have 5 minutes of one on one face time with each person attending the event. A great chance to introduce yourself, learn a little about the person, and then move on to the next person. At the after event mixer (right after the event) we will all hangout, have some drinks, and get to know one another better.
How many people normally attend? Typically 20-35
Parking: Paid parking on Clark and also right by the CTA
Dress code: You can dress anyway you feel comfortable but it is a Friday night. I say dress to impress, you never know who you will meet.
In my opinion this is one of the best ways to meet new people. You NEVER get the opportunity to meet everyone at typical mixers. It also can be intimidating sometimes to just go up to some random person and start making conversation. Everyone who attends is looking to do the same thing you are, expand their social scene. This event is efficient and always a blast. Try it once, if you don’t have a good time I will refund your ticket price.
Email or text me if you have any questions, looking forward to meeting you all!
