Build your list of contacts with this fast, fun way to meet other professionals in Workplace Learning & Performance! Great for sharing trends and finding new opportunities. You'll have dedicated, one-on-one time to share areas of expertise and discuss opportunities for collaboration. Appetizers and 1 drink (beer, wine, or well cocktail) will be provided.

Our Speed Networking events continue to be enormously popular, so we’re doing it again! Here’s how it works -- After check-in, we’ll review the format and provide you with tips on networking in general and speed networking in particular.

With all participants seated in pairs, the Speed Networking sessions will commence. During each fast-paced, 8-minute rotation, participants will be able to network face-to-face before moving on to meet someone new. After 7 or 8 rotations, we open the floor for unstructured networking, where you can continue meeting new people or follow-up with those you just met.

With this proven format, participants in Speed Networking will meet more people, make more contacts, and generate more business ideas in one short evening than they ever thought was possible at a networking event!

A modest spread of appetizers will be provided, and each participant will receive 1 free drink. A cash bar is available thereafter.

Bill Bankhead is the former VP for Professional Development for the ASTD Golden Gate chapter. He created the Speed Networking events for the chapter and has successfully facilitated them throughout the Bay Area. He has extensive experience as a performance improvement coach for the Academy of Art University
