NY Connect and Learn gathering February 7th

January 26, 2012 by  

Business owners in Flushing can look forward to the New York Connect and Learn event taking place February 7th, 2012 at 6:45 pm.

This well established networking group is holding what’s being called a “Power Pitching Event”. Taken from the site, organizers are encouraging people to:

“Come and join us in this exciting pitching event where you will have full 45 seconds to showcase your business! Tell everyone how you stand out and how all others can refer business to you. This is a perfect way to market yourself and develop a targeted network.

In addition to giving a pitch, you will also get to work on your pitch by getting tips from Dr. Kool and then brainstorming with other business owners who will work with you to make your message shine!”

With a membership of more than 2,300, it would seem that New York Connect and Learn holds a certain appeal to local and nearby professionals.

What separates these events from other meet-ups is the fact that the group doesn’t tell people to bring business card printing and then leave them to their devices. As is par for the course with New York Connect and Learn, this meet-up will include a quick presentation on the fundamentals of making a pitch.

As of now, entrance fees are being priced at $15.00 prepaid and $20.00 at the door. Since the site claims that there’s only room for 55 people, anyone who wishes to be there will have to sign up soon.
