The Chamber along with Theriault Financial Inc. hosted a
Speed Networking luncheon on Monday, October 21 to celebrate small business week. 36 people
shared a light lunch and conversation to start and then the games began.

Small tables set for two were lined up and everyone was
called to take a seat.  Half of the attendees
remained seated at all times, while the others moved when the whistle
blew.  When referee Barbi Holland blew
her whistle, attendees had 4 minutes to both do their “sales pitch” and pass
out business cards before time was up and they had to move on to the next person
. Play continued this way until all attendees made it back to their starting

The room was a hum of excitement, connection making and
relationship building. The only disappointment of the day was when the ref told
everyone that the game was over!

Speed Networking was a hit and left members wanting more. You
will be sure to see this event added to the Chamber’s event lineup again soon.

Did You Miss Out? Join us and Theriault Financial Inc. on
Wednesday, October 23rd for our Restaurant Hop Networking Reception!
Attendees will be split into two random groups – half to start the evening at
the Waterfront Warehouse and the others to start at the Grill @ CUT.  Both restaurants will be showcasing fabulous
menu items and complimentary drinks! An hour later, the groups will then “Hop”
to the next restaurant to make connections and enjoy even more great food – all
in celebration of Small Business Week.
