No atmospheric pressure here! We network and socialize over sandwiches, spreads or pizza, catch up with new and old friends and introduce ourselves to first-time or frequent guests. Then we settle in for the night’s program and its follow-up Q&A.
Our programs always focus on running a creative business more successfully, with topics that address issues like fees, taxes, law, marketing, selling, interpersonal skills, business organization, technology and more. All to help you work smarter, faster, more efficiently and more profitably. So whether you’re just starting out or you’ve been at this for a while, you get no-fluff information tailored to your needs.
So join us for a meeting. Bring your questions. Hear that hot tip or horror story. And of course, share your own!
CELEBRATE THE SEASON & DISCOVER HIDDEN TALENTS AMONG US! Get ready for an exciting evening of great holiday food and a special way to network, reconnect and make amazing new connections. Expand your value to your clients by strengthening your professional network and referral power!
So, what is Out-of-the-Box Bingo? Suffice to say this version of Bingo won’t have you coloring numbers at long tables. Instead, you’ll meet other FF members or guests to find out special skills, experiences and talents in a fast, fun-filled game. We’ll even identify a few winners at the end! But most importantly, you’ll unearth unique skill sets and adventures that you never knew others in the
Have we mentioned wonderful holiday fare? We’re pulling out all the stops! Expect a more festive than usual buffet spread (well in advance of any pesky New Year’s resolutions!).
Take advantages of opportunities AFTER this event! We’ll bet you’ll discover many talented folks you can partner with after this special December meeting. Maybe a new writer, videographer or designer — who can help make you a hero in the eyes of your clients. Or, perhaps you simply found someone with good chemistry that you can share ideas with or seek mentoring from in the future.
We like this piece of advice from Fast Company: “The most important part of the experience is the follow-ups. Don’t leave your new connections hanging. Pick and choose the people you’d like to know better professionally and send them an email. Nothing too intense, just a quick ‘it was nice to meet you, I’d like to know more about your endeavors’ kind of thing. (Our) two biggest tips for networking newbies: Don’t leave your business cards at home, and perfect your handshake.”
