Monthly Networking Night June – Recap
We had our first Networking Night on June 4th at LITM.
Thank you to everyone who was part of our inaugural event we look forward to seeing you monthly!
We want to give a huge shout out to LITM for stepping in last minute and letting us lock in the back area the day prior and for being so responsive. Please show them some love.
Back to the event!
We had about 20 people at the event with ranging professions and goals from the networking night. Everyone was able to interact with each other and after the speaker we sat down and really dove into networking with similar businesses.
Peter Gourri, of Peter Gourri Coaching, was our first guest speaker. He gave some amazing takeaways on how to successfully network: what to do with business cards, saying people’s names, and follow ups. He also gave everyone at the event a free life coaching session and his networking workbook, which will be available online through Amazon.
We asked 3 of our guests to share their experience of the Networking Night
Daniel Lopes Almeida, New Life Financial Service: Thank you for hosting the networking night. You were a great host. The speaker was excellent and he reinforced some things I already knew, but was not applying. An event like this brings growth in a person and with growth comes new friends.
Vanessa Tregenza, Health, Wellness, & Prosperity Coach: The GJC networking event was a great night - laid back and informative. Peter’s words were inspiring and he shared helpful insight on authentically connecting. The crowd was intimate and social, making it easy to connect with like-minded entrepreneurs and members of the community. I’m thankful to Growing in Jersey City for bringing together a great circle of shakers and doers in the area. Looking forward to the next one!
Juliet Foster, J Foster Imagery and Vive 2 Vida: GJC’s Networking event was a great way to connect with other amazing individuals in Jersey City that I would not have met otherwise. Great location, low key, and community focused; wonderful combination for a local group.
