Social Speed Networking presented by Swap The Biz
Limited Capacity seats available

If you are wondering "What Is Social Speed Networking?" Well the answer is simple there is one rule to this - you cannot talk about your business at all (except you should exchange business cards). Why is that? Well, it is our basic premise at Swap The Biz that all business stems from building a social relationship first and that is what we want you to focus on.

There will be 10 rounds of 4 minutes each and we will make announcements each time for you to switch.

Now I'm sure a lot of you are thinking - Isn't business networking about my business? The answer is yes, but we have seen time and time again that the most successful relationships in life are those that are based on a connection, a common interest or interests, shared values or all of the above. So the purpose here is to find some common ground.
