Men's Club Business Networking Group, January 21

From Jeff Spector:
"The primary goal of the 
first session of our new Business Networking Group  (Sunday, January 21 at 9:30 am)  will be to break the ice, enable members to get to know each other and each other's businesses, and establish expectations for the group going forward.

We'll start with a series of short activities led by Mike Bonheim designed to help members identify their needs, and from those needs define their goals and objectives for the networking series.

"We will then have a period of 'structured engagement,' a strategically designed group activity that will facilitate directed networking and interaction." Read more!!
