It’s back! After the highly successful Speed Networking Brunch last January 2015, Freelance Blend and Freelance Pro powered by Manila Workshops would like to bring back — The Speed Networking Night!
Speed Networking Night is not your typical networking event. It’s similar to speed dating, except it’s for freelancers and entrepreneurs! And, now we made it more exciting by hosting the event inside one of the hippest bars in BGC.
Why should I join this Speed Networking Night?
Your Goal: To connect and form partnerships (and friendships) with the most number of like-minded individuals in less than an hour.
Other takeaways include:
– The opportunity to get hired by local or foreign clients attending the event.
– The opportunity to hire a freelancer to help solve your business problem.
– Share a beer and hangout with key influencers in the industry.
– Become part of an ever-growing community of freelancers and entrepreneurs.
– Receive a 2-month premium Raketeer pacakage from Raket.ph upon registration
One of the biggest winners of the first Speed Networking event was software developer, Mark Tutor, who got hired by a client for a big project after the event.
Here is what he had to say about it:
“The speed networking is so much fun. I was able to meet a lot of people with different backgrounds.
I met CEOs of international companies. I met a logistics expert, web designers, programmers, investment specialist and more! I can’t remember everyone but it was fun and very challenging because you have to talk to people one after another. It goes on for more than an hour. It’s amazing!
And the best part, I met a client who needs a website and it’s a big project! I’m looking forward to the next speed networking. Actually I’ve already told everyone I know about speed networking and they’re asking when is the next one.
Oh and by the way, the food is great! Freelance Blend rocks!”
