JCI High Speed Business Networking at Mayfair Hotel & Spa in Coconut Grove 8/7/09

Here is some good news; business networking events have finally moved into the new millennium!

For years business networking events have followed the same formula. People show up, mingle, and leave with some business cards. Not this time. Thanks to the efforts of a few passionate, inspired and driven young people, there is a new way to network!

The Junior Chamber International (also known as JCI or the Jaycees) is a worldwide federation of young leaders and entrepreneurs with chapters in over 110 countries. Thanks to their creativity and desire to improve people to people networking, they have come up with a method which allows professionals to truly get the most out business contact exchanges. This new method is high speed networking, also known in the JCI community as “Business Networking Event” or BNE.

This new way of networking allows a participant to meet 10 -15 business contacts in about an hour, spending as little as 3 minutes talking to someone with whom they may be able to do business. The secret? Bypassing formalities and realizing that time is of the essence.

Now that you have a better understanding of this revolutionary way of making professional contacts, we would like to introduce you to one of the chapters that will help your reach your professional goals, that chapter is the JCI of Coconut Grove.

Known as the Champagne Chapter, the Jaycees of Coconut Grove have been around for more than thirty years and has been recognized as one of the most outstanding chapters in the nation. In additional, the chapter has seen many awards, including “Most Outstanding Chapter in all of the Americas”, and in 2002, the JCI World Congress recognized it as one of the best chapters in the world.

This summer the JCI of Coconut Grove has decided to organize a BNE that will bring together young professionals and entrepreneurs from all corners of the globe. The event will be one of many activities offered to those who are interested in leadership and professional development during the appropriately entitled “Gateway of the Americas” Conference. During this three-day conference, Miami will be showcased as the city with the strongest business, cultural, and international connections among the countries in the Americas.

The BNE portion will be taking place at the Mayfair Hotel & Spa in Coconut Grove, on Friday August 7th, 2009. Registration will start at 6:00 pm and the networking activities will begin at 7:30pm. Come early to enjoy free appetizers and an introduction to the conference by a key leader in the community. Trust us when we say you will not want to miss out on this opportunity!
