Event Details

Join us on the 3rd Thursday of every month for our morning networking event, Direct Connect. The fast-paced format is designed to help you initiate meaningful, strategic conversations within moments of meeting a new connection.

How it Works 

Participants will take a seat at the assigned table for round one and have 60 seconds to tell the rest of their table about their business. Once each person at the table has had a chance to speak, the table will be open for conversation until the round is complete. The emcee will announce the completion of each round and participants will move to a new table to begin again with a new set of connections. This format allows participants to engage in conversation with more than 20 other attendees and allows for maximum exposure of each business during the event.

The room opens at 7:30 am, and the networking starts at 8 am.
