How it Works
Registration and open networking begins at 7:30 a.m., the program begins at 8 and ends at 9.
When you join the meeting on Zoom, Alexander Helgar will greet you and register you. If you are having IT issues, you will be added to a breakout session with Andrea Tamez to fix your audio and video. When you are set, you will enter the Main Room to do some light networking. The event will start at 8 a.m. Alexander will introduce the sponsor for Direct Connect, and they will give a short presentation. Once the sponsor has given their remarks, the networking will begin. Everyone will randomly be placed in breakout sessions with 5-6 people. Everyone has a minute to give their elevator pitch and ask further questions. A prompt will show on your screen announcing there is one minute left before moving to the main room. All attendees will join four different breakout sessions. At 9 a.m., Alexander will end with closing remarks and you adjourn.
