The Northern Rhode Island Chamber of Commerce strengthens the economic climate through business leadership that fosters member and community prosperity.

Speed Networking

Believe it or not, Speed-Networking is just what it sounds like – quick, focused opportunities to meet those who can boost your career and business. It's designed to maximize quality, lasting, professional connections in a short period of time.

Attendees have about 2 minutes with each partner until directed to move on to meet someone new. It is the hope that these connections will lead to follow-up meetings, lunches and referrals down the road.

Be sure to bring plenty of business cards and prepare a 1 minute “elevator speech” to tell each partner about yourself or your business.
