Virtual Speed Networking

Virtual Speed Networking

@ Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce Delivered Online Edinburgh Midlothian EH2 2LE

15th October, 2021 09:30-11:00 Event
As great as networking events are, sometimes it can be difficult to get quality talk time. Perhaps you're attending an event and aim to speak to a specific set of people, but others have the same objective, keeping them occupied for the entire event and you never get to make that crucial introduction.

Virtual Speed Networking creates a structured opportunity to meet accomplished professionals, virtually, one business professional at time. Just some of the benefits include:
  • Connecting through 1-2-1’s with all of the businesses in the ‘room’
  • A safe space to make new connections, when face-to-face networking isn’t possible
  • Improve your ‘elevator pitch’ - you only have 2 minutes so you may want to pre-prepare your speech to explain what your organisation does, clearly and concisely
  • As a new member, it’s a great way to kick off your Chamber membership 
  • Increase your sales pipeline, raise brand awareness and grow your professional network.

What our members had to say:

''The Edinburgh Chamber Speed Networking events need to be in your networking calendar. The team do a fantastic job of organising them and making sure you have the opportunity to meet a range of new people. What other event gives you the opportunity to meet, chat to and exchange details with 10+ new businesses? It’s fast, fun and for everyone!'' - Heather Astbury, The Reputation People

To ensure variety, we can only accept only one booking per company.

Please note that no late comers will be admitted entry. Networking begins at 09:40am sharp, and once underway, any additions would break the chain and result in people speaking to the same people twice.
