Group Networking at IPIC 2015 - Customize your experience with the solutions YOU need!

Posted By Brenda DiVincenzo, Monday, May 11, 2015

Alternative Board - Group Networking + Solution Creation 

Monday 4-5:30pm

Come prepared to discuss a business decision that you need to make or a professional challenge that you are facing. What is the significance/potential impact? Are you seeking ideas, opinions, alternatives, confirmation? Your fellow members will provide varied and diverse experience and you will go home with at least two takeaways. All participants will benefit from the small and large group discussions. Your small group will form a bond for future networking opportunities. (By June 22nd we will provide attendees with a handout, containing resources to help get you started prior to IPIC.)



Elevator Pitch Evolution - Speed "Dating" Style

Wednesday 4-5:30pm

What is your "WHY"? What is your Vision Statement? What is your Unique Value Proposition? Come prepared with your 60 second elevator pitch. Work with your fellow members on making it memorable, comfortable and special! (By June 22nd we will provide attendees with a handout, containing resources to help get you started prior to IPIC.)



How can we increase profits? - World Cafe Networking Event

Thursday 2-3:30pm

Network with your fellow members on up to three topics most relevant to your business. All brainstorming notes (connections, ideas, themes, insights further questions, etc.) on all topics will be shared with the entire group following IPIC. (By June 22nd we will provide attendees with a survey to identify the eight most needed topics.)

“When a few people are gathered and engaged in an issue or question that they really care about in an open-minded way, that collective wisdom emerges.”

– Samantha Tan at the 2008 Girl Scout National Council Session
