The Jackson Chamber of Commerce raised the temperature on business this Friday as they had their first Business At 212º event.
Business At 212º is the rebranded and revamped B for Business.
Each event focuses on a different business trait. The focus of this event was action.
When you sign up for the event, you receive a business article or “hot tip” in your inbox every Friday.
When you attend, you have the chance to set up one of two table displays for your business and give a two minute presentation on your business, if your business card is chosen.
In addition to the table displays, another card is drawn and that person’s business will be featured in the Chamber monthly membership newsletter. That newsletter has a readership of around 2,000 members.
Chad Wilson, President of Foundation Bank, gave five tips to improve your networking. One of these important tips to see the person you’re networking with as a person, not a sale.
Participants then moved into place to begin speed business networking.
Borrowing from speed dating, speed business networking lets multiple people meet each other in two minute sessions. One person speaks for one minute and the other person speaks for the other minute.
After those two minutes are up, those on one side of the table would shift while the other side stayed still and the two minute process begins again.
