If you’ve never attended “Coffee & Connections,” you’re missing out on what has become one of the Chamber’s most popular monthly programs. Designed to be casual, convenient and effective, it starts with a great breakfast followed by a lively round of introductions and “mini-commercials” from those in attendance. It truly is “speed-networking” at its best as participants introduce themselves, their business or organization and touch on the highlights of their products and services, special offers, announcements or upcoming events. Don’t worry about being a great public speaker – the atmosphere is casual and fun. You may get a friendly heckling and if you go over the two minute time limit, you’ll be “gonged.” This helps us stay on schedule so you can be on your way within the hour.
Bring your business cards, brochures, coupons or promotional items and be sure to download the Chamber’s new app, “Socio” before you arrive so that you can take part in a “virtual business card exchange” with anyone in attendance simply by shaking your phone. “Coffee & Connections” is held on the second Wednesday of each month from 8 to 9 a.m. at various Chamber member restaurants and catering facilities.
April’s event is going to be a special one hosted by The Jefferson County Farm Bureau with its board members serving as celebrity chefs, making made-to-order omelettes with all your favorite fillings. And all of the ingredients featured will be locally sourced! Farm fresh eggs, bacon, sausage and vegetables all produced by our local farmers. Bring your staff, sales team or co-workers and see what this event can do for you. Details along with RSVP information are below.
“Coffee & Connections” truly represents what the Chamber is all about; local businesses and organizations promoting their products, services and programs. Networking with and learning from fellow business professionals and nurturing an environment of working together to make the local business community bigger, better and stronger.
