Connecting the Dots: How to Build a Strategic Business Network – February Lunch ‘n Learn

February 21, 2017 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

$5 – $10


Please join us on Tuesday, February 21, 2017 for Connecting the Dots: How to Build a Strategic Business Network. Innovation Factory’s February Lunch ‘n Learn presents renowned leadership coaches Simon Geoghegan and Katie Geoghegan.

Do you show up late to avoid the networking part of business events? Does the very mention of the word “networking” give you anxiety? Not sure what the point is or how to make sure these events help your business?

If so, you’re not alone.

Innovation Factory and The Forge bring you this presentation to help you make the connections you need to help your business.

Our dynamic speakers will take you through an engaging presentation, rich with hands-on learning opportunities to help you turn your next networking event into an opportunity to make meaningful connections that drive your business forward.

Networking in 2017 is not about building up the biggest pile of business cards. It’s about connecting the dots between your business problems and people who can help you solve them. And doing the same for others!


11:30am-noon – Lunch & Networking
Noon-1pm – Keynote Presentation
1pm – 2pm – Dessert & Networking
