Women’s Speed Networking

WOW! The Women of Woburn is partnering with four area chambers to bring you a women’s speed networking night at the Cafe Escadrille. You will meet women from Arlington, Bedford, Lexington, Winchester, Woburn and beyond!

Join area business women for a fun, no pressure speed networking event. Make sure to bring plenty of business cards and plan to meet 20-30 new people.  When you arrive you’ll be asked to fill out a short form with key facts about your business.  After some casual networking you’ll join a table of 8 or 10 other business women and when the speed networking round starts you’ll use those key points to introduce yourself and your business to the others at your table.  When the round is complete you’ll move on to another table and introduce yourself to that group.   Each round will last approximately 15 minutes and there will be 3 rounds.  There’ll be plenty of time for casual networking and socializing afterwards.

The Cafe Escadrille will provide delicious complimentary appetizers and there will be a cash bar.
RSVPCo-hosting the event will be the Arlington Chamber of Commerce and the Lexington Chamber of Commerce.
