How are we going to do it?

Using the power of the Digital Age and the ZOOM interface, there will be 25 minute speed networking rounds per group and then virtually rotate to the next room after the 10 minute intermission. The breakout rooms will be OPEN NETWORKING rooms and completely RANDOMIZED for the entire event.

Each room will begin with introductions of your 30-second elevator speech. Come prepared and dressed appropriately for a networking event. Business Casual is Appropriate.

Contact a VETS2INDUSTRY volunteer if you need advice on what to wear and we will assist.

Email events@vets2industry.org and make sure your spam filter is OFF for this email address or you will miss the crucial Post-survey.

The first 30-minutes will include welcome address by a Brian Arrington, Intro of Keynote Speaker, and Sponsor Highlight. Then the start of the Recruiters Presentation, Rules of Engagement and breakout groups.

Agenda (All Times EASTERN):

2pm-2:07pm: Welcome by VETS2INDUSTRY Founder /President Brian Arrington

2:07pm-2:17pm: Keynote

2:17pm- 2:20pm: Sponsor Highlight

3:20pm-6:20pm: ***Networking*** (see why 3-hours long, below)

6:20pm-7pm: Closing comments/ Open Q & A by Brian Arrington

(Based on previous event Post survey, attendees wanted longer breakout rooms, enjoyed the 8-11 person breakout groups, randomization, longer group sessions of 25-minutes, longer intermission from 5-minute so we went to 20-minute intermission rounds this time 25/20 rounds)

***The 5-hour event length is not intended for people to stay 5 hours. People can stay as long as they want, leave when they want, and come back as desired as long as they have the password in the invite that will be emailed prior to the event from Eventbrite with the link***

Facilitators in the rooms are only there as guides if conversations dry up or guests need help or need private rooms. This is not a training course or education seminar. This is a networking event to mingle. Be prepared to talk about yourselves, your goals, ambitions, and businesses.

As Always:
