WHAT IS SPEED NETWORKING?
Networking continues to be one of the most powerful tools to create and sustain successful business relationships. In a recent global survey undertaken by the Harvard Business Review, "95% of participants said that face-to-face meetings are a key factor in successfully building and maintaining long-term business relationships.... and 79% said that in-person meetings are the most effective way to meet new clients to sell business". In today's fast-paced digital world, the ability to effectively run networking events that maximize time and create effective connections is critical.
