Maximize Your business networking Efforts with Contacts N Coffee

We sure manage to pack a lot into one little hour every Monday (Ojai, Santa Ynez) Tuesday (Conejo Valley, Carlsbad), Wednesday (San Luis Obispo, Ventura) and Friday (Santa Barbara, Camarillo) morning. That's because we keep things on track and focused—we've all got businesses to run, right? Although our professional networking group has a relaxed vibe, we have found that a little structure goes a long way to keep our program high-performing, effective and relevant.

Here's how a typical meeting unrolls:

7:55–8:15am REGISTRATION
Members and guests arrive, pay, chat and serve themselves coffee

8:15–8:20am ANNOUNCEMENTS
News of business events in the community and from local Chambers of Commerce.

8:20–8:50am BUSINESS PROMOTIONS
Each attendee stands and presents a 30-second "elevator speech" to briefly promote his/her business.

9:00–9:10am SPEAKER PRESENTATION
Every week, a different member presents a 10-minute talk about the business they represent.

9:10–9:25am DOOR PRIZES
Fun drawings for giveaways donated by members. If you have promotional items or other gifts, please bring them—and get even more exposure.

9:30am MEETING OFFICIALLY ENDS
However, some of the best professional networking takes place during the half-hour AFTER the meeting, so feel free to hang out and schmooze for a while.
