    Greater Riverview Chamber of Commerce Hosts
    Speed Networking Virtually for Members
     
    With the global pandemic still taking play in hosting in-person events, the Greater Riverview Chamber of Commerce (GRCC) pivoted their brand-new speed networking event to be done virtually via Zoom. This event is called TurboChatter NetworkNite and GRCC utilizes the Zoom breakout rooms feature to execute as if people were in-person at a round table. The goal of this event is for attendees to find other goal-oriented professionals, fast track their relationship building, and fine tune their networking skills.

    On Wednesday, August 19th, GRCC hosted its first TurboChatter NetworkNite with an attendance of 36. Each attendee was put through 5 rotations and during each rotation, they met new people. Each attendee in each rotation had the opportunity to talk 1 minute about themselves and 1 minute about their business. In each breakout room, there was an assigned captain that ensured attendees were staying to their allotted speaking time.

    Attendees paid $10 to attend this 90-minute event. They were given a Tips for Best Networking Practices document along with an excel sheet that included the contact information of all the attendees. Thank you goes to FirstLight Home Care, OEL Heating & Cooling, TEAM REITH - RE/MAX Realty Unlimited and Tessera of Brandon for sponsoring our first TurboChatter NetworkNite. The next TurboChatter NetworkNite is scheduled to take place on Wednesday, October 21st from 4:30-6:30 PM via Zoom.
