How many networking events have you been to where all people do is hand out their business cards?
The days of networking events leaving you feeling prickly because you just wasted an hour of your time (and no authentic connections to show for it) are gone! Welcome to Pass the Pineapple – a new non-prickly networking mixer at Dayhouse Coworking.
Here’s how Pass the Pineapple works:
- Doors open at 5pm for attendees to arrive, sign in, grab a beverage and mingle. Resist the urge to whip out your business card at this time!
- At 5:30pm sharp we settle in a circle to Pass the Pineapple. With the pineapple (no, not a real one) in hand, each person introduces themselves and shares an “ask” and a “give”. An ask might be “I need MailChimp help” or “I’m looking for a new dentist”. A give might be “I’m really good at Gmail hacks” or “I have a part-time nanny looking for more work”.
- After working our way around the circle, we’ll get up and connect with those you may be able to help, or whose help you need.
- At 7pm, the event ends, and you'll have made inroads to building authentic new relationships!
