BREAKING NEWS from Ripple Headquarters!
We've scheduled our next 8 Minute Ripple Connection Event for April 21st from 6:30-8:45PM. If you are in Austin I hope you will make the time and come on out and enjoy an evening of real connection and engagement. This ain't your typical networking event let me assure you!
Just yesterday I was speaking to someone who had be referred to me and the topic of my Ripple events came up. Apparently this gentleman's good friend and former manager had attended a previous 8 Minute Ripple and has raved about it ever since. Despite her apparent enthusiasm I could still see he was suspect so I proceeded to tell him why I am so passionate about the concept. I figured maybe that message should be shared with you as well.
So I decided to turn the entire processing of networking on it's ear. At a Ripple event it wasn't going to be about the business card or the quippy introduction. In fact those two things are outlawed at an 8 Minute Ripple. No we've replaced the uncomfortableness of working a room just to meet people with a warm and inviting conversation amongst friends. We've created two distinct exercises that by design get people talking, laughing and getting to know one another in a manner that you would never expect at a "networking function."
As I continued to speak about why I was so excited about the process of Rippling I could see that some of my excitement was beginning to rub off on him. He recalled a few stories of networking events that had gone horribly wrong and how it had left him feeling less than enthusiastic about, as he called it, "the process." In fact had it not been for trying to build a better network which he knew he clearly needed, he wouldn't put himself through the pain of networking at all.
So if you are anywhere near Austin I hope you will consider joining us on April 21st. It will be an evening to remember I promise or your money back! How's that for confidence?
