Testimonials from Past Networking Events.................

Em ran such an well-structured event. It had a great variety of quality attendees, everybody was upbeat, I made at least 4 very significant contacts, and it was a load of fun.  - S. Harrell

 "I will DEFINITELY be coming to the next one, and highly recommend others do the same. If you have friends who could also benefit from this entrepreneurial business networking them a favor and invite them to come along too!!" – B. Fuller

"I loved the format - informal networking the first half hour to forty five minutes, then formal intros and descriptions of everyone and their businesses, but still very relaxed. More informal networking at the end, but you could then focus on the people whose introductions peaked your interest. I'll definitely be at Em's next event. "  - D. Parker
