How do you currently spend your Thursday morning?
From 7:30 am to 9:00 am every Thursday morning at Clarkston’s United Methodist Church you may be missing a free networking opportunity. Small business owners, job seekers, employers, entrepreneurs can benefit by expanding their local network at Coffee Club.
Sometimes people like to know what they are getting into before they show up at a networking event so allow me to go over the basics.
Clarkston’s Coffee Club consists of free networking, coffee, donuts (sometimes cookies) and an optional dollar donation to the church each week for allowing us to use the space. From 7:30 am to 8:00 am people can exchange business cards, make introductions, and leave a pile of their business cards on a table where the cards are displayed each week indefinitely (we never discard business cards on the table, even if you only show up one time). At 8:00 am each attendee is given one minute to share in front of the group with their website displayed on the projector. Once everyone has been given the chance to speak generally an additional 20 minutes of networking will then ensue.
Attending a free networking event not only benefits you and everyone else in attendance but it also creates the opportunity for individuals to expand coffee club by inviting everyone within their network to coffee club which expands the overall network for everyone at Coffee Club. The opportunity then becomes limitless and creates a weekly networking event that becomes as valuable as the amount of effort the current attendees are willing to put forth to expand the network. Plus the the additional business they already generate from existing attendees.
Coffee Club is a win win and if you believe your business could benefit from free networking with highly motivated individuals then join us next Thursday at 7:30 am.
