Speed networking is designed to accelerate business contacts through facilitated introductions and conversations – at speed. A common structure is to rotate all participants in quick succession so that each person gets the chance to engage one on one with as many people as possible. For each rotation, you have a set time – generally 3 minutes each – to introduce yourself and learn more about the other person, making speed networking highly efficient.
Each person has time to deliver their elevator pitch and find out how they can be of service to each other including making introductions to others in their networks. For the busy, time-poor business professional, making many new connections in as little time as possible is gold.
