Meet Local Professionals at Networking Event this Friday at the Y
Get out those business cards and get ready to make some new and valuable connections.
The Penn Hills YMCA will be hosting a Professionals Networking Event on February 24th from 5:30 to 7:00 pm. This is a great opportunity to meet seasoned professionals as well as the up comers in an enjoyable atmosphere with food and music.
There are many reasons you should attend not only this event, but make attending events like this part of your professional routine.
Networking events increase your visibility, and raise awareness for the products and services you provide. New business relationships often lead to new opportunities for referrals or even strategic partnerships. Additionally, meeting new and inspiring people can often provide a motivational boost of energy into your own ventures.
