Not just another networking event!
Very well structured yet very relaxing that opened up everyone’s personality and all was willingly shared ideas/thoughts into the discussion. I’d recommend everyone to at least go to one session - I’d go to more! Well done Shazaf! See you in Hoi An!!
I participated in Linkked’s Structured Networking held at 500 Start Ups, and it was amazing! It gave a new approach to networking that I have never seen before. I was honestly very surprised on how much Shazaf's methods work. The atmosphere was very relaxed and everyone was truly engaged with one another. It is a great way to meet and network with intelligent and interesting people!
This past evening had to stay late at work and was told a group would stay on my floor for 2 hours. Given I work on one of the top floors of 1 World Trade Center, I thought it would be another group of brokers snacking on finger food brought in to sell space by property manager or another group of med students graduating and snacking again on finger food and joy of billing for life health insurance companies. It was not, it was just a group of Columbia Business School Graduates, about 25, coming for again finger food and supposedly a networking event. Thought again it was as meaningless as the gorup of real estate brokers coming with rolex watches and pumping prices per square foot. It would be a noise of mindlessness. Suddenly that room became all quiet and a moderator took leadership of the group, First, she said she would introduce herself at the end and started to talk about the importance of networking properly in life defining the why how and when , how it impacts careers centered on project blocks and had suddenly in a second phase all members network in parity and discover themselves and learn about themselves. She was using spectacular tools and will not reveal. It was such an enriching collaborative symphony At the end she introduced herself and all clapped and I also did clap. It was a spectacular workshop and I would recommend it to anybody unless they wish to become a monk at ST Martin du Canigou
Skeptic... I have organised 70+ networking events, so seeing all these 5 star reviews, even after having met Shazaf, left me very skeptic. Paying for a networking event? Never done that either, and not inclined. She has an Ed.M in Psychology and years of experience, but organises events... suspicious. Ends up, I registered, paid, went, and really loved every minute of it. Go there to have a conversation with people to get to know them for real, go there for a real engaging human conversation where people never value you for your job title but for who you really are. It was indeed a 5 star evening.
Excellent experience at each of the three events I've attended. The thoughtfulness and care that Shazaf puts into each event really shows. She creates an environment for you to make lasting connections, and you leave feeling great about yourself! Highly recommend!
If you haven't attended a Linkked networking event yet, sign up for the next one now. You'll see, it's nothing like anything you've experienced before. I was part of the last Sip & Tips and was thrilled with the event's content and guests attending. Made so meaningful connections that evening! Looking forward to the next Linkked event Shazaf.
Amazing event! I learnt a lot, made new friends and got tips and support for my dreams. It was Shazaf's unique format and facilitation, intimate setting and diverse crowd that made this special. Highly recommended!
