Have you ever met like-minded professionals in a FUN social setting? Well this is your chance!

Networking events aren’t always fun, and a lot of people feel nervous before going to them. The good news is, they’re not all like that. Don’t believe us? See for yourself!

SIPOconnects is a fun, interactive, skill-building social mixer/speaker series that connects young professionals to community leaders, encouraging networking, mentorship, and collaboration. It takes place downtown during after-work hours, and gives you the chance to network over drinks and listen to a couple of influential speakers.

Join us Wednesday, August 19th at The Central for a relaxed evening, and learn from the inspirational journeys of Kate Todd (Multitalented Musician & Actor / SIPO Board Member) and Greg Leach (Strategic Marketing Director / SIPO Board Member).

We might all have our own projects or goals in life, but we don’t have to do it all on our own. With SIPOconnects, we can build a community where we learn from each other and succeed together. Let’s turn your positive ideas into action.
