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, October 7th at The Cavern for a relaxed evening, and learn from the inspirational journeys of Shawn Chance (Vice President of Marketing & Business Development at Nymi, Mentor for Futurpreneur Canada) and Pete Bombaci (Strategic Action Focused Leader, Speaker, NFP Board Member, Country Director for Canada of The Movember Foundation).
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.
