GDASTD October Meeting



Speed Networking


This event has been cancelled.








Time is of the essence! It’s crunch time!

You’ll feel the electricity!


This Greater Detroit ASTD Speed Networking event is an opportunity for you to meet more people than you would using traditional networking in the same amount of time.

It is a fast-paced event ,so here is a quick rundown of the plays:

Participants will be split into two groups and seated at tables in pairs facing each other. The person sitting across from you is your first partner.


When the whistle blows, one person in each pair will have two minutes to talk. When you hear a short burst from the whistle, you will switch speaking “positions” with your partner. At four minutes, we will blow the whistle again and you’ll have one minute to wrap up, get up, and get ready for the next play. 


Here’s some coaching to help you get your game on!

  • Polish up your elevator speech.
  • Be prepared with questions.
  • Take notes.
  • Bring a stack of good old-fashioned paper business cards.

There will be 12 five-minute rotations with a 10-minute break at halftime.

We will have a referee on the field to make sure the game moves along. You don’t want to be called for blocking when it is time to move to the next seat. After the game is over ,there will be time to reconnect with those you met and meet a few more.

So start your training now and join us on Tuesday, October 14th.

And remember, we’re going to just go out there and have some fun!
