Knowing what’s important

Editorial by Matt Bud from the January 17, 2021 Newsletter

I always find it interesting during 90-second announcements how nearly identical are the descriptions of “ideal jobs” when compared to the one a member has most recently left. Since we are all financial folks, I guess it shouldn’t surprise me. As history based individuals, it is hard to have any view of the world that isn’t colored by our past experience.

Several things to note BEFORE the meeting:

1. In order to participate in a Zoom meeting, you must download Zoom. You can download the free version.

2. Please go to www.Zoom.us in advance of the meeting and download Zoom if you have not already done so in the past. Please do this prior to our scheduled time, to avoid any technical issues that may arise. This will enable us to begin on time and avoid delays associated with login problems.

By default, when the Zoom meeting starts, you will be on “mute“, meaning that no one else can hear you. In order to speak during the meeting, lower your mouse to the bottom of your screen. That will bring up a black band with various icons. On the lower left side, there will be a microphone icon. Clicking on that will unmute you when you want to speak. If you wish to ask a question or to comment without actually speaking, the "Chat" feature enables you to submit it in writing.

3. Please have your Zoom setup tested in advance, per the testing instructions you receive upon downloading and installing the software.

Agenda

- 6:20 - 7:30 pm: Breakout Room Sessions and/or presentation
- 7:30 pm: Formal Meeting Adjourns

The primary purpose of Chapter meetings is to provide an opportunity for you to meet, network, and learn from your FENG friends. We normally break into small groups for two or three 20-to-30 minute Breakout Room sessions. Session begins with each person taking 60-90 seconds to introduce themselves (strict limit; great "elevator speech" practice for an initial contact with a potential networking source) covering:
- Who I am
- Where I work or worked last
- What I'm looking for
- What I need help with

The rest of Breakout room session is informal conversation focusing on your distinctive competencies, future plans, and target companies, and how The FENG members can help in your search.

Agenda

General Networking

Chapter meetings represent a golden opportunity. Please join us for an evening of networking with your peers from various disciplines. Our objective is to support each other, give each member an opportunity to continually hone their networking skills, share leads and discuss general intelligence about the market.

Practicing your 90-second announcement in the comfort of your own home is a good thing to do, but it is hardly enough. The missing element is a live audience. The additional benefit is that the live audience you will encounter at a meeting of The FENG will also be a friendly audience so you can improve this important tool.

Please bring:
- Make sure your screen name has your: First and Last Name
- Your 90-second elevator speech
