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. Add to this the fact that we KNOW what we have been doing, but are not aware of ALL the possibilities out in the world. On the flipside, some members claim to be “all things to all people,” when clearly their background only lends itself to very narrow applications.

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

- 10:00 am: Formal Meeting Adjourns (Continued Ad Hoc Networking Encouraged)

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 Rooms 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.
