The Danville Pittsylvania Chamber of Commerce will hold a Speed Networking event at 2 Witches Winery and Brewery at 4:00pm on November 19th, 2015.  Not familiar with the concept of Speed Networking?  Consider this.  When was the last time you went to a networking event and had a conversation with 30 different people?  If you find that meeting NEW people at a traditional mixer is challenging, you won’t want to miss out on Speed Networking.

Speed Networking is based on the concepts of “speed dating”, which provides busy professionals an opportunity to meet many prospects for romance in a short amount of time.   Business to Business Speed Networking offers the same opportunity on a professional level.  Ideal participants for Speed Networking include professionals who are just starting their careers or are new to the community, networking novices, and professionals who find the traditional mixer format overwhelming, or intimidating.   Professional Speed Networking gives business people an opportunity to meet each other one-on-one in four-minute increments with the goal of maximum exposure and minimum time commitment.  The rapid, mini-interviews make communication easy by providing structure and focus.  And, because time is limited, participants don’t have to fear being tied to one or two people for the duration of the event.  They are guaranteed to make many contacts, increasing the odds of establishing the building blocks for solid professional relationships in their community.    

Afterwards, participants will have the opportunity to enjoy a social hour (with a cash bar available) to reconnect, collect a business card or two, and enjoy light refreshments. The event will be hosted by 2 Witches Winery and Brewery (209 Trade Street) in Danville.  There will be a $20 registration fee for Chamber members and a $25 registration fee for non-members. 

Contact information of participants will be provided to all Chamber member attendees at no cost to allow for post-event follow up.


Seating is limited.  Due to the nature of the event we can accept no more than two people from the same company. Registrations are limited to 30 and will be accepted on a first come—first served basis with no direct competitors admitted.  Full attendance is vital for the success of this event. The registration fee will be charged for no-shows or cancellations occurring after November 16th.
