Making good connections!

The Neighborhood Networking event organized by Mercury Organizing Professionals and Lidia Varesco Design was another great success! On June 24th, NN’s joint networking effort with BBR was held at Cuatro Restaurant in the South Loop area. Even though, there was threat of rain,  many folks came out and ventured out of their area to make new connections. The food was fantastic, thanks to Sara Navarro at Cuatro who went above and beyond to help us make this event the success that it was. Cynthia Slade of The Shalli Company brought the very coveted raffle prize from Microsoft; the small buisness software. And last but not least, The featured exhibitor was“The Eve Project”. Heidi, a board member of the program brought information and material to explain how the program works and how one can donate.

It was great to see familiar faces at the event. It is wonderful to hear how people are choosing to comeback to this event because they find it either; effective or just simply fun. I especially enjoyed meeting all the new people attending the event. I am finding this is a wonderful way to learn more about local businesses and meeting new people. For Mercury Organizing Professionals, its been a way to demonstrate and share our organizing experiences with others.  Neighborhood Networking is a unique way of seeing Chicago and meeting the local small businesses in a fun, relaxed business networking event.

Neighborhood Networking April Success

The April Networking event at Smokin’ Woody’s on Lincoln Ave. was a great success. Lot’s of people were there and the food was great. Raffle Prizes included gifts from Microsoft software, massage, coffee, fashion designer, organizer services and music. So, I hope you can make it to the next event in May.  Join us after work at Dee’s to meet and mingle with fellow businesses. Meet a nearby business owner or make connections in a different neighborhood—as well as sample offerings from a local Lincoln Park favorite.!
