The Boerne Chamber of Commerce organized its first Speed Networking event sponsored by Hungry Horse Restaurant and Boerne on the Banks on Tuesday, January 11 at the Boerne Convention & Community Center. The Boerne Meeting Room was in attendance among approximately 80 other local businesses. The turnout was so tremendous that we did not get a chance to meet with every business owner! We were given one minute to present our business pitch and trade cards with the person across, then shift seats and repeat. It was a high-energy method to meet new faces and exchange contact information quickly. I imagine there will be another event just like it again.
A nice lunch was provided by Hungry Horse Restaurant and several local business representatives had the opportunity to share their business story and offer prizes to a few lucky winners. Among the presenters were Aladdin Cleaning & Restoration, All County Home Care, and Belden’s Automotive & Tires.
We hope to stay connected with local businesses on an ongoing basis. We’ll be seeing you soon at a business event near you!
