If you haven’t yet had the opportunity to present at EFCN, now is your time! Our January Networking meeting will see six members provide a five-minute presentation for our information, entertainment and edification. Presenters must be confirmed by November 29th, 2018.
I love connecting people and helping to make great things happen. In March last year, I started a new company called Coastline Marketing Inc. to bring together creators and harnessed their abilities to drive success for businesses and non-profits.
I’m currently on three Boards: The Parent Advisory Committee for my kid’s school, The 100 Men Who Care Foundation” as a founding member, and the Elder Friendly Community Network Planning Committee, which has been near and dear to my heart for over a decade.
I’ve seen many excellent community initiates to serve elders begin right here with members of EFCN.
I believe networking – the act of connecting on a human level to start and nourish relationships - is key to finding success in our world. Where that leads us is always the real adventure.
I have a few simple rules while networking:
Engage all your thoughts and feelings with the person you’re conversing with.
Prepare your introduction that encapsulates what you do. Practice it a few times to see how it sounds.
Come with a joke or a funny story.
Set up three coffee meetings to start 2019 off right! Get to really know someone new.
And the most important rule of all… Have FUN!
2800 Blanshard St, Victoria, BC V8T 5B5
The entrance door for EFCN is on Market Street between Nanaimo Street and Blanshard Street.
Our EFCN sign and/or the helpful Wellesley staff will direct you to the room. Be sure to come a little earlier (we suggest 7:30) to allow yourself time to arrive and visit before the meeting starts at 8:00 am.
There is parking around and about the building, and Long and McQuade has generously offered their upper parking area on the corner of Market Street and Nanaimo Street.
