EFCN Monthly Meeting

EFCN Networking & TED Talks

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!

Meeting Location: The Wellesley Of Victoria - Retirement Home
