This event features interactive networking events to forge relationships between guests. Several people will receive awards for their efforts in getting Twisted Networking off the ground. They will also unveil their new website, www.twistednetworking.com.
Jevonya Allen, the brainchild of the Twisted Networking of Rhode Island event, said the concept fed off her personal experiences with various networking formats. Allen said some of the events she attended were structured, which she loved, but at times were too stringent for her lifestyle. There were others that were fun, but were too relaxed for her liking, she added.
Allen said there is some structure in how the night goes, but the response from guests has been positive. She noted that the events draw nearly 200 people from various industries and parts of the state. She added that being somewhat centrally located helps bring in different people and a chance to further their network.
The April soiree will also feature butler-style passed hors d’oeuvre’s, vendors, raffles and other activities. Allen said she is looking for raffle items, gift baskets and other donations from area merchants and individuals. She added that being somewhat centrally located helps bring in different people and a chance to expand their respective networks.
Tickets for this event are $20 and may be purchased by contacting Jevonya Allen at 301-5938 or by e-mailing her at email@example.com.
If you are interested in learning more about the Twisted Networking monthly events, with next event will take place on Tues., May 8.
