MELBOURNE, FLA. —The Florida Institute of Technology Women’s Business Center (WBC) will host “A Gathering of Interesting Women” Dec. 6, from 5:30 to 8 p.m.
The gathering offers women the opportunity to meet and network with other women in the area’s business community through WBC’s Networking for Women program. This is not a speed networking event.
The goal of the network is to guide and support women in building relationships and advancing their careers. Those who plan to attend are strongly encouraged to reach out beyond their normal network and invite at least one other “interesting” woman.
“The event promises to be inspirational, informative and fun,” said Donn Miller-Kermani, director, Women’s Business Center.
There will be networking for the first 30 to 45 minutes followed by Debbie DeBie, Brainstorming Buddies. She will offer a brainstorming topic on creative giveaways.
“Most entrepreneurs offer door prizes, raffles and auctions. Finding giveaways that help brand you, that are high impact and that represent you well can provide a better bang for your buck,” said Miller-Kermani.
Networking for Women is also sponsored by the Florida Small Business Development Center at Brevard Community College and the Melbourne Regional Chamber of East Central Florida Women of Excellence Initiative.
The event will be held at the Denius Student Center’s Hartley Room and the cost is $6. For more information and to R.S.V.P. for you and your guest, send e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, or register online at wbc.fit.edu.
