Local Author, Jack Allen will be our guest speaker. He is author of "Mindset for Success: Shut Up Your Inner Critic and Get the Life You Want." He will give a short talk and give some networking tips. He is a fun, witty and engaging speaker.

Emilie Anne Photography will also be on site to provide free professional headshots. This is a great opportunity to update your LinkedIn profile picture.

Throughout the evening there will be networking activities and speakers. This is not your typical networking event. Meet the people behind the LinkedIn profiles. You may meet a few friends and business connections. There is no cheesy icebreaker. We will show you how to utilize new app local networking feature to connect directly with the other people in the room. Online is a great way to connect, but the offline relationships you build will be the ones that last.
