Last night, Alan K'necht was the keynote speaker at a community networking event in Thornhill, Ontario. He addressed a combination of approximately 80, business owners, professionals, job seekers, manager, vendors and all who want to learn more about social at the Aish Hatorah Thornhill Community Shul (ATCS) . His talk titled "Using Social for Personal & Business Growth", was well received and was followed up with a speed networking event lead by Alan.
During this speed networking event, each participant faced another (in 2 rows) and had 30 seconds to tell other person, what they had hoped to get out of the evening, what their favorite take away was and bit about themselves. After 30 seconds it was the next persons turn. After a minute, one side shifted to the left and process started again. After 20 minutes, everyone was invited to continue their conversations over refreshments and while exploring vendor booths at the event.
Based on feedback from attendees, Alan said "What a great diverse group of people. I received nothing but complements for delivering great information that they could start using immediately".
His session was video taped by the event organizers and we hope to have a link to video as soon as it is available.
