What an exciting professional networking event in Seattle! With so many other business events, holiday festivities and shopping going on we were very happy with our attendance of about 40 or so. We began with open networking then formed into groups based upon interests such as ‘foodies & cooking’, ‘travel’ and ‘sports’, which provided each person two minutes to share a ‘story’ from their personal life about the topic, then briefly share about their professional position. Each group was then asked to vote for the best story in the group that would be shared later.
