We thought it would be fun and interesting to post something that shows expectations and a walk through of arriving at a New Media Dayton event. So, here’s what you can experience on the second Friday of every month (FAO – for attendees only :-))
1) Upon arrival –> Badge pickup. A “must have” for networking (includes Twitter handle. Didn’t include? No problem – we left some space for ya to add it.)
2) Network, network, network! –> One of the many great things about attending New Media Dayton events is the diversity of people and experience. Such creative minds!
3) Meet our sponsor –> The Hope Foundation of Greater Dayton (delivering ten tones of groceries to 700+ households in Montgomery and Greene counties every month, 100% by volunteers.)
4) Say cheese! –> Julie Walling from Walling Photography does a fabulous job capturing our events. Mix it up a little and grab your friends, colleagues and new entrepreneurial acquaintances for a digital memory.
5) Snack, please! –> Enjoy the coffee and donuts provided by our long time sponsor and supporter, Tim Horton’s.
6) Now what? –> April Mescher of ZipSetGo and co-host of the world’s largest travel Twitter chat, Traveler’s Night In (#TNI) will moderate, provide opening/closing comments, announcements and Twitter reminders.
7) 3, 2, 1….action! –> Bob McCarthy, CEO of ServiceWeb Systems will present and engage us with mobile apps and provide information on whether an app should be in your future business strategy.
8) E & T –> Engage & Tweet! So much will be learned and shared during our short time together.
9) Parting is such sweet sorrow –> But not really! ‘Cause we’re connected on Twitter! If you aren’t already, follow us @NewMediaDayton for all the latest and greatest. If you want to be part of the “in” crowd (and who doesn’t, really), text NMDayton to 90210 and you’ll instantly become part of the ICOG (inner circle of goodness).
Two meeting tips from the NMD board: 1) Network & engage and 2) document two (2) take aways you can put into action upon leaving. Have fun and don’t forget to exchange contact information. QR Codes on a business code or a text code with your name as a keyword are great ways to display your digital savviness 🙂
