Raffle Provided by Razzino Associates
On Tuesday evening, December 17th, MIS Network Associates (MNA), IT-Networking, the ETP Network, TENG, The Breakfast Club of NJ, Monmouth Networking, and Careers In Transition (CIT) will host a combined dinner meeting for members, alumni, friends, and guests at The Holiday Inn in Totowa, NJ and Mike Palestina will discuss body language in your campaign.
Mike Palestina is an Executive Coach and Managing Partner at People Intell Institute.
People Intell Institute is the first Paul Ekman International licensed delivery center in the US offering training on emotional awareness and truth and deception detection. At the heart of their programs is this core message:
WHEN WE NEED TO UNDERSTAND OTHERS, IT IS IMPORTANT TO KNOW WHAT THEY ARE FEELING AND THINKING.
The schedule for the dinner meeting on December 17th will be:
6:00 to 6:45 pm – Registration, "speed dating", and cash bar
6:45 to 7:15 pm - Introductions
7:15 pm - Dinner
- 8:00 pm - Presentation by Mike Palestina
The informal networking groups are so helpful in networking that we will do the "speed dating" again on December 17th before we sit down for dinner and the general introductions. Briefly, these informal "dates" consist of up to 4 people and last for 5 to 10 minutes. At the end of the 10 minutes, the groups break up and new ones are formed with different participants. Suggested dialogues for your "speed dating" encounters will be provided at the registration desk in case you are at a loss for what to say during these conversations.
There will be an opportunity to circulate up to 30 copies of your resume, personal bio, leads, or other appropriate material in a handout for each participant from the dinner.
The cost will be $45 for everyone if forwarded by mail or other to John Sampson by COB Monday, December 16th at 2 Blackfoot Cir, Wayne NJ 07470. Checks should be made out to John Sampson who can be reached by phone at 973-248-3251 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Reservations can also be made by contacting Lizanne Fiorentino at email@example.com but checks must be sent directly to John.
An initial list of attendees will be emailed to all the RSVPs, members of MNA, the ETP Network, TENG, The Breakfast Club of NJ, Monmouth Ntwkg, IT-Net, CIT and other interested parties the weekend of December 14/15 for initial review and correction. The RSVP list will facilitate networking at the December 17th event and can be used to communicate with attendees in advance or after the dinner meeting. For those attendees who are working, current work affiliation, email address, three previous companies you've worked for/consulted at, professional job interest or position availability must be included in your RSVP.
For those attendees who are in transition, three target companies should be included in your RSVP as well as the type of position you seek.
A "final" numbered RSVP list of attendees will be available along with the pre-published questions and an ID badge at the registration desk on the 17th. Your number on the final RSVP list should be part of your introduction: "I'm number x on the RSVP list …". All attendees should have their sharp, crisp, 30 second elevator speech at the ready. Too many "ahs, dees and doeses" will be cut off unceremoniously. Remember, you and your introduction will be between the rest of the attendees and dinner!
A final RSVP list of the actual attendees will be emailed to everyone who participated by
We will accept a LIMITED number of walk-ins on the 17th. Anyone who attends on the 17th and whose check has not been received by COB on the 16th will be charged $60 WITHOUT EXCEPTION. There will be NO refunds and no shows WILL be billed.
