Please Note:

Tonight we will have 2 separate events. We will have a New Member Orientation as well as our Monthly Dinner meeting. Between 5:30-6:15 there will be a New Member Orientation. The orientation is for anyone who may be a new member or wants to learn more about the benefits of joining the Metro St. Louis PMI chapter. Registration is required as we have to prepare materials.

The second event is our monthly Dinner Meeting which will begin at 6:30 p.m. Everyone is welcome to attend. If you would like to come early you will have an opportunity to network with your peers or attend the New Member Orientation if you have signed up.

Please choose the Ticket that is appropriate for your attendance as we have to prepare both the presentation materials as well as the facility.

TUTORIAL (Optional, Designed for New Members) : 5:30 PM - 6:15 PM

Congratulations on your positive choice to consider building your PMI professional skills as a member of our Chapter! By this initiative, you’re securing access to a comprehensive network of career resources and multiple opportunities to grow your own skills and get ahead of your peers in industry. Now, the next step is to get to know one another, so we cordially invite you to join us for the Member Orientation from 5:30-6:15 p.m. This event is for any member that is new to the chapter, as well as those considering joining or current members who want to refresh their contacts and information.

The  presentation will provide an opportunity to learn more about the Global and local chapter benefits, training & PDU opportunities, scheduled membership activities and your benefits for active participation. In addition, this is a great opportunity to meet the current Board members and find out more about their Chapter vision and goals.


 

DINNER MEETING: 6:15 PM - 8:30 PM

Main Event: Networking is a life skill with unlimited possibilities but are you maximizing your potential or missing opportunities to engage effectively with others?  Welcome to NAKED NETWORKING, a bare all approach to networking smarter for business ROI.

Welcome to NAKED NETWORKING, a new way to “expose” yourself to new business (and life) possibilities.  Today’s competitive marketplace demands results and a powerful circle of influence can help you achieve your objectives.  However, it’s easy to make excuses not to network or let yourself be afraid of the vulnerability-first attitude necessary to reach your goals. NAKED NETWORKING explores this fear, how to overcome it, and how you can build and maintain professional networks to experience huge breakthroughs.

AUDIENCE TAKEAWAYS

  • 3-step networking strategy
  • Discover how to push past fear to connect with confidence
  • Learn 5 networking barriers and how to overcome them

 

Main Presenter:

Kari Mirabal, The Connection Coach, is an expert on networking strategies. Her presentations challenge audiences to leverage the power of connection to build, maintain and grow authentic business networks.  Whether you’re networking through traditional or social media channels, Kari’s connection strategies will help you shift intention into action. She empowers audiences to learn how to overcome networking fear and connect with confidence.  Kari shares networking knowledge gathered from experience as an executive recruiter and career coach.  Visit karimirabal.com for more information.
