This month, we're testing out a new networking tool that allows for 1-on-1 video chats in a speed-networking setup. Many other chambers are having success with this tool!

During this event, you will be connected to 7 individuals for 1-on-1 video networking. Each conversation will last 6 minutes and there will be a 30 second break in between each. We will start and end the session with a message from the Chamber.

A few things to keep in mind as we test this tool together:
--How to Use Blitzr info: https://blitzr.com/howtoblitz
--You cannot join with a phone or tablet, you must join with a desktop computer.
--Update your Blitzr profile with some info that will be useful to someone having a conversation with you - company and job title, relevant links, what you're looking to get from the event or connection, etc.
--To help you get placed into 1-on-1 video chats that are the most beneficial to you, mark any participants GREEN if you're especially interested in meeting them and mark any participants RED if you're not interested in meeting them.
--After the event, you can leave messages in the Blitzr site for people that you connected with.

Looking forward to trying this new tool with you!
