Get a fresh start for fall – join us for a fun and effective round of speed networking at Edge Social Grille & Lounge on Granville!

Fall is almost upon us, which means some of our favourite things are just around the corner – cute boots, cozy knits, pumpkin spice lattes and leaves changing colour. Something else that’s fabulous about this season is that we’re all getting back into the swing of things at work, refreshed after a fun-filled summer, and ready to focus on building our networks and making new connections.

Due to the popularity of our Speed Networking events, we have decided to host another session this fall. For the first time, this event will be open to non-members as well.

Grab your business cards and come have a glass of wine while you get to know a room full of amazing, like-minded women.

Besides a great networking opportunity, your ticket includes complimentary appetizers courtesy of Edge Social Grille & Lounge and the chance to win a fabulous door prize.

As always, 100% of the proceeds of this event go directly to Dress for Success Vancouver, an amazing organization committed to helping disadvantaged women get on their feet with the clothes and tools they need to succeed in their career and life.

Event Recap

On September 23rd, we kicked off the fall networking season with a sold-out Speed Networking session at The Edge Social Grille & Lounge, which raised over $1,000 for Dress for Success Vancouver.

As professionals or job seekers, it’s sometimes a challenge to network, whether it be with the goal of expanding our professional network, learning about other career opportunities, or simply becoming more social with other like-minded women. This event brought together 45 young business women, YES! Members and non-members alike, to get to know each other in a comfortable setting while supporting Dress for Success Vancouver. This was the first time we’ve opened up our ever-popular Speed Networking event to non-members, and we’re sure glad we did!

Our guests spent a half hour mingling, sipping on cocktails and enjoying delicious appetizers (we’re still dreaming about those mac & cheese balls…) provided by Edge Social Grille & Lounge, before sitting down to network. The room was lively and loud with ladies meeting and chatting, and then getting up to switch seats every four minutes to move onto their next meeting.

As usual, we concluded the evening by doing our Member & non-member prize draws. Thank you to Adina for donating a beautiful piece of jewelry for our Member prize!

Huge thanks to the Edge Social Grille & Lounge for donating their lovely space, yummy food and 12 Vancouver City Passports to give out to some lucky guests!
