Speed Networking for First-Timers: Speed Networking Your Way to Professional Contacts
Want to meet the most people possible in the shortest time at PASS Summit 2011? Then don't miss this “fast and furious” 45-minute exercise, hosted by networking expert Don Gabor. In this series of brief, one-on-one meetings with other Summit newcomers, you'll share professional backgrounds, career goals, and your “Who-do-you-want-to-meet at the Summit?” wish-list. Come with your business cards and elevator speech, and plan to make many career-boosting connections.

Can't get enough speed networking? Don will be conducting two 20-minute "Connecting in a New York Minute” networking sessions during the Welcome Reception - just listen for the announcement to join in.
