NEOSA And Speed Networking Events This Week

I really did not go to any networking events last week due to a project and my job search. I will make up for it this week.

But you should read the update I received from a regular contributor, Toni C. She attended a LinkedIn networking event last week I listed.

Her report is under “Recent Comments” down and to the right of the blog post or as a comment to the prior week’s blog post.

I hope other readers who follow the list, such as Toni, also contribute their experiences. It helps all of us.
