What an amazing group we had in attendance at the San Francisco Webgrrls meeting last week. The meeting was held at the Art Institute of California - San Francisco. The atmosphere was warm and comfortable and the sprit was exciting and friendly. Everyone was meeting, greeting and making connections... and anticipating winning the raffle prize.
I kicked off the activities by welcoming everyone and setting the tone. John Lynch & Kirsten McLoud, representing The Creative Group, our sponsor for the event, took a few minutes to highlight their services and invite everyone to imbibe in and enjoy the scrumptious fruit and cheese they provided...and Jon Ruiz of the Art Institute said a few words about the Art Institute of California - San Francisco.
Then the introductions started... We went around the room introducing ourselves to each other and each person took the opportunity to tell everyone who they were, what they do, what they need and what they can offer.
After the formal introductions, Dana Sheiki Holeslami, won the ticket to the BizTechDay Conference and then we broke out into informal networking. That is where the connections were really happening...it was almost electric. We all stayed long past our scheduled time, conducting business and having a lot of fun!
The diversity of the group and the depth of experience and talent made for a very interesting and productive evening.
Thank you to all who attended. We hope to organize a Holiday Celebration in December. Stay tuned for more details about that event!
