The Influence Factor Hosts Bay Area VIP Invite-Only Speed Networking Event

The Influence Factor is hosting its 12th Speed Networking Event February 3rd at The Ivy Bar and Kitchen and is introducing a VIP Invite-Only twist to the always sold out event.

Burlington, Canada, January 31, 2016 --( The Influence Factor is hosting its 12th Speed Networking Event February 3rd at The Ivy Bar and Kitchen and is introducing a new twist to the always sold out event. Together with hosts At My Office Canada, Mawazo, Lavella Entertainment, e=mz2, Tweedle Productions and LegalShield, Influence Factor is presenting an evening of VIP networking that is bringing together professionals from all walks of life with one thing in common: they’re all business owners or in the top levels of their companies.

Speed Networking, hosted by The Influence Factor has enjoyed popularity among Burlington and Hamilton’s best businesses since its first sold out event in 2014. During the past few months, Influence Factor has asked various companies to co-host the event in order to reach an even broader audience.

According to Sharon Ricci, President of The Influence Factor, Speed Networking was borne out of her desire for a new kind of networking event. She liked the structure of groups such as BNI and also enjoyed the open networking style of the Chamber. Her goal was to create a unique combination of the two. The result is Burlington Speed Networking, an evening participants rank highly as being both productive as well as exciting and fun.

Co-host Elizabeth Plouffe, President of At My Office Canada, says VIP Speed Networking gives her the ability to invite her very best contacts to meet each other and build their business. Plouffe added, “Being a co-host for the speed networking events not only gives me the opportunity to promote my business but to also connect my valuable clients to larger networks which will positively impact their business.”

The February 3rd VIP Speed Networking is an invite only event. The event has reached capacity already. Companies and entrepreneurs who are interested in participating or co-hosting the next VIP Invite-Only Speed Networking event are encouraged to get in touch with Sharon Ricci so she can place you on the list for upcoming dates.

The February 3rd Event will be hosted Burlington’s beautiful Ivy Bar and Kitchen and attending VIPs will have an opportunity to sample their celebrated appetizer menu.
