For those of you planning to do speed networking / mentoring, I have a recommendation as a past participant & as the speaker in the LinkedIn category!I did not find networking in general at the CI very effective, especially if it's something that is new to you. I found myself returning home to a stack of meaningless business cards. A better approach that I picked up from LinkedIn, is to go to Vista Prints & spend about $10-$20 ordering business cards that perhaps have your picture on them, where you work, your LinkedIn vanity URL, other contact information you wish to share & a message on the back that tells a little about you - especially if you're in the market for a new gig. Obviously you can also make your own. Happy networking!
