One of the services we provide here at Roundpeg is the IndyBiz calendar. We try hard to include business networking events happening in and around the greater Indianapolis area. We solicit events on a variety of social media platforms and get a wide range of submissions.
As I was catching up on my emails this morning, I came across an event submission. At first glance, I did not recognize the organization or location. When I looked more closely, I realized we had received information for a networking event planned for January of 2010 happening in London.
A few of you may realize that there is a London in not only Indiana but also Ohio and Kentucky. This particular event is happening in THE London (as in England). So, while “the world is getting smaller” is an easy catch phrase to throw around, here at Roundpeg that phrase rang true to us this morning.
But if you are going to be in London, check it out, it sounds like fun
Organization: NFI Networking :Date/Time: Thursday 28th January, 2010. 18:00-21:00
Contact Name: NFI Networking
Location: The Woodstore Bar and Grill, North Road, London, N7 9EF
Web Link for More Info: http://nfinetworking.com
Event Description: This is a networking organization for business people that want to selflessly help other business people, to buy services and recommend the services of other people. It’s about being helpful, not the hard sell. It’s about back-scratching, offering selfless advice and doing favors. It’s about business karma.
It’s not a place where you simply sell your services. It’s about helping people. It’s also about meeting a diverse group of business people, so you are also requested to bring along a representative from another industry not on the NFI list.
Certain groups of people are NFI – Not Flipping Invited – not necessarily because they are unhelpful, but generally because there’s a saturation of them at networking events. After the event, you are asked to post a comment to the NFI Networking blog or LinkedIn group about the selfless advice, help and sales leads that you offered another person – to prove that you were helpful.
Your help should also be validated by the person to whom you tried to help, whether or not the help proves fruitful or not.
We can answer any questions you have at Roundpeg, an Indianapolis web design company.
