What comes to mind when you think of networking? Is it a chore that you have to do in order to grow your business? Or is it a fun get together with friends around drinks, food, and interesting non-network-related discussion? If you’re hoping for the latter, you should check out Green Drinks.
In their own words, Green Drinks is a “series of events focused on sustainability, green initiatives, and learning opportunities.” It’s a place where people can meet people and discuss topics that are relevant to today. Each month, there are over five hundred Green Drinks events taking place all over the world. That’s a lot of idea-sharing.
A Green Drinks evening goes like this: the first half hour is reserved for introduction and mingling. Then there is a featured speaker who will share a few thoughts on important topics like environmental and social concern. Then, afterwards, there is a lengthy “Q and A” section followed by more networking into the night.
Next week, on Wednesday March 14th from 6 P.M. to 7:30 P.M., Hussein is going to be speaking at Portland’s own Green Drinks branch about giving back with purpose. We’ve been a part of this incredible movement for a while now and we’re honored to be invited to give something back to a group of people that has given us so much.
While the March Green Drinks event is already full, make sure to check their website for updates and for the schedule of upcoming ones. Mark your calendar for the next one on April 11th!
