Derived from the concept of "Speed Dating," this interactive and engaging experience provides students with opportunities to apply what they have learned from networking training. In short intervals with volunteer members, students will practice their personal elevator pitches, exchange business cards, and network – all before the buzzer signals the next move.
OppNet hosts several Speed Networking events on weekdays for our Fellows program each year in the spring and fall.
Please see below for typical Speed Networking requirements and details:
- Duration per workshop: 90 minutes (typically from 6:00 – 7:30pm on a weekday)
- Number of students per session: 100 to 140 high school students
- Number of volunteers per session: approximately 50 volunteers
