Creative Referral Network – Rogers
, , ,
  • Weekly on Fridays
  • 8:15am at Rick’s Bakery
  • 4600 W Rozell St, Rogers, AR 72756

CRN is a weekly round robin networking event, which means you will get an opportunity to address the whole room, and you will spend the rest of the meeting listening to other pitches. This is typically an easier process for the beginner networker, as you will have more passive networking time than active networking time.

Bill Shiohira and Carrie Perrier Smith facilitate this event at Ricks Bakery, and you are encouraged to purchase a drink and or donut before the meeting (though purchase is not required to attend.) The group sits at the round tables by front door, and will start around 8:30. They will choose a person at random to start the elevator pitch, and then goes around the table. There will be a mystery question, which you can answer before or after your 1 minute pitch. This is a friendly environment, and highly recommended for those getting started in networking. Open networking is encouraged after the round robin.

Rick’s Bakery is located at 4600 West Rozell Street in Rogers (just north of Lowe’s Home Improvement Center). They have wonderful pastries and cakes, but they also serve meals. They even have an amazing selection of gift items (licensed Razorback merchandise too).

Since 2002, Creative Referral Network is a grassroots group, free and open to anyone. Bring your friends.

Expect 15-25 people to attend with you. You will have the opportunity to pass a stack of your business cards around when you speak.
