Business to Business Networking

We gather to exchange thoughts, ideas, and enjoy great food. Some events include a topic or speaker, but the mission of each date is the same. Connect, reconnect, & network with local business professionals and entrepreneurs. There is no pressure to sell or buy.

Build meaningful relationships.

There are no memberships or fees to join our networking dates. We are a “show up” kind of event with fun discussions and good conversation. Bring yourself, bring a friend, and grab a few business cards to make great mid-Shore connections!

About Networking in Talbot

Networking in Talbot started as a collaboration between Discover Easton, The Talbot County Chamber of Commerce, and What’s Up Media. Each organization recognized the need for professional growth in our community and a need for regularly scheduled networking in the Easton area. What’s Up For Lunch was created and held at the Washington Street Pub in the spring of 2019. It was an immediate success! We then chose to designate the last meeting of the month as an Evening Business Mixer for a networking opportunity that was after regular business hours. Our current roster of events consists of two or three networking lunches and one evening mixer each month. Every networking event has something new to offer, but what links them is the desire to keep things simple and easy so our guests can get the most out of their time with their peers.

Expectations and Tips for Success

1)  There is no pressure to sell or buy.
In fact, we encourage you NOT to sell during the events. Introduce yourself, get to know our other guests, and grab a cup of coffee later in the week to strengthen your new connect. You’re investment in that relationship is a stronger selling point than delivering your pitch over and over.

2) You’ll never have to pay to attend.
There is no membership or obligation when you attend our meetings. Our venues offer great eats and specials to purchase if you’d like a bite while you socialize. We encourage you to RSVP so we can get a headcount, but walk-ins are always welcome.

3) We are open to all business-minded professionals.
We meet folks from all walks of life and the topics we discuss translate to professional and personal life goals. Our meetings will help you meet new business collaborators and can help guide your career pathways.

4) Expect a limited agenda.
Feel free to arrive as you are and when you can. Our morning and evening mixers do not have set agendas so you have all the time to talk and connect. Our lunch meetings include a brief 15-20 minute topic or round-table to be announced each week.

5) Friends and business cards invited.
Our philosophy is the more, the merrier. Your friends are always welcome to attend and so are their friends. Our only suggestion is to bring a bunch of business cards and maybe a few bucks for drinks and eats. If you’re nervous about not knowing anyone, don’t sweat it. This is a welcoming bunch and you’ll leave with new connections and friends for future events. Flyers and brochures are welcome to attend too, but there may not be areas to set out those materials. We suggest saving that for other groups.
