The objective is to give each member an opportunity to continually hone their networking skills, meet their peers from various disciplines, share job leads, ideas, and develop networking opportunities.
As always, this is a great opportunity to network, practice your "elevator" speech with fellow FENG members.

Practicing your 90-second announcement in the comfort of your own home is a good thing to do, but it is hardly enough. The missing element is a live audience. The additional benefit is that the live audience you will encounter at a meeting of The FENG will also be a friendly audience so you can improve this important tool.

Please bring:

Al Porto – “Blockchain” - Bethlehem Lutheran Church – Ridgewood, NJ
This is an interactive discussion as to how blockchain will be transformative to all industries. Blockchain is a method for financially securing transactions without the use of a bank by using an independent, distributed and secured database. Not since the internet has revolutionized the way we globally operate some may question whether blockchain has the potential to do the same. However, blockchain technologies are causing a paradigm shift across the globe. The first ever blockchain technology solution, Bitcoin, was released in 2009 by a still unknown author Satoshi Nakamoto. Since then the value of a single Bitcoin currency has exceeded $19,000. And multiple competing solutions have come to market. Come learn about the way blockchain could transform your perspective of business.
This session is a must attend by all business and technology individuals interested in staying ahead of critical trends.:

Agenda

BREAKFAST MEETING: MONMOUTH/OCEAN Chapter in Freehold, NJ

- For the first 15 minutes, get your coffee and talk freely among yourselves.

- At 8:45, General announcements. If anyone has something they want to share with the group. Then, everyone will have a chance to say their elevator pitch (no more than 30 seconds, please).
Then we’ll split the group into sub-groups of no more than 10 people with a facilitator for each group. Depending on the number of attendees, we may ask someone to run a group. The group splits will be based on mutual interest: financial services, consulting, manufacturing, accounting, etc..

- Within each sub-group, everyone will have a chance to talk about his/her issues and how the group can help, job search problems/opportunities, etc. Come prepared – if you want us to critique your resume or networking document, bring enough copies to distribute. Know what you want to achieve in the time we give you. I expect everyone will have the floor for about 5-7 minutes depending on attendance.

- Everyone can stay as long as they want, but the leader will make sure everyone has an equal chance to talk based on the 10:30 break.

I will update the attendance list for everyone who shows up. It will be available on the website for about a month.

PLEASE BRING: a name-tag, business cards, and copies of your marketing material.

DRESS: informal (jeans are fine)

Please note this is just a few blocks down the street from CentraState Hospital.

COST: This is an informal meeting. We will ask everyone to buy their own coffee and snack and join us at the biggest table we can find.

We look forward to seeing you.
