Selling The FENG

Editorial by Matt Bud from the June 28, 2016 Newsletter

I need everyone’s help. No, The FENG isn’t for sale in the retailing sense. That said, it is vitally important that each us every day and in every way, make the “outside world” aware of our unique organization. I have on several occasions since the beginning of the year done a promotion to the search community. We have approximately 4,400+ registered Friends of The FENG. I always get back nice notes when I do these promotions and usually for a few weeks we see an increase in postings in our newsletter. Still, it is not enough.

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.

Agenda

Please join us at 6:30pm for networking and drinks. Dinner will start at 7:00pm. It is BYOD (Buy-Your-Own Dinner).

Chapter meetings represent a golden opportunity for members currently employed as well as those seeking employment that honestly shouldn't be missed. This is a great opportunity to meet new people, catch-up with old friends and discuss any issues you have on your mind.

About the Eastern Europe S.I.G.:
If you have a strong interest in Eastern Europe, you should join this SIG. Your interest may come from a combination of nationality, family background, working or planning to work in connection with this part of the world.

Scope:
By Eastern Europe, we include a vast group covering Central Europe (Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary), Romania, Bulgaria, Albania, the former Yugoslavia, the former Soviet Union (Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Kazakhstan, the Baltic States etc.) and Mongolia.

Purpose:
The purpose of the new SIG is not different from the other SIGs of The FENG, but with a regional focus. It is primarily to:
- Allow focused networking with people sharing the same interest,
- Promote career opportunities in connection with this region,
- Develop business in the area,
- Exchange information about this part of the world,
- Attract to The FENG more talents from Eastern Europe.

For some of us, it is also a mean to reconnect to a region, where they have family ties.

The focus is professional; however it should not let us lose sight of the fact that doing business in Eastern Europe is inseparable from friendship and culture.

- 10:00: Formal Meeting Adjourns (Continued Ad Hoc Networking Encouraged)

The primary purpose of Chapter meetings is to provide an opportunity for you to meet, network, and learn from your FENG friends. We normally break into small groups for two or three 20-to-30 minute Tabletop Networking sessions. Session begins with each person taking 60-90 seconds to introduce themselves (strict limit; great "elevator speech" practice for an initial contact with a potential networking source) covering:
- Who I am
- Where I work or worked last
- What I'm looking for
- What I need help with

The rest of Tabletop session is informal conversation focusing on your distinctive competencies, future plans, and target companies, and how FENG members can help in your search. It is especially useful for those in active search to bring resumes and business cards to hand out so your new friends can read about your background and have a record for future network contacts/opportunities.

Dress is business casual. Bring some resumes and business cards to exchange.
