The FENG Charleston, SC Chapter

Next Meeting

When:

08/07/2019 – 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM (Reserve a spot at this event)

Where:

Crowne Plaza
4831 Tanger Outlet Boulevard, Plantation Board Room
North Charleston, SC 29418

Agenda:

This is a great opportunity to meet new people, catch-up with old friends and discuss any issues you have on your mind.

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.

Sponsor: Tom DiLiegro, the CEO of Benefit Advisors of Charleston

Please bring:
- Name Badge
- Personal Contact cards
- Resumes
- Your 90-second elevator speech

Attire: business casual
