Managers and executives are busier than ever, and networking can sometimes feel like an added task on your calendar. However, finding the right networking opportunities serves an important role in your career and for the growth of your business. When you are a leader, it can be difficult to find a mentor or someone to brainstorm ideas with. A challenge many leaders face is finding others with shared experiences that can provide professional and career insight. Collaborating with peers connects you with individuals who share similar responsibilities and can offer advice or guidance. Additionally, making connections creates opportunities to give back to the industry, to mentor and to support fellow leaders.
Tech on Tap provides technology leaders with the right networking opportunity. Managers, Directors, and Executives are invited to collaborate with and learn from peers in a variety of industries. It is also an opportunity for leaders to further build their personal brand. ESP IT is hosting our 2018 Tech on Tap kickoff event on May 17th at a local brewery. We have a facilitator on tap (to be announced soon) as well as delicious beer to boot. This is a no vendor, no fee event and while there is no cost, we’d like you to invest your time and share your experience for a night of networking, learning, and fun. For more information on the event, please reach out to ESP’s VP of Client Services, Andrew Knutson, at Andrew.firstname.lastname@example.org.
