Sneak Peek: Networking Fun in the Sun

This week's sneak peek is a nod to sunny skies and beautiful weather and our need to get out of the office to enjoy it.  

In fact, it's such a popular activity that there are dozens of events for every skill, location, and budget.  In case you haven't guessed, I'm talking about golf.

When it comes to old-school networking, nothing beats an afternoon on the links.

Sneak Peek: Looking at June

Before I get to this week's sneak peek, I want to mention an event from New England College called Connect The Dots: Mental Health & the Opioid Crisis on Tuesday, May 30th from 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM at the Manchester Health Department 1528 Elm Street, Manchester. https://www.eventbrite.com/e/connect-the-dots-mental-health-the-opioid-crisis-an-interactive-panel-tickets-34477406852

When I was at the Exit Planning Exchange event the other day, Kyle York from Dyn said something that scared me. He was talking about a recent conversation he had with Dean Kamen and recalled that Kamen said the biggest challenge Manchester faces in attracting new business and new residents is the drug crisis.

More Sources Mean More Events!

Thanks to reader input I've added 8 new event sources and the Queen City Buzz Events Calendar has gone from active to explosive!

As much as I love the idea of finding more opportunities to network, a busy calendar can make it easy to miss something, so I'm going to point out a couple interesting events that are coming up in the next few weeks.

Highland Forwarding will be hosting a free seminar from the US Department of Commerce Bureau of Industry and Security on Export Compliance on Tuesday, May 23rd from 9:00 AM - 2:00 PM in their office at 6A Kitty Hawk Landing, #200, Londonderry, NH.

It's Clydesdale Camera Day!

Next Saturday, April 1st is Clydesdale Camera Day at the Anheuser-Busch plant in Merrimack. (http://www.newhampshire.com/section/newhampshire04#/event/6086781-clydesdale-camera-day?location=03301-concord§ions=all&date=today)

I know what you're thinking. The events calendar is already full of business activities, why is she wasting space with pretty horses?

The short version is that I was doing my weekly rounds of the local events calendars the other day and when I came across Camera Day with the Clydesdales I thought this was genius. You could even say that it's elite brand management.

I mean what is more iconic than a Clydesdale?

Budweiser makes beer which is, of course, a product designed for adults. But their brand transcends the adult only demographic. It has a rich history and the images they present to the public are cuddly and family friendly. (Anyone remember the Budweiser frogs?)
