The Bottom Line: Speeding to new business connections

Made popular during the down economy of the early 2000s, the business version of speed dating has become a more mainstream alternative to traditional networking. Several social networking events have been popping up nationwide, including a noon event today at the Queen Mary and a breakfast speed session on Tuesday put on by the Cerritos Regional Chamber of Commerce at the Cerritos Library.

“You go to these networking events and maybe you only meet maybe two or three people, which is great, but this way you get to meet so many people and then sift through and figure out which ones you want to continue having a relationship with,” said Donna Schilder. “It gives you so many choices right off the bat.”
