The Alexandria Chamber of Commerce recently hosted a networking breakfast to help business owners and entrepreneurs meet new people in a fast, friendly way. Attendees were encouraged to bring their business cards and practice their perfect pitches. Somewhat like a game of musical chairs, attendees moved from table to table to meet people throughout the community while learning what others are doing and accomplishing around the city. Guests also enjoyed plenty of coffee and a breakfast buffet to keep their energy levels high.
The opportunity gave attendees a chance to meet others who may have different backgrounds and approaches to their businesses, but different as their approaches might be, no one need feel isolated when realizing all are working toward the common goal of helping Alexandria grow in a positive direction.
