August Social at Kenzington Burger Bar

For the final Simcoe County Young Professionals Association social of the summer, we’re heading over to Kenzington Burger Bar at 40 Dunlop Street East.  Join us on Thursday, August 21st (the 3rd Thursday of the month – see a trend??!) at 6pm for networking, drinks, and amazing food.

Drop by a little before 6pm if you’d like to eat dinner (their burgers are AMAZING!), or come a little after 6 for snacks and drinks (sorry, folks, you’ve gotta pay your own way this time!). Members and non-members are more-than-welcome to join us.

Networking Essentials with Chris Leader Recap

Despite the ridiculously cold weather on Tuesday, about a dozen folks showed up at Williams for the January 2014 SCYPA Educational event with Chris Leader. The group enjoyed a free lunch (sandwiches, wraps, veggies and deserts with coffee and tea!) and a fantastic talk by Chris Leader of Leader’s Edge Training.

Chris spoke for almost an hour on a variety of subjects from networking to prospecting to CRM systems to goal setting and everything in between. Everyone came away with a variety of tips and tricks applicable to most young professionals and small business owners.

Thanks to everyone that braved the cold weather to come out an take part in the first SCYPA Educational Event of 2014, and a huge thanks to Chris Leader to coming out and speaking to us! We’re looking forward to planning more educational events throughout 2014, so if you have a specific topic or theme you’d like to suggest, let us know in the comments below.
