This is a Paul Nazareth original : Today I hosted my first “networking while walking” or “netwalking” event and it was for me, a roaring success. I had hoped to get 8 to 12, we had about 25 even with the threat of thunderstorms. And not a drop of rain fell on us all day, until the very moment we were done the walk – a testament to the power of positive networking! A big thanks to those who came ( here’s a list so you can stay in touch with each other ) for investing your day with me. And as I mentioned, for investing your day in yourself, something I am always proud to facilitate. After all, that’s what my twitter handle “U invited U” is all about! I had some great discussions and truly learned from the those I talked to. I met some new peers who are going to help me with my work and career. I hope you did too. Thanks Nizam and tweeters for some great pictures too! We walked through the beautiful University of Toronto campus, down the floral unexpected oasis of University Avenue, popped in on the Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition and ended up for lunch at SkyDragon in Chinatown! Networking is about human connection, today many of us learned more about the human side of each other. It will allow us to engage in better business too – hope to see you at one of my events one day soon! Thanks for reading, I’ll always be walking with you dear reader. Supporting you as you seek success, Paul Nazareth

Hey Paul, Great event! Beats standing around a boardroom table with wine & cheese any day. You showed many of us hidden parts of Toronto. The slow pace in the fresh air allowed us to meet many new folks, share stories, offer suggestions and help, and of course, connect on LinkedIn later.
