August 17 Netwalk and Potluck Picnic in High Park

BU011092I have promised many that this netwalk would happen, the BIG ONE. We have space for 100+, so please mark this event in your calendar and share! August 17, we’re going to walk and talk – about you! This isn’t a fundraiser, there is nothing to buy or sell, we won’t be walking fast so there will be NO health benefits (human pyramid above is for metaphor-purposes only). It’s about networking, it’s about enjoying summer (goodness forbid we slow down a moment) it’s about helping you get to where you want to go. Celebrating that life is good, and if it isn’t good, if you are facing challenges and feeling down – how do we make life better again, together. Sorry, no hokey stuff. No singing or hand holding ( spouses and significant others welcome though so I guess, you can hold hands ) but business cards ( or contact cards if you are a student or in between work right now ) are mandatory!! This will be the fifth netwalk I’m hosting and I’ve had great feedback from previous netwalkers…I’ve taken that consideration into account. So, a later start this year, 10am. We’ll walk for 2 hours, I’ll have some networking highparkactivities for us along the way. A new fun feature this year, an optional potluck lunch! We’re going to be a High Park in Toronto that has both parking and a subway stop. I’ll have volunteers to keep our coolers and stuff safe during the walk and we’ll return to a fun and delicious networking lunch! More details to come about exact meeting location and food logistics but for now, please mark your calendar and RSVP here. Share the event with anyone you like who could benefit from some networking, fresh contacts, fresh perspective, fresh food! TwitterJuly2014 See you Sunday August 17th for #NetwalkTO ! Paul   When: Sunday Aug 17, 2014 meet at 10am Where: High Park Ave and Spring Rd. near the parking. Who: Open to anyone looking to advance career, enrich life Cost: No cost. Noon potluck picnic lunch is optional. RSVP Here   ——— UPDATE   ——–  UPDATE   ——— So our exact meeting spot is High Park Ave and Spring Rd (just south of High Park and Bloor St. W ) . left of the parking spots. I hope to have a sign of some sort up. If you have RSVP’d I will email you with more details and my mobile phone number so you can be sure to find us. As for the picnic/potluck portion, I’ll bring extra drinks. Keep it simple (don’t stress!), remember it has to last in your cooler or car for 2 hours while we walk. If you’re coming by subway I have someone volunteering to watch our stuff while we walk so feel free to bring a cooler (and chairs if you don’t like sitting on the grass, which I don’t ). Most importantly, please be on time!!! Plan to be there for 9:45am please. We start walking at 10am sharp!! Really looking forward to it, we’ve crossed the 40 person mark attending so it is going to be a really great mix of people!! I’m starting to get “what should I bring for the picnic potluck?” emails….here are some ideas:

Store-bought is totally fine, this is not a hipster-judgement event. But go easy on the desserts.
