To Do/Instructions

Now that you’ve attended your first networking event, you are to write a blog post about the virtual event you attended. You should let the reader know the following information:

• the name of the event, the host for the event

• Type of event: panel, networking get-together, presentation or tutorial, etc.

• Topics covered

• Was it interactive–was there a Q & A or breakout rooms, etc. Did you get to connect with attendees? Where they many attendees?

• What you learned & was there a follow-up email after the event from the hosts

• Your take/review of the event

• Research one company or speaker or topic mentioned in the event and add that info to your post.

• As per our blog guidelines, images should accompany your post

Here’s a past student’s review of a One Club Event. This one was in-person but can still be used as a model.

• Connect with one speaker or attended via LinkedIn after the event
