BRING A FRIEND, FREE, TO NOVEMBER’S OP.LOUNGE!

ENJOY LGBT+ NETWORKING WITH THE PEOPLE WHO INVENTED IT. BRING A FRIEND, FREE!

On Wednesday, November 14, Out Professionals welcomes you and a friend to newly fashionable NoMad for OP.LOUNGE, our roaming series of networking mixers.

Tonight’s scene? Oscar Wilde, the elaborately designed, Victorian-style bar and bistro named for the Irish poet, dramatist and wit. To gift a friend with free admission, you may pre-register the new name and e-address along with your own.

It’s important to network face-to-face. Why? Talking in person is extremely powerful:

  • 85% of jobs are filled through networking
  • 72% of people say someone’s appearance and handshake impacts their impression
  • 68% of entry-level professionals rate face-to-face networking higher than online networking
  • 41% percent of those who network would like to network more often

Come equipped with business cards and expect to meet Members and friends of Out Professionals … OP.LYNX, our dynamic women’s network … and dozens of LGBT+ up-and-comers.

OWN YOUR OWN BUSINESS? THIS NETWORKING MIXER IS FOR YOU!

OUT PROFESSIONALS INAUGURATES ‘SELF STARTERS,’ A UNIQUE SERIES OF NETWORKING MIXERS FOR PRESENT AND POTENTIAL ENTREPRENEURS AND BUSINESS OWNERS.

Perhaps you already know what it’s like to hang out your shingle and work for yourself.

Or maybe this has until now remained your dream — a dream you feel increasingly ready to act on.

In either case, this new Out Professionals series is for you.

On Wednesday, December 12, Out Professionals inaugurates Self Starters, a unique series of LGBT+ networking mixers aimed at fostering business relationships among present and potential entrepreneurs and business owners.

Self Starters is no one-shot, hard-sell affair, satisfied with promoting products or services. Instead, this new Out Professionals series is single-mindedly designed to create synergy among can-do community members — Self Starters like yourself.

Self Starters is focused on the creation of long-term relationships by fostering referrals and helping you build social capital on an ongoing basis.

As an inaugural attendee, you gain priority access to future events in this innovative networking series.

The exciting Self Starters kickoff on Monday, December 12, is limited to 100 registrants. To be among them, register without delay!

Special thanks to our sponsor and host for the evening, Emerge212. Inspired by the best in hospitality, design and technology, Emerge212 brings your business what other office space providers simply do not. Unlike co-working spaces or other shared office environments, Emerge212 elevates the officing experience at every turn, allowing your business to do what it does best. Located exclusively in New York City, we are a wholly owned subsidiary of SL Green Realty Corp and have been redefining NYC real estate with innovative spaces and design solutions since 1999. Smart design is only part of our focus: we’re providing flexible office space solutions that minimize the overhead and restrictive terms of typical office leases. What’s more, we’ve extended our offering to include Virtual Office spaces that provide a real headquarters in NYC–including mail and receptionist services–so you can do business all over the world

WHAT’S UP
From 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., purposeful networking for entrepreneurs and business owners. This is the first in a series of mixers designed for repeat visits and the fostering of relationships among peers. Please arrive on time. Open bar with light fare.
