Checklist for Shaking Hands with Handshake 2.0

Shake Hands with Handshake 2.0 I can't wait!

I am so looking forward to "Shake Hands with Handshake 2.0," a networking mixer at Bull & Bones Brewhaus and Grill, Blacksburg, Virginia, Tuesday, May 4, 2010 at 5:30 PM.

I'm getting ready.  Here's my to-do list.

  • Dress for a Handshake 1.0 photo.
  • Bring business cards and quarter-sheet flyers to easily stick into a pocket or pocketbook. (Please feel free to bring yours, too.)
  • Bring name tags.  "It's still who you know," you know!
  • Bring bold, black markers so we can write – and read! - each other's names on our name tags.
  • Bring beverage tickets for the first 50 people to pose for Handshake 1.0s.
  • Be one of the first 10 to arrive to win handcrafted soap from Capricorn Soap Company!

Not on my to-do list:

  • Prepare a company pitch and presentation.  At this networking event, no interruptions. Let's just talk!
  • Prepare a PowerPoint presentation.  Ah, since I am the organizer, we don't have to have one.  I'm not alone in not being a fan of slide presentations.
  • Bring a fish bowl for business cards for a drawing for a prize. Yes, but we'd have to interrupt the flow of conversation to award the prize.  So, no, not this time.  Let's just talk.

You're invited to shake hands – pose for a Handshake 1.0 – and talk!
