This Week in Philadelphia (TWIP) for 12-14

Say Hello

There are a couple on interesting joint holiday socials happening this week. GPSEG's Sales and Marketing subgroup, the Philadelphia chapter of the American Marketing Association, and the Marketing Executives Networking Group (MENG) are holding a joint social on Monday. Then PAMPI, PPRA, HSMAI, ISES, NACE, and PCMA are jointly holding a Jingle Jam on Tuesday (let me tell you, these event planners know how to party).

I mention these because joint meetings are a great time to network. You have an opportunity to meet a wide cross-section of people that you might not ordinarily meet. Plus, I find there is a lot of cross-over in many of these groups, so odds are that someone you know from one organization will be able to introduce you to someone they know from another. Referrals are always the best way to meet people. A great, "Hello," as it were.

What I list here are just a fraction of the 79 other events you can find for this week on the Basecamp Business regional calendar of business events, so check it out for more.

There are a lot of events this week, but almost none next week, so This Week in Philadelphia will take a holiday break. Enjoy yourselves, and keep safe.
