This Week in Philadelphia (TWIP) for 12-13

As you might imagine, with the holidays upon us, there are plenty of chances to eat and drink this week.  There's also some planning going on for next year, and there are opportunities to meet Mayor Nutter and his wife.  The December Science on Tap event sounds interesting -- it's not taking place at the Academy of Natural Sciences but rather at National Mechanics.

There are 61 events happening in and around Philadelphia this week.  I've highlighted some of the interesting ones below, but you can see them all in the weekly view of the Basecamp Business Calendar.

There are not so many networking events happening next week, or the week after, so This Week in Philadelphia will take a long winter's nap and see you with the start of the New Year.


Mid-Atlantic Consultants Network -- MACN Monthly Meeting: What Are You Going to Do Differently in 2010?

Philadelphia Public Relations Association -- 2009 Gold Medal Award Luncheon

Professional Women's Roundtable -- PWR Holiday Luncheon with Lisa Nutter

Center for Environmental Policy at The Academy of Natural Sciences -- December Science on Tap

This Week in Philadelphia (TWIP) for 12-6

There are 88 events in this week's Calendar.  This includes a lot of holiday socials (26 dinner or mixer events), which are a good and relaxed time to meet people.  Even better, there are a number of "joint social" events, where two or more groups join to host a get-together.  These are great for networking, because they bring you in contact with whole new groups of people.

Remember, have your elevator speech ready for when someone asks you, "How are you doing?"  If you answer, "Fine," you are missing an opportunity!  Before you leave your house, come up with a great and engaging story that shows how active, dynamic, and wonderful your life is.  You'll  feel better having a great story to tell and, even more importantly, you will have better and more engaging conversations with the people you meet.

This Week in Philadelphia (TWIP) for 11-29

Again, technical difficulties are preventing me from creating my usual listing of events, though you can see this week's events for the Philadelphia area at the Basecamp Business Calendar.

There is also the ever-popular list of Holiday events to be considered.

This Tuesday and Wednesday in Philadelphia. 11-23-09

I was swamped last night and unable to get to my weekly post.  Now, Google Calendar gets finicky and won't let me assemble my usual weekly list.  So, once again I point you to the source of all events in the Philadelphia area -- the Basecamp Business Calendar -- this time through Pennsylvania Bio's version of the Calendar.  I've created a search to filter for those events near Philadelphia.

I hope you all have a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving!

This Week in Philadelphia (TWIP) for 10-18

Yet another week where technical difficulties prevent me from pulling together a complete This Week in Philadelphia posting.  Good thing Google's tools are free, because who would want to pay for them?

Anyway, I can point you to the source of my material:  the Basecamp Business Calendar Network.  I've set up a week-at-a-glance view for everything listed as happening in Philadelphia this week.  Usually I like to cherry-pick through to find events I think you'd find especially interesting.  This time, you can filter the list yourself by clicking on the "More Search Options" at the top right.
