31 Days, Day 3 – First Speed (Business) Meeting

I remember my first business meeting.

I was scared, terrified even. About two years ago, I got my first job at Swiss Ecodent Clinic thanks to my addiction to Facebook. I was already known for that and they needed someone to take care of their Facebook page. Later on, I was in charge with their other social media accounts. Since I represented them online, the natural thing was to take over the offline part too. So I started going to networking events.

The first event I took part in was a Speed Business Meeting. That was extremely new to me, but it sounded a bit like the Speed Dating Meeting I’ve seen in the movies. Well, the concept was basically the same: you would pick a card from a box and look at the number and the type of activity. The number indicated at which table you will start. Regarding the activity, you could stay at one table the whole time, while others move around you (‘fixe’ in Romanian) or you’d be the one to move around (‘mobil’ in Romanian).

My card said ‘3 – fixe’, so that meant that I would be sitting at one table and the others move around me, yey – that was what I was hoping for. And the number three is my favourite and the one that’s lucky to me. Even more, red is the colour that suits me best!
