MONDAY, APRIL 23RD @ VAE RALEIGH
SPEED DATES are thematized 30-minute one-on-ones with area smartypants who can answer your pressing professional questions! This time, we are excited to host digital communication pros from around the Triangle to answer your questions about building or revamping your online portfolio for lasting impressions! Register while space is available!
HOW IT WORKS
This is your chance to pick some smart brains in a relaxed, comfortable environment! You should come with a few questions you want to ask your guru(s) during your 30-minute meeting(s). The Speed Date registration form will give them a little background on you before you meet so you won't have to start your conversation totally from scratch.
This event will be held from 2-6 pm on Monday, April 23. You get to pick who you meet with and when (depending on availability). Pick and choose your TWO dates to suit your needs and schedule!
STEP ONE: Complete the registration form through Wufoo [CLICK HERE]. You will be asked for your contact information and a short survey of questions to help the gurus understand your needs. This event is FREE for current VAE members and $10 for non-members.
- What are the five words that BEST describe your creative work?
- What do you feel are the main challenges of your online portfolio?
- What's the main reason why you want to attend this event?
- What's one thing you're looking to leave the event knowing?
STEP TWO: Once you've completed step one we'll give you a link to an outside scheduling service called Sign Up Genius where you will choose the guru(s) and time(s) you want. Once you've done that and hit submit, you're 100% registered!
