NY Business Networking! On Espresso!

Thursday, May 10th was a bevy of networking opportunities and it started off early at the New York Business Connection networking event at the New York Bar Association. I met some savvy networkers and based on the level of professionalism I definitely would attend their events again. First, appropriately, I met Beth Phillips who has her own firm consulting others on career transitions and development. Appropriate in that yes, I am looking for some new digs to hang my hat during the days. (If you hear of anything--let me know!) New York Commercial Collections, Inc. president Manny Kyriannis, New England Financial representative Gerald Silberman and KLEAR Electrical Corp's Ira Ketive were all pleasant and friendly as we worked the room. Invited by David Leffler, fellow seasoned networker Bernardo Joselevich and I laughed as I tried to get to one of the desirable croissants in as graceful way possible. David also introduced us to Hit Show Club president Eric Rock. Before heading out I had the fortune of also meeting Sun Communications Group's Paramjit Mahli who was certainly in her element as she organizes networking events for lawyers!
