Network Over 40: Atlanta exists at the intersection of friendship and business. We understand that we live in a connection economy and the foundation to success in career and personal life hinges on genuine relationships with real people. We are about mixing business and pleasure, throwing out the conventional wisdom that says you have to change who you are to ‘be professional’. Instead, we encourage you to be real, to have fun, and to cultivate authentic and meaningful relationships around social activities.   It’s not just about meeting people, it’s about knowing people. Fortunately, there are a lot of great people for you to get to know at our events, ranging from tables for ten to several hundred person occasions. Learn More Don’t believe us? Check out what Inc.

Atlanta Director

There are a few things that I know as absolute truth and one of them is that people always want to do business with others that they like and trust. Throughout my professional career, I have always found that referrals and networking with like-minded individuals are the best ways to connect with new clients and establish long-term relationships.

When I first starting attending Network Over 40 events, from the beginning I was very comfortable with the professional atmosphere, eclectic group of attendees and the attractiveness of the venues. I also appreciated the ‘free range’ form of networking which made feel as though there was no agenda or structure that would dictate how and who I may interact with. This was quite a change from most networking groups I had attended before. As a seasoned professional with over 20 years of experience working with both large and small enterprises, while at times running my own business, I felt right at home with the individuals I met from event to event.

Over time, I grew to anticipate the next month’s event because a new venue always kept everything fresh and new attendees to meet always provided additional opportunities to cultivate a different relationship.

That’s why I’m so excited about having this opportunity to be the Director of the Network Over 40 group. I not only have the chance to be a part of something I believe delivers a great of value to attendees, but I also have the opportunity to make it better. I look to forward to personally welcoming you at our next event and don’t hesitate to bring a friend or colleague. You won’t be disappointed.
