Advancing Career Connections
Join PEI Connectors on Thursday, April 22, 2021, at the Delta Prince Edward Marriott for our inaugural in-person speed networking event, Advancing Career Connections (ACC), from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Virtual tours give our clients the chance to explore the length and breadth of Prince Edward Island and discover potential opportunities for investment and business activity in rural and urban PEI. Previous tours have included eastern, western, and central PEI in Prince, Queens, and Kings counties.
Virtual Six on Six
These are small, intimate meetings that bring together new immigrant business owners and established Island business owners in a virtual setting. There is no format or agenda in these meetings. Often, clients’ interests are matched with those of the established business owners invited. There is the possibility of inviting Connectors from different fields to offer well-rounded answers and balanced perspectives to the questions raised.
Power sessions are small events designed to enlighten business owners on topics that are important to the success of their business. They often involve a formal presentation and have a Q/A component at the end. These events are facilitated by leaders in their fields, many of whom are immigrant business owners who are familiar with the challenges of building a business.
Our clients get to participate in the Mega Mixer put on by the Greater Charlottetown Area Chamber of Commerce during Small Business Week. This event gives our clients the opportunity to build connections and exchange ideas that can move their businesses forward. Attendees of the mixer come from various walks of life and can offer diverse perspectives and innovative collaborations.
At our speed networking events, clients mix and mingle with business professionals and community leaders to exchange information and contacts. These serial exchanges last for a set time, about 30 seconds to 5 minutes. They provide the opportunity for clients to share their professional backgrounds and goals for their business or career. With the rotation of participants, there is the potential for connecting with several attendees of the event.
