We had a great turnout at Dove Parlour for SWAY in NYC on Thursday, January, 31, 2013. It was great to see familiar faces and make new connections.
It was great to see Divya Kapasi, Founder and CEO of GoodList, working on a new start-up. It was also wonderful to see Billie Hughes, Assistant Director of Alumni Relations & Career Services at NYU, as well as NYU grad classmate Theresa Chinte, Operations & Finance Manager at The White House Project.
And now, a story of SWAY connections:
David Hessekiel, President and Founder of Cause Marketing Forum, Inc., met my former NYU colleague, Robin Deutsch Edwards, at a SWAY in NYC in May. Robin had recently made the decision to branch out as an individual consultant, and David was looking for support for his Run, Walk, Ride conferences. I learned from David, who once again came to SWAY, that he had hired Robin and their consulting relationship was working out great.
This is the exciting news we love to hear. This is what SWAY is about, getting people together so they can work together. Keep an eye out for upcoming events near you.
