Welcome to Chapter 2 of the SureToMeet blog…

Cliff Allen, my late husband, started this blog about productive networking and shared many articles and tips for attendees at networking events, as well as tips for the organizers of networking events — business, social and civic.

Since Cliff’s passing, my son and I have taken over the SureToMeet mission — we maintained the online event registration service for several years until we clarified our more permanent direction to keep up with changes in the industry.  In 2014 we received a patent on a “Matching system for networking at events” and have been busy researching, prototyping and implementing this system and supporting Web presence.

We’re there! We’re expanding our team, and developing robust services on the SureToMeet website for your use.

We will kick off this new chapter of the SureToMeet Blog and an expanded Web system to provide training and support for business networkers, event organizers and sponsors who also want to support the events in their industry and/or locality.

MatchUp is our new service, and we’ll be revealing more about it as it is launched.  In the meantime, we hope you will join our community to help put the final shape to this powerful tool for productive networking at business events. Please join today as either a Business Networker, or an Organizer.

For many years networking has been valuable in my business and personal life. I enjoy meeting new people and looking for opportunities to work together.

Building relationships — now called social networking — is something we all do. So, we need to make the most of each networking opportunity. That’s the goal of this blog. And, that’s why we created the SureToMeet local event calendar Web site.

I’ll be posting networking tips and techniques that I’ve seen work, as well as links to my articles on the SureToMeet site.

And, since we all hold meetings and activities, as well as help organizations promote events, I’ll be sharing tips to help you use SureToMeet to make both your public events and your private meetings and activities successful.

Remember that this is a two-way relationship. Your comments will add to our shared exploration of business and social networking.

Together, we can explore the tips, techniques, and tools each of us uses in our business, civic, and social networking.

Cliff Allen,
Founding partner of SureToMeet
