Speed networking: Two people sit across from one another. One person spends 3-5 minutes giving an extended elevator speech, which will give the listener a very clear picture of what the speaker does, specifically needs in the way of referrals, speaking opportunities, and introductions to other referral sources. Questions can be answered and then the roles are reversed. Then the two paired are reassigned and you repeat the process with your new partner.
