ATDChi held its 3rdannual Mega-Networking Party on Thursday, August 2nd. Sponsored by TrainingPros, this year’s party featured three networking events happening across Chicagoland simultaneously.
The west suburban event was held at Granite City Brewery in Naperville. “It was a terrific opportunity to re-connect with existing ATDChi friends and make new ones in a fun and relaxed venue. One of the evening’s highlights for me with having the opportunity to meet a member in person whom I connected with earlier this year by phone,” said Camberis.
ATDChi colleagues from the northern suburbs gathered at Francesca's North in Northbrook.
The events truly demonstrated the power of networking. According to Polyakova, “I established a connection with a potential vendor, connected with another L&D analytics expert, and was fascinated by the power of networking at its best. Less than a month after the ATDChi Mega Networking Party one of the participants, Luveta Hill, started a new job that she learned about at the event – by connecting with the hiring manager also in attendance. How amazing is that?”
