Last night I attended the first networking event sponsored by Boom networking, a Jamaican-based party/learning/teaching group of young(er) professionals.

The results? Spectacular.

In a recent issue of Framework’s OnePage Digest I had mentioned that:

Boom Networking (fete): If there is such a thing as a business fete, then this is IT. Their newsletter explains everything you need to know about the upcoming “La Investa Fiesta” which I have heard rave reviews about, but have not been able to schedule. If you go, bid on some drinks for me in the “Alcohol Exchange!”

Now, I can safely say that Boom has brought another part of their mission successfully into focus — sharing ideas and networking — in the form of last night’s ScotiaBank sponsored event:

Welcome to Boom Business! We have partnered with ScotiaWealth to bring you cutting-edge workshops and seminars to improve your life. Based on your feedback when you registered, our first topic is:

“Seeing Around the Corner—Exploring Untapped Opportunities”

Wednesday 31st January 2007
at 6:00pm
Talk of the Town, Jamaica Pegasus

This session will feature discussions with Patrick Casserly, Indi Couch and André Hylton as they S.H.A.R.E. how the took advantage of uncommon opportunities in their businesses.

Then, André Bello will share some Global Trends you should be aware of, and give you a new framework for Creative Thinking.

ImportantSpace is limited! Confirm your attendance by calling Dionne Blackwood at 932-0543.

It was brilliantly done, from the excellent speakers, wonderful presentation, tasty finger-food and high quality wine tasting. A hit on several levels.

I consider myself lucky to be able to attend the first of what I hope will be a long series of events.

And, I can’t wait to get to the next party!
