I have been blogging at Earthlingorgeous for 7 years but been writing online when blogging was not even a word.
While I attend events to mingle with the people I interact online in person, I also attend events to broaden my network and reach out to more potential readers and clients.
When I was invited to attend the Iron Sharpens Iron Mixer party last week of August 2014, I did not hesitate to accept the invitation. While I have met a lot of local PR agencies, digital marketers, bloggers, readers and the like, I want to expand my network some more by looking into other social groups I have not paying much attention to.
When I looked at the poster they sent me I saw some individuals I already know in person so I decided to go.
ISI’s member demographic consists of mostly 20-50 year old corporate executives, artists, decision makers, expatriates and community attaches. These locals and internationals generally live in or work in Manila.
With the background check I did, I found out they are actually groups and individuals who help make the Philippine economy survive and thrive because they bring opportunities and business to the country. Contributing to making the Philippines the rising business haven in Asia.
Fortunately I had a pleasant time at the event meeting a lot of inspiring and enthusiastic people I would want to work with.
The event was held at A-Space in Makati a place full of potential and of great use for startups and SME who just need a small working space for meetings or events from time to time.
Here’s what transpired at the event in photos. So much happened at the event I can’t even put into words. (Pics grabbed from ISI)
A special thanks to Diego Ramos, Ari Bancale, Bryan Gallinger, Camille Escudero, Tom Gotuaco, Brian Tenorio, Olay Rullan, Doreen, Jana, people from Taclob, owners of BamboomPh, Shinagawa, Bambike, and Scott, Raisa for making my first ISI Networking Mixer event a pleasant one. Looking forward to seeing you all again soon.
Stay gorgeous everyone!
