Networking: the difficult to measure, hard to maintain and time consuming part of our professional lives that you don’t get a cent for, but has the potential to impact your career in life-changing ways.
Networking is tough — it’s outside the realm of your daily routine or job description, but as any professional knows it is essential to a achieving the career goals you set. Chances are, unless you are a social media guru or the CEO of a successful company, you need to be doing more networking. The question then becomes — how to you break free from traditional means of networking to create meaningful relationships to better your career?
We can also agree that social media networking can often fall flat due to the lack of face-to-face interaction, and unless you are super outgoing it is difficult to stand out at a traditional conference. At Kinza, we strive to break these barriers and create a platform for networking that is convenient, personal and most importantly, fun!
Kinza curates events for anyone looking to expand their inner circle whether you are new to the city, tired of traditional networking, looking to meet new people, or simply crave a home cooked meal. In this unique scenario, when strangers share a table together something inexplicable occurs. The playing field is leveled and everyone’s main prerogative is to have a good time. This creates a mood where shyness is lifted and conversation can go on forever. One guest described it as this: “A Kinza dinner removes that curtain, removes that wall, that concept of a clique, and you can get along with people you have never met. Everyone starts on the same even plain. You don’t know what everybody does, there is no economic difference, and there is no judgment, there are only new people to explore and meet.”
Conversations at Kinza aren’t limited to your name and job; people discuss politics, heartbreaks, childhood memories, and everything in-between. This builds a feeling of trust and creates a unique celebration of community difficult to find anywhere else. These are the kinds of experiences that we at Kinza live for, and we hope once you try it, you’ll see why. Sign up for a Kinza dinner today and see what we’re talking about.
