It's a big B word.
If you’ve never been to a C&C attendee Happy Hour the night before the conference, you are in for a treat.
Happy Hour is taking place at Rolling Greens 7505 Beverly Blvd, Los Angeles CA 90036 from 6 - 7:30 PM. Please bring your badge for entry or your attendee confirmation.
Not only do you get to mix, mingle, and network with fellow C&C attendees (bring those biz cards) you’ll also get your first big (head) shot. LinkedIn is providing headshot and Linkedin page optimization services.
You’ll look totally pro, before you hit the C&C circuit the next day.
Happy Hour is a great way to meet fellow attendees and begin building some very important relationships. Not sure on how to get the conversation started at the party? Here are a few tips.
1. Be open
Conferences can feel intimidating. You don't know who is going to be there, what to expect, or what you want out of it. Be open to everything! The Create + Cultivate community is one of kindness, support, and enthusiasm. You'll quickly find out that everyone is very open about where they are and what they're looking for (in life and work), and will be totally down to buddy up for the day! We have seen so many friendships blossom from the conference, so be open to whatever it may bring.
2. Go big or go home
Be bold and get outside your comfort zone—approach that person you have been dying to meet and ask them your burning questions! We want you to get the most from your C+C experience but that starts with you! Our team will be all over to answer any questions and if you see us, PLEASE introduce yourself! We love meeting our attendees and hearing all of your amazing stories!
3. Ask the good stuff
We've all been asked the same, "Where do you work?" "What do you do?" "Where do you live?" Boring questions and chances are, we're tired of answering them. Try asking your new friends something fresh and exciting. Switching up the conversation from the traditional work-related topics can really break the ice and give you ladies something real to connect with. Here are some starters:
Have you ever traveled or studied abroad?
Best new movie you've recently seen in theaters?
New artist, you're listening to?
Next vacation you're dying to take?
Podcasts you're listening to?
Books you're reading?
You're going to have a blast and we can't wait to meet you at Happy Hour. Check out our breakdown of everything else happening at the conference this weekend, it's going to be a full day of inspiration!
