CoBE Fall 2018 Events
CoBE Speed Networking Event
November 2, 2018
On November 2nd, the Hawaiʻi Island Chamber of Commerce partnered with CoBE to host a speed-networking event featuring some of the most successful business professionals in the Hilo community. During the event, 15 students were given the opportunity to network 1-on-1 with business professionals from HPM Building Supply, Hawaiʻi Tribune-Herald, Edward Jones, Bank of Hawaiʻi, UH Foundation and more. Students got to practice their networking skills while professionals offered pointers on how to improve their elevator pitches, how to present themselves more professionally, and provided opportunities for those looking to get involved in the business community. We received overwhelmingly positive feedback from students who said speed-networking with the Hawaiʻi Island Chamber of Commerce provided them with great practice on how to network in a genuine and effective way.
