On Thursday, October 18th, the Des Moines Downtown and Des Moines West Side Chambers of Commerce are hosting this month’s regional event, a Regional Breakfast from 7:30am-9:00am.
When chambers have the opportunity to host a regional event in their neighborhood, they want to show visitors what they have to offer. At this breakfast, the West Side Chamber gets to invite participants to chamber member, Terrace Hill. The Downtown Chamber gets the great honor of highlighting chamber member, The World Food Prize Foundation, and World Food Prize Week, a celebration in honor of the Prize’s founder, the late Dr. Norman E. Borgaug. David Lambert’s keynote at this regional breakfast is a part of their annual statewide dialogue, this year consisting of 14 World Food Prize Lectures. He will address the audience on “Partnerships Toward a More Well Nourish World.” In addition, the Governor and Lt. Governor are expected to also be present!
At the center of all of these outstanding pieces is the importance of the networking environment a regional breakfast offers. A regional breakfast is communicated to the 24 affiliate chambers of the Greater Des Moines Partnership, so the handshakes and conversation is also metro-wide. The expanded networking is a great chance to make additional connections, as well as being able to connect your own local chamber members to other metro members.
Because room is limited, it is advised that you register soon to save your spot, especially with a low registration cost of only $5 per person. Details and registration can be found at www.DesMoinesDowntownChamber.com.
On the topic of networking, remember that sharing events like this with others in your network is a solid way to create a positive impression. Offering to go with them is even better. See you soon!
