Our eagerly anticipated pool party at Christina Shaw’s home (www.imwithshaw.com) was canceled due to rain, but our networking continued. Lunch in Christina’s kitchen, a thousand + laughs, lots of connecting, and awesome conversation made for an extremely pleasant afternoon. Nothing can stop us; certainly not a little rain!
Once more, members of Adrian’s Network broke the networking mold and decided that attending a baseball game would be the perfect place to strengthen our business and personal bonds. We had beautiful weather and best of all, the Mets won! Personally, I felt like a winner too, because I got to spend the evening with […]
People often tell me I’m someone who “knows everyone.” I’m flattered to hear this, of course, but it isn’t true. Not even close. Sometimes I even think this is an excuse to avoid introducing me to others, an easy escape since I know everyone and there are no more introductions or connections to make. It […]
It makes sense, right? People enjoy being social, breaking bread, sharing stories and so Adrian’s Network provides these opportunities regularly.

If you’re reading this, […]
A networking lunch at a waterfront restaurant complete with a blood-orange margarita. Sound perfect? It was. I love networking in a casual environment, where the conversation flows easily and the laughs are loud. A great lunch with Stephanie Larkin, Founder of Red Penguin Books.
You have to eat so why don’t you do it with some of your networking community and have the opportunity to share information, insights, and your subject matter expertise. Oh yeah, and have fun too! That’s exactly what some members of the Adrian’s Network community did yesterday, and what a productive and enjoyable lunch it […]
Small networking gatherings for breakfast, lunch or dinner can be an effective way to build relationships and develop leads and connections. When you meet with 4 or 6 people, the conversation flows easily, and the entire group can engage. It’s almost like having 5, one-to-one meetings, but without a vast expenditure of time. Try it. […]
On Tuesday evening, a group of fearless A’s Netters traveled to Far Rockaway for our 4th Pizza Crawl. Led by our resident pizza expert, Rob Intelisano, we enjoyed a night of networking, eating sublime pizza, indulging in a stupendous meal at the fabulous and well-recognized Rocco’s of Roc Beach, and being educated on all things […]
