Speed Friending

Heard of speed dating? Thought that the concept would work to meet friends too? Well, then meet the GSA Speed Friending event! A chance to network, make friends and meet new people in a structured way that breaks down those conversational barriers. Each table will be given a conversation starter card and seven minutes to chat, at the end of each time block a bell will sound and you will head to the next table to meet someone new. Don’t worry if this sounds out of your comfort zone, speed friending is designed to prevent those awkward silences and the GSA will be on hand to keep the process moving.
