*What are the “Teams of Six”?

Many people comment that networking events can be kind of a free-for-all with limited opportunity to make real connections.  The Texas Green Network’s Teams-of-Six give attendees an opportunity to make 5 new friends and real connections in a stimulating and fun environment.

When you arrive, you will find sign-in sheets with only six blanks on each.  Look for names you do not know, sign in and sit down right away with your new team.  The event activities will be a surprise but don’t be surprised to make a few new business colleagues. 

Your passion for your business and for the issues important to you comes out when working in one of our Teams-of-Six.   Our common passion is one reason why great connections are made at the Texas Green Network.
