A couple weekends ago, I helped kick off the Kitchener Waterloo MS Walk. I piped along the start of the route, from inside Waterloo’s Resurrection High School to the corner of University Avenue and Resurrection Drive.
Social media was to thank for this gig. Recently, Emily introduced me to the Twitter network #WRTalk, which is a group of local, Waterloo Region businesses and professionals that meet on Twitter every Wednesday at 7:30 pm. I quickly gathered that this “networking thing” is to gain new business contacts and promote yourself. That’s definitely what it’s done for me as this is how the organizers of the MS Walk heard about me.
If you’re around tonight, I hope you can join the conversation on Twitter, #WRTalk. I’ll be there, along with some great local businesses.
