Networking Sherpa and Event Emcee

Networking Sherpa and Event Emcee

November 1, 2017

Hosting a conference for a large audience? Allow Alana to serve as your event “Networking Sherpa” or emcee to help your participants make the most of their time together – before, during and after the event.


Utilizing the Coffee Lunch Coffee Networking Principles, Alana will guide participants on their Networking journeys. Whether attendees presently take an active approach to connecting with others or, conversely, shudder at the thought of having to reach out to others in a Networking capacity, she can help them traverse what may sometimes feel like daunting territory, thereby truly making possible what seemed impossible.

In the weeks and days leading up to the event, she will distribute pre-event reading materials and exercises to conference registrants to put them in the right frame of mind for Networking at the event. She will also make herself available by email to answer questions and forge connections among conference goers. Then, during the event, she will offer a series of 10 to 20 minute talks throughout the day to the full audience to include an overview of the Coffee Lunch Coffee approach, tips for connecting with others in a meaningful way and a few exercises to practice the information the participants are learning. All Networking Sherpa elements can be tailored to meet the unique needs of your organization.
