Networking on the Water: October’s BPN Mixer Recap

High energy resonated amongst the crowd of the latest Black Professionals Network Mixer, held at the Wharf Fort Lauderdale this past Thursday, October 21st. Blaring hip hop and popular beats along with the sight of the sun setting on the ocean served as the backdrop for event attendees.

Groups of friends, colleagues, couples, and individuals alike came together with the sole purpose to make new connections and collectively elevate as a community. With a wide variety of professionals ranging from fashion to medicine to tech, the opportunities to connect and expand are limitless within the network.

Members were challenged to push themselves socially during the icebreaker hour, going up to someone new and exchanging views on personal questions. Sharing interpersonal reflective goals and ideals like what they want to be remembered allowed for a valuable and intimate exercise. Nobody stands alone for long at any BPN event, as the amicable environment encourages maximum social and professional value. Building your referral network, potential client pool, and increased exposure for job opportunities are all at the heart of BPN’s networking events and aims as an organization.
