Presenting: The Marketing Networking Group

 

05/29/2019

Welcome to AMA-Toronto Marketing Networking Group, an exclusive member community where we help build meaningful connections.

 

Networking is one of the most valuable and important aspects for an effective career management. A recent AMA study shows that on average, an ineffective career management reduces lifetime earnings by 35% and results in less job satisfaction and advancement opportunity. At AMA-Toronto, we want to help you advance your career, and that´s why we have created our own Marketing Networking Group for our community.

 

Face to face meetings are essential for long term business and professional relationships. The Marketing Networking Group is an opportunity for you to connect with like-minded professionals, learn and share market knowledge, gain valuable industry insights and build camaraderie.

 

 

Join us!

 

Our members-only meetings take place once a month (every last Wednesday of the month), at a location around the city.

 

Attendance is free and refreshments are provided.

 

We share the details of the meeting through our membership list, our private LinkedIn group, and by special Invitation only.

 

 

 

 

Your network is one of the most valuable assets for advancing your career. Get started by becoming a member of the AMA.
