RAF // 20 Minutes and A Beer

RAF 2MAAB

Go ahead and click it, if you’re local, you won’t want to miss out! My friend has asked me a couple times to join him at this monthly event, and I hadn’t been to one in quite a few years. I’m so glad I went this week! Not only are opportunities like this amazing for networking, they’re beyond inspiring. I’ve been to a couple of events where I stood in the middle of the room pretending I wasn’t the most awkward, uncomfortable person there, but this event was the opposite. First off, 20 minutes? Yep, I can find that kind of time. Beer? There. It’s a bunch of like minded individuals, so it’s fair game to introduce yourself to anyone with a “here’s my elevator speech” or even “hey i’m a designer, i work at xyz, what do you do?” Anyway, the real gold is the guest speaker. This week, Pete VonDerLinn, VP / Creative Director, at Partners + Napier, came to talk with us. The topic: “Reframing the ask: How bold questions lead to better work”. He opened our eyes to asking question, or looking at solutions in different forms, and I loved every minute of it. I can’t wait to start attending these events more frequently, and I’m proud of myself for stepping out of my comfort zone and introducing myself to him!

If you haven’t checked out RAF, do it! They’re doing incredible things!
