Automation Alley’s July Events

The Art of Networking: Online Networking

July 10 @ Automation Alley Headquarters

We all have numerous networking opportunities each week, personally meeting with colleagues, associates and potential clients. But the Internet presents an alternative method of meeting people and offers the means to filter these prospects in ways that are not possible in person. We can virtually “meet” people with similar interests and goals through the Web.

Keith Zendler, founder of the online social networking platform PeopleMovers, will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of “meeting” in cyberspace.

Discover the “D” and Network on the Riverfront
July 18 @ Miller Canfield, Detroit

Discover the beauty of the Detroit RiverWalk while connecting with other Automation Alley members!

Members will meet at Miller Canfield, where they’ll be assigned to teams. Each team will receive a map and clues, then head to the Detroit RiverWalk for a photo scavenger hunt! Clues will lead to interesting landmarks along a 1.5-mile section of the Detroit Riverwalk, including sites in Hart Plaza, the Detroit/Wayne County Port Authority, Rivard Plaza and Milliken State Park and Harbor, the only urban state park in Michigan. Teams will either take a photo or answer a trivia question at each site. All team members who complete the challenge will be given a raffle ticket for great prizes, including tickets to a Tigers game and a brick to be inscribed and placed on the Riverwalk.
