UPDATE : CANCELLED
This particular event has been cancelled. I’m re-thinking how to do this better. I don’t think it works for me in the current format either. Sorry for the inconvenience. Leaving it published for documentation purposes.
Date & Pricing
Saturday, 12 pm to 2 pm
Gurgaon ( conference room at one of the WeWork locations )
10 People Only
Introductions from 12pm to 1pm
Casual Chat & exchanges from 1pm to 2pm
Brief Introduction to the Concept
A bit of re-branding on the #EyesForPeople tag. As most of you are aware, that tag has been used in the past to contextualize a series of portraits that I have photographed over the last few years. I have also tried to profile people on my blog, under the #EyesForInfluencers tag. Both these lines of thought haven’t really worked out in the way I had imagined.
I’m using this new idea to re-purpose #EyesForPeople in the context that because this is going to be an INVITE ONLY event ( participants will pay a nominal fee ), the key is that each profile will be vetted by me, personally. Hence, “eyes for people”. The payment link will only be shared with those people who clear the approval process. Just because someone can pay to come for this event is not going to be enough for them to be invited.
This is mainly because I would like to maintain control over who signs up. And to prevent any painful networking mishaps, as much as possible. In any case, it’s an experiment. Let’s see how it goes!
What is it?
I’m announcing a meetup / networking / community building get together for Gurgaon / Delhi / NCR residents / professionals.
This is a controlled networking / community-building event where participants will get to introduce themselves to the room for 2-3 minutes each. Then we will open up the discussion and everyone can talk to each other, mingle with the crowd ( only 10 people + Naina & possibly an assistant ).
Please bring business cards. Exchange them with those you would like to stay in touch with.
TAKEAWAYS FOR PARTICIPANTS
- You are introduced to 09 professional / working people from Gurgaon / Delhi / NCR
- You will be introduced to Naina’s online audience by way of a profile feature on the @eyesforpeople Instagram account, including your portrait.
