At Voray we're all about making valuable connections. You know who doesn't get to make valuable connections? Flakes, because they don't get invited back to future events. Here are some guidelines on how to not be a flake:
Who DOES that?! If something comes up, I will get in touch with Voray as soon as I know (not that anything could come before a free and incredibly curated dinner that will prove to be the best I attend all year).
If something comes up (again, we can't imagine what would…) and I must change my RVSP within a week of the event, I will do my best to send a relevant colleague or peer to take my seat.
I will arrive as close as possible to the event start time to avoid group heckling.
I will come excited to meet new people and engage with the group. I know that connections are not made by staring at a phone all night. Sorry, Siri...
I understand that all I have to do is show up, and the rest is taken care of (and how great is that!).
