Attend one of the Career & Professional Development networking events held numerous times throughout the year at the FGI Offices. Structured as an informal forum allowing member to connect "one to one" with an industry thought leader, taste maker or highly regarded expert, sharing their insights as a special guest presenter. Whether you are an entrepreneur, emerging brand or continue to build your career in a leading organization, we invite you to “CATCH THE CONVERSATION"



  • Relax in an atmosphere that is conducive to meeting others.
  • Build your connections: the more people you meet, the more referrals you are likely to get and most successful businesses are built on referrals.
  • Practice your 30 second introduction.
  • Start relationships that may lead to strategic alliances, joint ventures, and referrals.

Our 2016 CONNECT calendar of networking events will be posted shortly.
