Our June Speaker
Reza Varzidehkar aka
On June 16, I had the honor of hosting Reza Varzidehkar aka "Reza Vee" for an incredibly engaging and interactive Live Q&A.
Reza is a start-up founder, 3rd generation entrepreneur and self-professed adventurer. He joins the Empowering Perspectives community this month to tell us all about the power of social capital.
In the Fall of 2019, mere months before the Corona virus struck, Reza decided he would attend 100 Networking events in 100 Days. Why? Initially, it was an experiment in market research for a new product. He wanted to get his ideas in front of people and ask them what they thought. No sales pitch, no hidden agenda.
Equipped only with great curiosity and an excitement to see what the networking experiment would reveal, Reza identified 100 events completely unrelated to his profession and signed up to attend. In the process, he collected more than 1000 business cards and contacts AND...more importantly, an in-depth understanding of how to establish and expand his social capital.
In Reza's words: "My superpower is my ability to draw attention and connect in a meaningful way through authenticity. The human aspect of business is often neglected as it is hard to explain with numbers. I assure you, most magic happens where numbers and charts don't have an explanation for it."
