Hello PAGDIGers. This month we’ll be starting to structure our meetings a little differently. Every other month, starting this month, we will hold presentations on various subjects of interest to the local game community, or at least until we run out of presentations to present ;D. The Art Institute of Portland has graciously offered a conference room for us to use for these presentations. Thank you, AI! Next month will be back to pizza and beer, etc.
The meeting will be on Thu., 5/28 at 7pm
The school’s address is 1122 NW Davis St. in the Pearl District, kitty-corner from the new Deschutes Brewery.
The month’s presenter will be Corvus Elrod on Networking, a subject that is useful to us all. A short blurb :
Networking can be very intimidating whether you’re trying to break into an industry, or expand your connections within your field. It’s easy to find concrete tips on how to network but how, and when, do you start preparing to do it?
Corvus Elrod, semionaut and narrative design consultant with Zakelro! A Story Studio, will share proven techniques for ensuring you’re ready to be an important part of your professional community. By breaking the process down into three easy steps–Story, Play, and Community–Corvus shows how to take charge of your networking experience and that it’s not “Who You Know” that’s important, but “Who Knows You.”
The meeting will be held on the 2nd floor in the Open Space. From the front door, take the elevator to the 2nd floor. There will be signage leading to the space.
There will be pizza provided!
Hope to see you all there!
