eSAX Is Changing the Face of Networking Events.. This Is How!

When an individual typically thinks of a networking event, it’s not always in a positive light. When it comes to social interaction, many people have the tendency to crawl into their shell. This behavior could be explained by having a fear of rejection or not knowing exactly who could be your best connection. The idea of awkwardly approaching other professionals can prompt many to send off unnerving vibes during a potential business conversation. This, recurring occurrence, unfortunately, may create many uncomfortable encounters throughout the course of an event. These instances may be especially true for a new entrepreneur trying to network a startup business. However, when it comes to eSAX, it’s not really a networking event at all; but rather, a gathering to celebrate small businesses in Ottawa.


Whether you arrive in style via East Coast Limos private 18-person party bus with an endless flow of bubbly, or by free fare courtesy of eSAX and OC Transpo (with purchase of an eSAX networking event ticket), eSAX always finds a way to get you to the party. It’s not only the professional photographer taking your photo beside an 8-foot tall logo illuminated glow column in front of a media wall that makes you feel like a celebrity, but it's also the subtle strut that you will take down their embroidered black and yellow branded carpet to enter the event. With an opportunity like this, you will be guaranteed to leave a lasting mark on the others around you. eSAX goes above and beyond to give guests a celebrity treatment while ensuring they get the opportunity to share knowledge, interact with others in their community - all while creating long-lasting relationships between businesses.


Located in the heart of Lansdowne Park, attendees are encouraged to arrive early! The upcoming event on July 6th 2016 is from 6pm to 10pm, but Jarrod Goldsmith, the founder of eSAX, tends to open the doors early for those who are keen to get a jump start. Upon arrival, participants are gifted with plenty of bonus incentives: a custom lanyard, a “swag bag”, the opportunity to leave a business card for a chance to win many of the door prizes valued at a minimum price of $200, as well as a complementary drink ticket courtesy of another sponsor Elite Accounting. Guests can also receive an eSAX signature drink –‘SAX On The Beach’ or eSAX wine while waiting for their big moment to spark up a conversation with a potential partner. Dylan Black from BOOM 99.7 will be the MC for the night and when he is not on stage, the Sax Appeal saxophone ensemble will do their part to stimulate the atmosphere for guests while they mingle and engage in friendly networking. With the continuous involvement of distinguished guest speakers at every event, eSAX helps bring a refreshing feel to all that attend.


Partakers will notice that an event like this is not a place where business cards are being thrown around like flyers; instead it’s an event where small businesses go to make long-term connections. eSAX networking events have grown over the past four years. Starting at Maxwells, with an attendance of thirty people, eSAX has grown into a massive gathering that brings over ~450 entrepreneurs quarterly. Not only will there be plenty of professionals to introduce yourself and your business, but one can also expect a high-spirited environment that encourages participation and friendly conversations. For those guests who are actively attending these periodical events, they will be the first to tell you that if you’re not at eSAX, you’re not networking!


For more information on this event, upcoming events, and to receive networking tips and advice, like and follow eSAX on Facebook, as well as Ask The Fedora on Twitter.  Jarrod Goldsmith will be live tweeting throughout the event, so make sure to use the hashtag #eSAX while you are there. You never know where you’ll find the fedora next!
