In early August, a group of YEC members and invited guests gathered at a private rooftop garden in New York City for the latest YEC Connections event. YEC hosted this evening of networking, light bites and drinks in partnership with Sandler Training and YEC member company Hawke Media.

Pretty Instant photographed the attendees, many of whom were either residents of NYC or in town for Affiliate Summit East 2016. Food — provided by Bonbite — included Malaysian curry chicken empanadas, lime dusted coconut shrimp, kale caesar salad summer rolls and bacon brioche donut holes. Rosé was the drink of choice on the warm summer evening.

Some of the members in attendance included: Patrick Ambron of BrandYourself, Matthew Moisan of Moisan Legal P.C., Jenny Blake, author of “Pivot: The Only Move That Matters Is Your Next One,” Alex Friedman of Ruckus, Jared Christopherson of Hooch, Lauren Perkins of Perks Consulting, Marat Stary of GetPartnered, Mary Arnett of Ssh-oes, Chris Barrett of PRserve, and Stephen Gill of Tiller.

The city skyline and view over midtown Manhattan was the backdrop for the event, and the private setting fostered both casual and serious conversation between the incredible attendees.

Our partners at Sandler Training have hand selected a team of revenue experts across the US to work with YEC member companies. They are offering an exclusive, free sales audit and consultation for YEC members. (Redeem here.)

The team from Hawke Media is offering complimentary digital growth consultations for YEC membesr and attendees. If you’re interested in learning more about how to grow your brand online, email colin@hawkemedia.com to schedule a consultation.
