I’m a guy that likes to “cut to the chase”, if ever we meet and you have an agenda, feel free to hit me with it. That’s the reason I’m liking the idea of SpeedPitches, a new service that matches busy business owners with local vendors.

I’ve seen this type of thing work well – recently at a Frost & Sullivan event in Phoenix – and often helps both sides quickly determine if there’s a connection worth pursuing.

The first SpeedPitches event takes place May 18th in London and focuses on SEO/SEM.

SpeedPitches is the brainchild of Denise Russell and Chris Ridings. From the forthcoming press release…

“People have applied the speed dating approach to business before”, said SpeedPitches’ Chris Ridings, author of several SEO Papers and founder of popular SEO Forums, “but these events have only had the aim of introducing local business people on the speculative basis that they might be useful to each other in the future. We feel that the concept is far more effective when there is a specific business goal that both parties have in mind”.

Best of luck Chris!
