It's that time of year where all of your friends will be begging you to vote for their panel to be selected at SXSW next year. I'm not above asking for your vote for the Super Connectors Meetup: https://panelpicker.sxsw.com/vote/118300

Super Connectors are professional business developers who understand the power of a qualified referral network and know how to make friends with ease. Their network of other professionals is typically vast and varied in that they know people in different industries and walks of life. Building and maintaining relationships is what makes Super Connectors tick, and the very nature of these types of people is that no one is ever a stranger. This meetup embodies everything that makes SXSW special for professionals who attend. VOTE UP PLEASE
