On Campus: Harper Networking Event Targets Young Professionals

Harper College this week will offer local young professionals a networking event headlined by an image consultant and a networking specialist. Registration is available online.

Image consultant Tamika Martell-Price already has dished out advice to viewers of The Rachael Ray Show, NBC 5 and WCIU's "You & Me This Morning."

This week, she'll be in town to work her magic on local young professionals as she helps headline a first-ever Harper College networking event.

The inaugural event, aimed at bringing together young professionals in the Northwest suburbs, runs from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, February 22 in the Wojcik Conference Center on the College's main campus, 1200 W. Algonquin Road in Palatine.

“We know this area is full of young professionals doing great work," says Dane Walkington of Harper's Educational Foundation. "This event offers a chance for them to meet each other and form some beneficial relationships."

The College's mission is to serve the community, he adds, and the networking evening will be a key first step in reaching the young professional population.

Nicole Crimaldi, a networking specialist and founder of MCG Media, Inc., will join wardrobe coach and personal stylist Tamika Martell-Price, founder of A-line Chicago: Wardrobe Coaching & Personal Shopping, as featured guest speakers.

Crimaldi’s firm specializes in search engine optimization and social media; she also runs MsCareerGirl.com, a career blog for young professional women. Martell-Price focuses on finding style options that complement budgets, body types and busy lifestyles and present a professional image.

Registration is $15; light appetizers and refreshments will be served.

The event is sponsored by BMO Harris Bank.
