Having gone to many networking groups, I have an answer to your question… “Which is better, paid or free networking events?”. My answer is NEITHER! What matters is leadership and structure. Paid for or free, Chamber driven or independent… what matters is who is running it and what rules they have set, and expectations explained. What you get out of it is up to you!
