Underway with Smart Transition Group

STG Presents – Networking On a Boat!

Last week, in between Fleet Week events I had the pleasure of joining Smart Transition Group and World Yacht for a night of dinner, drinks, and networking as we cruised around NY Harbor. We gathered at Pier 81 for check in and boarding, then toasted to an evening of fun, networking, and a thanks to sponsors before getting underway.

I’ve taken a few party boat and dinner boat cruises around NY Harbor, but never an event dedicated to networking, and this was my first encounter with STG. This exclusive event hosted 100 professionals from various companies around NYC from 6:30pm to 9:30pm and cruised along the Hudson and East Rivers.

Dinner, scotch tastings, champagne tastings, and cigars were provided throughout the night, and Belly Dancers from Valeria Entertainment captivated the room and encouraged everyone onto the dance floor. After their performance the DJ kept everyone dancing until we pulled back into Pier 81.

My Fleet Week Adventures in NYC

“Hosted nearly every year since 1984, Fleet Week New York is the City’s celebration of the sea services. This annual event also provides an opportunity for the citizens of New York City and the surrounding Tri-State area to meet Sailors, Marines and Coast Guardsmen, as well as witness first hand the latest capabilities of today’s Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard Team. Fleet Week includes dozens of military demonstrations and displays throughout the week, as well as public visitation of many of the participating ships.” – Fleet Week 

I had the opprotunity to participate in some pretty awesome events when I wasn’t in the office:

~ Will Smith’s Men In Black III cast party and interview with Good Morning America at the Intrepid Air and Sea Museum. When my supervisor asked for volunteers I was the first one to raise my hand and I barely slept the night before the event. I’ve been a fan of Will Smith for years and it was very cool to actually meet him in person. I was even more excited to find out that our picture is on People Magazine‘s website too! Check it out!

~ A private concert for Sailors, Marines, and Coast Guardsmen at the Beacon Theater where Kip Moore and Tim McGraw performed. Definitely one of THE BEST concerts I’ve been to in a while.
