About the meetup

JOIN ME FOR OUR 4TH ANNUAL HOLIDAY PARTY AND COOKIE EXCHANGE! Bring 1 dozen of your favorite holiday cookies to exchange and share with others! It will be a great time to munch on some sugary treats while learning about a new way to network that ACTUALLY WORKS! Hope you can make it.

Do you hate Networking as much as most of us do? Are you also bad at it, often wondering why no one returns your calls or follows up with you after a "Networking Event"? Join us in any of our cities for "The Art of Active Networking", and let's change everything you believe about Networking!

Take a look at our site and what people say about the events here: TheArtofActiveNetworking.com

Come see why over 12,000 people have attended worldwide! Tickets are 20$ on-line on our site until 6pm the day of the event and 30$ at the door until 7:00pm. Each event typically ends about 9:30pm! You must purchase a ticket online in advance to get the 20$ pricing.

Check out this link to get your tickets for December 5th: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/the-art-of-active-networking-san-francisco-december-5-2016-tickets-20026254065

At this event you will make some amazing connections and you will learn why Networking is not about what you get, but what you give and what I call my #GIVE4. You really only need to meet one person to make your entire night worthwhile if you know what you are doing. You will have an opportunity to speak to everyone in the room, and you will absolutely meet people you might otherwise never have an opportunity to meet and you will see that's it's not what you are selling or how you sell it that matters, you will instead learn the importance of building 'know, like and trust' relationships! Finally you are then invited to join all of our groups and pages and use our FREE walls to post up what you might be looking for, all of those links are on our homepage near the ticket link.

Everything you need to know about this event is on our site. Join the pages and the groups, spread the word and also take a look at my TEDxFulton Street talk, also on our site.


Giving to and helping others will change your life. I ask you to only consider taking 4 hours out of your very busy week to do just that in the following ways:

1. Give your ideas and talents. You are one talented person and so many never get to see or benefit from your gifts.

2. Give a little money, you can pay someone’s toll, buy them a coffee behind you in line or donate to a non-profit! All of them will appreciate the effort. Go ahead, make their day.

3. Give of your time, the elderly lady down the street could use a little help in her yard since her husband passed, your local shelter or non-profit is always needing some help with volunteers. Let their small need be your good deed!

4. Give of your referrals in your network to help someone. This is the easiest thing to do ex. using social media sites to provide a great way to refer each other to new connections.

Finally, as I always say, “WE ALL STRUGGLE WITH SOMETHING” and guess what? It’s not easy to ask for help. But it’s very easy to open the door for someone to ask buy simply offering to listen.

I, Mark E. Sackett started this in San Francisco over 7 years ago as a way to help others do better in life, love and business. I own 13 companies and live in San Francisco. I hop between Los Angeles, New York, Vancouver BC and my hometown of Kansas City often. I'm a Director, Producer, Designer, Art Director and Public Speaker. Working daily in Branding, Marketing, Film, Television and Music and as an events producer and speaker allows me to talk about and thrive, while living an authentic, powerful and creative life.

My Mantra: "The power of us all working together is so much greater than anything each of us can accomplish on our own."

See you soon and I hope your year is about beautiful, powerful connections. Connect with me by clicking below to start sharing my massive networks with those you can help to do better each day!

About the group

We are a groups of artists, film makers, designers, musicians, bankers, health professionals, attorneys, business leaders and others from the Startup, Entrepreneur and Founder community! Our events are held Monthly in San Francisco! This is the most unique networking event you can attend. Check out our site and what people have said about our events: http://www.TheArtofActiveNetworking.comScroll down on the homepage and also watch our TEDx Talk!

This is a group dedicated to helping each of it's members do better. While we are not exclusively for the entertainment business, we have thousands of members worldwide who are members because Mark E. Sackett our founder is a Designer, Director, Producer and Art Director for Film, Music, Television and Advertising. We believe that by helping others we grow powerful and sustainable relationships. Mark knows that we work with those we know, like and trust, yet this business is about long casting lines, sending endless headshots and using our fingers crossed mentality to connect for an opportunity. But having powerful relationships is so much more critical to success.

We do these events monthly in New York, San Francisco, Silicon Valley, Los Angeles, Orange County, and Pasadena, 4 to 6 times a year in Vancouver, Kansas City and select other cities as we are invited.

Take a look at our Website and join us in your city. http://www.TheArtofActiveNetworking.com

Tickets are 20$ online and 30$ cash as the door. This charge is only to cover venue and overhead costs and the events are between 35-135 people maximum! Mark makes sure you meet every person in the room and personally attends all events to ensure that!

Questions? Call Mark anytime at 415-602-9500
