Coffee Contacts is a networking experience presented by the Mentor Area Chamber of Commerce and Eastern Lake County Chamber of Commerce. The events are facilitated by the incomparable team of Sherri Trivisonno and Kristin Strauser, with the help of other chamber members, and are held at Chamber member businesses.

The first Thursday of the month is usually the “larger” version of the event, often attracting more than 50 people! The third Thursday is the “decaf” version, usually held in smaller locations and attracting around 30.

These events are opportunities to meet fellow Chamber members in an entertaining “speed networking” model, where attendees often give “60-second commercials” about their business. We get you in and out in no more than an hour (8-9 am), and hear hundreds of great stories of successful “matchmaking” at this event.

If you are interested in learning more or in hosting one of these events at your business, please contact Mark Wainwright at or 440-255-1616.
