Evening With a Legend
Our Evening with a Legend events are...legendary! Amazing opportunities for our DL members to meet industry icons in intimate settings. We’ll let the following comments speak for themselves:
“The program was indeed a success. Jeff Milanaik's generosity with his time demonstrates the emphasis that the leadership places on mentoring young talent and is evidence of the value NAIOP membership has to young professionals.” Robert A. Stout, Jr., Esq., Porzio, Bromberg & Newman, P.C.
“Absolutely amazing and extremely informative! I would recommend that every DL try to attend at least one of these sessions, as gaining insight from leaders in the industry like Jeff Milanaik and getting to know our leaders on a more personal level is an invaluable and priceless experience, especially in a small group setting. James Jones is a pioneer for coming up with this wonderful idea, and Jeff and our other leaders at NAIOP are extremely generous and selfless in giving their time and knowledge to the DLs.” Vivek Singh, Esq., Gibbons P.C.
“A great event. It was a unique opportunity to dialogue with the leader of one of the premier firms in our industry and in the process to get to know several other developing leaders. I would be willing to host one in the future.” Peter R. Sorge, JM Sorge, Inc., Environmental Consultants.
"The Dinner with Mr. (Peter) Cocoziello was a great opportunity to dine with a major thought leader in the industry," said DL Eddie Rivera of Sax Macy Fromm & CO. PC. "I really appreciated Mr. Cocoziello's straightforward approach. His insight on real estate and business in general is invaluable."
DL Mixers have included everything from meet-ups at brew pubs to sports events hosted receptions and member offices. Sometimes free, sometimes pay as you go, these are wonderful opportunities to meet peers and colleagues in a relaxed setting.
