WEST HARTFORD, CONN. (June 1, 2018) – Entrepreneur, influencer and marketing expert David Yarus will be the guest speaker at a professional networking happy hour starting at 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, June 21, 2018 at Upward Hartford, 20 Church Street, Hartford.

Complimentary kosher appetizers will be served, and a cash bar will be available. A Q&A with David Yarus will follow his remarks.
