About Daryl

What does Columbus offer young professionals?
Columbus has a variety of rising and thriving businesses. As the boomer generation begins to retire, it will be vital for us young professionals to step up and take on their roles.

What do you hope members get out of their involvement in the CYP CLUB?
I hope that people develop business contacts and relationships, meet new people, and have fun at our CYP CLUB events.

Why did you join the CYP CLUB?
I joined the CYP CLUB to meet new people, make friends, and network with other young professionals in the central Ohio area.

What's your favorite CYP CLUB event and why?
That's a tough one. I tend to like the smaller events, such as Morning Networking, where everyone's mingling instead of just standing with the same group they came in with. Also, the events with various games, like cornhole, are a blast as well.

How would you describe Columbus?
Columbus is a hip, growing city that offers the small town feel as well. Unlike most large cities in Ohio, downtown Columbus doesn't get abandoned in the evenings or on the weekends because there's a variety of things to do in the Short North, German Village, Arena District, and Grandview areas. In the summer, you will often see people out running, riding bikes, going to festivals, on restaurant patios, and at Goodale or Schiller Park.
