Today I attended a speed networking session organised by Melbourne Entrepreneurs and held at the Hub Melbourne. The event brought together a diverse group of business owners, entrepreneurs covering a range of industries.
The atmosphere was relaxed and participants had the opportunity to speak about what they did and exchange business cards.
Networking has always been important to us, in meeting not only new clients but also potential alliance partners.
Speed networking provides the opportunity to speak to more people, when compared to traditional events. A speed networking event enables participants to speak to each other within a strict time limit, meaning there is a need to be succinct and to find points of mutual beneift.
I enjoyed the discussions and meeting the participants. Many attendees had just started in business and are excited about developing new opportunities.
Strategic Marketing is important when you start a business as it provides you with a guide to achieve your objectives. We looked forward to meeting participants from Melbourne Entrepreneurs and fostering new partnerships.
