Speed Networking – City of Yarra Networking @6

By Advice for Businesses No Comments

I attended the City of Yarra’s Networking @6 event held at the Richmond Town Hall.

Unlike other forms of networking, speed networking provides the opportunity to meet a large number of people and find synergies. We have attended many speed networking events in the past and developing an effective elevator pitch is a very important part of being effective at these sessions.

There was a diverse group of businesses that attended this event, with many located within the City of Yarra and surrounding areas.

It was great to be able to speak to so many people about their businesses and what they plan to do in the future. The event was well planned and provided a relaxed atmosphere for businesses to connect.

Networking@6 – What is your point of difference?

By News One Comment

The City of Yarra has developed Networking@6. Alex and Syneka Marketing are leading the first session discussing the topic of points of difference.

Networking@6 aims to be a business event with a difference, focused on discussion and the sharing of knowledge, rather than a rigid presentation and question format.

Designed to be an interactive event, participants have the opportunity to discuss what makes them unique, and stand out in a crowded market place.

The event will be held at the Richmond Town Hall, on Wednesday 16 April at 6pm for a cost of $10 per person.

City of Yarra Business Networking Breakfast with KeepCup

By News 4 Comments

The City of Yarra holds regular business events, which encourage networking and discussion around business activities within the municipality. This morning myself and Natalia attended the July Breakfast, which focused on sustainability.

The keynote speaker was Abigail Forsyth from KeepCup, who discussed the history of her business and its focus on sustainability. KeepCup, as a re-usable plastic coffee cup, reduces the number of disposable coffee cups in circulation.

The session was followed by presenters from VECCI, CitySwitch and the Yarra Energy Foundation, who discussed practical steps that businesses can undertake to improve their sustainability. The breakfast enabled businesses to see how sustainability can be incorporated into their ongoing operations and strategic direction.

I was also fortunate to have won the business card draw, winning a selection of premium glassware, courtesy of The Weekly Review. The glassware will certainly be of use in our offices!

Business breakfasts provide an opportunity to connect with other local businesses and we will be participating in future events hosted by the City of Yarra.

Australian Marketing Institute – Networking Event

By Advice for Businesses No Comments

The Australian Marketing Institute is the peak body representing the marketers and the industry across Australia.

As a corporate member, Syneka Marketing through its Directors Alex Makin and Natalia, are regular attendees of Australian Marketing Institute functions.

Tonight’s function was held in Richmond and provided a general networking opportunity to meet other members.

The AMI membership comprises of a mix of marketers, business coaches, advertising agencies and other consultants. One of the surprises we have with their members is the ongoing failure to actively engage the not-for-profit sector.

Syneka Marketing stands alone as the the only agency that engages the not-for-profit sector. We’re proud of our work in the not-for-profit sector, which has led to higher marketing standards and ongoing growth for organisations.

We hope to encourage the Australian Marketing Institute and its members to better understand the sector and initiate ongoing discussions around the importance of marketing for not-for-profit organisations.

The more discussion we can generate about the marketing needs of not-for-profit organisations, the more we can ensure that the sector actively engages marketing and sees its value.

At Oriental Spirit for our end of year party

Party to mark the end of 2012

We recently held our end of year party at Oriental Spirit on Victoria Street.   It was a nice day for Thai food, given that it was over 30 degrees and so we dined on Thai curries and other delicious dishes to celebrate our accomplishments for the year.

2012 has been a busy year for us. I am amazed at how quickly we have been able to grow. I believe that this is because we are a marketing agency that has great integrity. We provide our clients with excellent service and get them the results they want.

We end the year being regarded as the number one provider of marketing services for the not-for profit sector. We also continue providing high quality marketing services to a wide range of small and medium businesses, as well as government entities.

Ariel and Michael joined us in 2012 and have helped us produce websites and creative content for our clients. They both assisted us in our own re-brand which began by changing the Syneka Marketing logo. We hope to complete our re-brand before the New Year with a new website being the final step in this process.

This year marks the first at our head office in Regent Street, Richmond. We were very excited moving into these premises, which are close to the Melbourne Central Business District.

In 2012 I have taken a more active role in the future of Syneka Marketing so it can operate as a full service marketing agency. I am excited about the fact that Syneka Marketing now provides a full range of creative marketing services.

Next year we hope to strengthen Syneka Marketing’s ability to provide integrated marketing services that begin with the right strategy. Alex and I see the strategy as being the start of a wide range of marketing services that we can offer our clients.

We look forward to a successful 2013.
