Connecting at Northwharf

Connecting at Northwharf Image

Eighty Docklanders came together for some end-of-financial-year business networking last month at the quarterly Docklands News Networking Lunch.

The June 22 lunch was one of the best so far with patrons being impressed with the Wharf Hotel and its great location on the river in front of the World Trade Centre at Northwharf.

The last guests left after 4pm and, as usual, plenty of business cards were exchanged and new contacts made.

The lunch was address to Asset 1 WTC strategic director Philip Hill, who outlined the current state of the historic Shed 5 redevelopment, his plans for a water taxi between Northwharf and the city and the establishment of a fund to renovate the Mission to Seafarers building.

Mr Hill’s address is reported separately on page XX of this edition.

Fiona Hoppe of Servcorp won the door prize, which was generously donated by Jetts Fitness – a two-month membership including a session with a personal trainer.

The next lunch will be held in September.  A venue is yet to be chosen, but will be announced in the August edition of Docklands News.
