DCN-style networking comes to Docklands

28 May 2009

In response to requests from local businesses the Docklands News is stepping into the business networking space with a series of lunches.

The inaugural Docklands News Networking Lunch is booked for June at the Melbourne Yacht Club Hotel, so look out for your invite from one of our hosts.

Lunch will be of the long, lazy variety so participants are advised to consider marking out the rest of the day.

DCN Advertising Director Amanda Innes said it had become obvious that Docklands needed an exclusive networking event to build and strengthen business relationships within the precinct and to introduce other businesses to the services we have to offer here.

“There is a real need to have a networking event that is designed to do that in an environment where you can make real connections,” Miss Innes said.

“I wish I had a dollar for every time someone had suggested the paper do something in this area.  But we don’t want speeches, sponsors or anything complicated,” she said. 

“We think the key to success in this arena is to keep it simple and just bring together the right people for a relaxing afternoon.”

Miss Innes explained that the format relied on six table hosts inviting between six and eight guests to the lunch. 

Guests will be asked to bring a bottle of wine and to pay a fee to cover their meal.

Miss Innes also added that she was planning to hold a larger scale event at the end of the year for all the members of the networking lunch, “how fantastic to have a ball where we can all dress up relax and maybe raise some money for charity, I will keep you posted”.

Hosting opportunities for the June lunch are no longer available but Miss Innes said she was happy to hear from people interested in hosting a table for July’s Docklands News Networking Lunch. 

If you are interested in hosting a table please email (JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).
