New networking era

31 Aug 2009

New networking era Image

A new era in business networking in Docklands was launched on August 7 with the success of the inaugural Docklands News Networking Lunch.

A select group of Docklands stakeholders were invited to come together and feedback their thoughts on an ideal format for local networking.

The overwhelming favoured format was for a high-end lunch, held quarterly and featuring either an address from a guest speaker or an interactive activity.

Most of the invitees said they would like to hear an address from one of the other local businesses attending.

The informality of the lunch was appreciated as it allowed people to meet and get to know each other without structure, speeches or any obligation to sponsors.

The Docklands News is conducting the events as a not-for-profit exercise to help build business relationships within Docklands. 

Our events partner, Patricia Dupont, of Sublime Events, keeps a small proportion of the $60 lunch fee to cover her administrative costs.

Local venues who would like to host a future Network Lunch are asked to contact Patricia on (JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

Check next month’s Docklands News for details of our next lunch. Also contact Patricia if you would like to be invited as a guest.
