Wellington Branch Event: Speed networking

Ever felt like you wanted to talk to more people at an event, but didn’t have enough time? Or perhaps you felt uncomfortable butting into a conversation? Or wanted to talk to that one person who’s constantly surrounded by others?

Here’s your chance to network with no hard work involved!

Speed networking – just like speed dating but a lot more useful!

We’re taking the concept of speed dating and using it to share oodles of knowledge and ideas from our tech comm (and wider) world.

Pair up for 7 minutes, have a chat, then move on to your next person. Swap contact details if you want to take the conversation further. Depending on numbers, you should get at least 6 good chats out of it.

You might want to:

  • scope out the current tech comm scene for new opportunities
  • discuss tools you use (or want to use) or get help with them
  • find out how others do things (get better ideas)
  • get more info on ways of working, e.g. Agile
  • look at new career areas to branch out into
  • look for a potential employee.

We’ll have discussion prompters, or you can go freestyle and discuss whatever you’d like. You’ll be seated with nibbles at each station – we’re into relaxed networking.

Whether you’re looking for new opportunities, new people, or new ideas, come along!
