Description

Hello Business Professionals,

Please join us for an evening of Swift Networking

Network with as many people as possible in one evening. If it looks like you're spending too long with one person then you will be given the signal to move onto the next person.

6.30pm Guest Speakers - Guest Speakers -Jenny Barkan, Elliott Fienberg and Duncan So

Jenny Barkan - Good stress. Bad stress. How to embrace the first and manage the other.

Stress often named a disease of 21st Century, endless research is conducted and articles are written about it. Yet so many of us are still constantly stressing; day in and day out.

Find out how to turn the tables around, finally take control over the stress and even use it to your advantage.


Duncan So - Social Entrepreneurship: The Path of Purpose and Making Impact

The 21st Century is a time of complexity and riddled with grand challenges like poverty, inequality, chronic stress and illness, environment degradation, and unsustainable practices which require a new kind of leadership and way of thinking.

As the fourth industrial revolution and exponential technologies are moving underway, it's an opportunity to learn the future skills we need today to address some of our deepest humanitarian issues through system change and making social impact.

Learn about the Purpose Awakening and how you might apply your entrepreneurial efforts for social good.


Elliot Fienberg - Teaching the Art of Free Play with Spaghetti Lab

In this presentation Elliott will share his story of working as an experimental sound artist, and how this experience led him to share his knowledge in the form of a product for kids.

We will uncover the Prototyping Mindset and how it can be used to battle the fear of uncertainty in your creative endeavours.


7.30pm - Swift Networking

You will be provided with one complimentary drink ticket (must be used by 8.30pm)

Additional Drinks: They have wide selection of drinks to choose from so you are encouraged to purchase additional drinks to support the staff and venue. You must pay for your own drinks.

Swift Networking: Spend about five minutes with each business professional then move onto the next person.

You save your time by meeting several people in a short space of time rather than spending the entire evening in conversation with the same set of people.

By the end of the evening you will have several useful contacts to pursue.

Bring at least 60 business cards.
