Speed Networking: Corporates/Creatives Meet

  • One Roof Women Event Space 81-83 City Road Southbank, VIC, 3006 Australia (map)

Corporates / Creatives Say Hello! Let's break the ice with a networking event like no other! Join us and meet up to 20 like minded and even different minded professionals.

In the past few months and even years I've been to a number of networking events. Some of them have been great and I've walked away with information I can use or someone I've met who's become a client. Others... and by others I mean quite a lot, I find you get stuck talking to THAT person. The person who you don't have a lot in common with, who's services you don't need and who don't need your services. You find the whole two hours or whatever it is was a waste and you walk away wishing you would have just stayed home and watched Netflix.

This is what I want to address and change. The beauty in speed networking is that each person gets 3-5 minutes to do their elevator pitch (another great benefit! You get to practice your elevator pitch!) You get right to the point: say what you're about, they say what they're about, and you both know if there's synergy straight away. If there's not, no big deal, if yes, awesome, make a plan to meet again. Of course you also exchange business cards, so you can follow up. SUPER SIMPLE. No one's stuck wishing they were snuggling their cat at home. Win, win. PLUS, by the end of the night, you should have between 10-30+ business cards of people you can follow up with (obviously, not spam, but just give a follow up email "Hey, nice meeting you...let's do it again.")

Now, I want to add another layer. The theme, Corporates / Creatives Meet. Corporates can have their head in the sand when it comes to website, photography, branding, logos, social media, etc... and Creatives can have their head in the sand when it comes to contract, accounting, business planning, etc. What better than to have them meet and see what they're both missing out on.

Special Guest

We are SO excited to announce there will be a special speaker to kick off the event. Marianne Marchesi will be joining us to tell her story about how she is disrupting the traditional way of delivering legal services through her company Legalite. Turning what is a traditionally corporate business and adding a creative flare! Seriously, check out her Instagram and you’ll get a feel of how she’s really changing the industry! We are so lucky to have her join us on the night!

What else on the night?

This Meetup will include drinks (alcoholic and non-alcoholic), and snacks in addition to all the networking you'll get done. WOOHOO!

Interested? Awesome! Click through the Eventbrite, pay the $10 plus service charge and you're all set! I'm SUPER excited to see you there!
