There’s no better way to meet new leads and make new connections after a busy day at work than at the hugely successful Fast Forward Speed Networking events.
Join the Victorian Chamber on Tuesday 13 February and meet a huge bunch of like-minded individuals over two rounds of speed networking.
You won’t be locked into a long conversation with anyone as you only get two minutes to chat before moving onto the next business contact. So all you need is a brief, punchy narrative about why you are here and what makes your business great, and remember to swap business cards, of course!
After the formal networking rounds, you still have plenty of opportunity to further network with those who you wish to continue the conversation with over canapes and drinks.
To ensure a great mix of companies, only two people from each business can attend.
So who’s coming from your organisation? Hurry – this event is always over-subscribed because Fast Forward Speed Networking works!
