FUN & FREE SPEED NETWORKING EVENT in Melbourne CBD!!

  • Apr 8, 2014 · 6:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members


Are you a slave in your own business?

Did you know it only takes 1 good idea to DOUBLE your profits?

Come and join us to meet other motivated and like minded business owners who you can network and share ideas with.

This event is TOTALLY FREE!!


SPEED NETWORKING!

Networking events are THE BEST WAY to grow your business!!

However, if you don't meet everyone in the room you could be missing out on that one potential new client that can bring you VERY valuable business.

You also sometimes can get stuck talking to someone who isn’t a good prospect for your business at all, and you CAN'T ESCAPE?!!

Speed networking gives you 3 minutes with each person before you move on to the next. It means you can filter out those people who are of no interest to your business, compared to those who are of interest.

It is without a doubt, THE BEST WAY to maximise your time efficiently - giving you the most amount of prospects in the shortest time possible.

To put it simply... it rocks!

Who is Luke and why is he running and organising this event?

Luke Shavak aka 'The Business Buddha' is the organiser and founder of Melbourne Entrepreneurs. Luke has been practising a Buddhist meditation for several years, and has done quite a number of silent ten day retreats. He meditates for 2 hours every single day.

As well as his spiritual commitment to himself, Luke has achieved his Black-Belt in Karate, climbed Mt. Everest and performed in a 24 Hour non-stop rock concert at Federation Square in Melbourne to raise money for cancer research.

Luke is also building an organic products business. He is very passionate about sustainability and helping the planet. If you feel the same way or know of someone who also shares the same organics passion – definitely connect with him on the night :)

How is the night run?

The night basically runs with general networking from 6pm-7pm, as there are always late comers. The actual speed networking usually starts around 7pm or a bit after, and then some valuable networking at the end to connect with those who you definitely know you can do business with!

What should I bring?

Heaps of business cards, your friends, and a water bottle as you may get a dry throat from all the talking! It can get very loud so please talk as quietly as you can when the speed networking begins rather than trying to compete with the noise level of the person next to you (this tends to upset some people).

How do I get to the Hub?

The Hub hosts a collaborative shared office space, as well as coworking and event spaces to spark productivity and passion into your work!

It's across from Southern Cross train station. It's an old building and there are no signs out the front. Just walk in and take the lift.



I look forward to meeting up in person!

    If u want to meet start up "business owners" then this is your place. I personally was disappointed at the lack of substance of the participants, most people there had business ideas, but no real ability to make it work. It was also loud and difficult to hear the people in there. Thinking that if you pay peanuts, you get monkeys. Will think twice when going to free networking.

    A big acknowledgement to Luke for the effort in organizing this event. The event met my expectations of quick intro, ability to make a first impression, and exchange of contacts for future follow-up if required. Anything more complex would have been draining given that the event was held at the end of a working day. The majority of participants were really warm and inviting. You don't need to 'connect' with 100 people. Even one will worth the time and effort and I think I did!

    This event is an opportunity for people to make themselves and their business/business idea known to others. That's what is all about! It's up to the individual to make use of the business cards they obtained and connect with other attendees in the days after. That's called follow up, EVERYONE can do it. A big thank you to Luke to provide the platform, I will for sure come back.
    Re noise in the room - it might be an idea to occasionally remind people to keep their voice a bit down.
    PS I don't see myself as a monkey :)

      Agree Kerstin. The Idea of the networking session was to connect and help each other out for mutual benefits or even just referrals. That's the expectation I had and got.
