Free Speed Networking Melbourne provides a fun, structured and professional environment for people to connect in the Melbourne.

* This event started as Free Speed Networking Sydney (http://www.meetup.com/freespeednetworkingsydney/) and has expanded to Gold Coast and lovely Melbourne :)

Why did the group start?
Please read these questions...

Have you ever been to a social or business networking event and got stuck talking to someone for ages and you were too polite to say anything?!

Didn't know when or how to ask for someone's business card?

Do you want to meet new people but don't feel like going by yourself?

Have you ever had to sit through a long-winded speech at a Melbourne networking event which didn't even apply to you?

If you can understand any of those, then that's how Free Speed Networking started.

Why do people go?
1. Business Networking - Expand your business through referrals, new business contacts and discussing anything else on your entrepreneurial mind!
2. Career and Social Networking - Mix with like minded people in a fun environment.

How is Free Speed Networking Melbourne different?

Everyone will meet at least 10 different people a night

Perfect for attending by yourself because everyone will be encouraged to meet someone new anyhow!

We take the pressure of asking for the business card from you because it's built into the night!

Structured evening - No wasted time with lengthy speeches or getting stuck talking to the same person for what seems like an eternity!
