MELBOURNE: Networking Breakfast: 19 May 2021, Higher Ground:

We kicked off our first face-to-face event for Victoria 2021 to share ideas about networking!


Why network?

One of many benefits is sharing ideas and here are just some of the great ideas shared over our morning breakfast!…




Networking conversation starters. Four simple words you can use as a networking opener: “What brings you here?”


Networking conversation tips. Find some common ground with those you’re meeting.


Practical ways of staying in touch with your key contacts. Have you tried the QR code in LinkedIn to connect?


It has been a long time since we had the chance to connect in the same room, and we’re excited this is only the beginning of events in Victoria.

Thanks to everyone who attended! Check out some photos from the breakfast and look out for more Career Growth and Progression themed events for 2021!
