Spatial speed networking with free beer

Posted by josediacono @ 10:40 am under Uncategorized

I went to a spatial speed networking evening last night in Sydney (my daughter reckons it was speed dating but the ratio of males to females wouldn’t have worked too well!). It was very enjoyable. About 30 people in a private bar area in the CBD 6-8pm, we sat 3-4 at a table for 7 minutes and introduced ourselves and chatted, then a bell rang and we all swapped. After about 5 swaps we just mingled and ate finger food. Met interesting people from surveying (it was co-hosted by BOSSI the Board of Surveying and Spatial information¬† and SSSI but you didn’t have to be affiliated to any association to attend), utilities, students, consulting engineers, developers, people looking for jobs and Wendy Chapman (former publisher of Position) who is back in town after a long holiday. It was a chance to ask people how they use (or don’t use) social media for my upcoming article in Position magazine.

It was free and a nice opportunity to see all christmas lights in Martin Place. I hope we will have more. Thanks to Heidi Brown for organising it.
