MEET AMAZING PEOPLE

Don’t try to figure everything out on your own, you will grow so much faster if you work together, learn from other people’s experiences and build a support network.

We’ll be helping you do just that at the hosted networking sessions running across both days, run by the wildly successful networking queen, Hannah Thompson of The Development Partner Network.

Participants are divided into groups. Each person in the group takes it in turn to present a current issue they face in their job, business or personal development, and have it brainstormed by the group in 5-7 minute cycles.

An open networking format. In advance of the event in the delegate's Facebook group, plus on the day, delegates have the opportunity to advertise for a skill that they either require help with or would like to hire someone to do for them. This open networking session is perfect for meeting your 'skill dates'.

Speed networking, but more fun!
