What is The Sydney Business Networking Event? It’s a thought provoking evening for business leaders and top level professionals to grow their peer network, create new relationships and have a good time. Who is it for? Business owners and professionals like yourself covering all industries, with an open mind to meeting new people, sharing your wealth of knowledge and not being afraid to ask for what you need. You will meet everybody from marketing gurus, communications professionals, brokers, designers, executives, lawyers, accountants, entrepreneurs, speakers, and so many more. Scroll down to see a full list from one of our previous events. Who is Presenting? At each event we have a short presentation. To give you new ideas on how to improve your business, collaborate, cut costs, get funded, grow sales and more. Each time the focus is on something you can bring back to your office and implement right away. The night includes… A room full of high profile professionals – there are "business connectors" to welcome you, and introduce you to people who most interest you Complimentary wine, beer and finger food Engaging ways to "meet-and-mingle" with other guests Presentation with take-home insights you can implement right away Prizes and a goodie bag from our sponsors To reserve a space at this exclusive event please use the registration options above. How does it work? We believe that business networking can be both effective and fun. The game is not about walking away with a huge stack of business cards of people you couldn't recognise if they called you the next day. It's about fostering real relationships with people who can help build your business, or whom you can help build theirs. This is how we make it happen… You are greeted and introduced as you arrive. Nothing worse than being the last new arrival trying to break into somebody's conversation We interrupt proceedings throughout the evening. Gives you a chance to connect with other business owners and with exhibitors. No need to be stuck with the same person for 45 minutes There is always a great mix of people. Some have been to many of our events, however, generally 50% of attendees are there for the first time. That means there is always somebody new to meet for everybody. You meet real, serious business owners, executives and specialists. The list of titles below is real, we just removed the duplicates. From one single event. As we ask people to connect and share, instead of to sell, you will see that really genuine people show up. Event Location! We're at our favourite location of the Royal Exchange – right in the heart of the city. Who will you meet? Well, we can't guarantee exactly who will be in the room, but we can tell you who normally shows up (this list is a condensed list of the titles of people who showed up at a previous Business Connector event, copied from Eventbrite): Creative Director Owner & Head Copywriter Photographer Financial Controller Project Engineer Principal Lawyer Managing Director General Manager Garden Designer Solicitor/Director Executive Producer Advisor/Counsellor Photographer Consultant Business Writer Principal Strategist Business Performance Strategist Principal Owner Counsellor/Psychotherapist Co-founder Business facilitator Internet Marketing Consultant Social Media Specialist Chairman Executive Assistant Regional Manager Director Founder Business Manager Operations Manager Managing Director CEO Copywriter Principal Consultant Facilities Manager Owner Marketing Consultant Director – Corporate Training Partner Lawyer, Consultant & Business Adviser Brand Designer Producer Senior Graphic Designer & Brand Manager Peak Performance Executive Principal Small Business Specialist Business Banking Manager Investment Adviser Senior Consultant Business Advisor Business Coach Chiropractor What do Others Say? Terri Purchase • I would highly recommend anyone who is interested in meeting a great & varied group of people who are serious about their business join this group. I went to the event that Hugh & Mike ran last Tuesday night (my first) & it was the most slick networking event I have ever been to. I moved to Sydney from Los Angeles & have been to a couple of networking events since I have been here but their event was by far the best. What makes what they do so great (both the events & this group), the wonderful mix of people, the structure that Hugh & Mike create for the live events & they appear to me to be about: being informative, facilitating great networking/conversations, injecting humor where appropriate & most importantly encouraging people to engage so that we can all learn off each other. I love assisting in connecting people who can benefit each other & they are all about this also. I look forward to participating in some of the discussions on here & meeting others who are passionate about create amazing businesses, at future events. FAQs What is the refund policy? You can cancel your booking up to 5 days before an event and your ticket will be fully refunded. As this is the normal cut-off for organising catering and other event details, no refunds are possible after that point. Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event? You can bring your printed ticket or install the Eventbrite app on your smartphone. We love paperless! What's the dress code? Business casual is normal – most people come straight from work so whatever you wear professionally is fine. Should I bring business cards? Are you serious? If you don't have something to share so that people can contact you again, why bother making connections in the first place? When should I arrive? If you arrive more than 15 minutes after the start you will probably miss our introduction and our explanation of how our events run, so please try to be prompt. Any other tips? Arrive early, welcome people arriving later, be honest and open, be prepared to ask for help with your business.
