Startup Breakfast Club: Networking 101

The Breakfast Club is your monthly morning caffeine hit where you’ll find valuable social networks, gain business insight, and find the critical support to power your venture forward. 

Effective networking doesn’t have to be boring, inauthentic or awkward. In fact, if done correctly, it can have a major impact on your business – and your happiness.

That’s why we’re shaking things up to bring you the ultimate guide to networking at this month’s Startup Breakfast Club! With help from our expert facilitators – this year’s TEDx Christchurch MC Kit Hindin and MYOB’s education manager Shailan Patel – we’ll show you ways to introduce yourself and your business, how to break the ice, and how to make the most of every networking opportunity in Christchurch.

P.S. We’ve moved, so don’t forget to check out our new address in the details above. We can’t wait to see you there!
