The first Tuesday of the Month is our in person networking event.
It’s a chance to hear a couple of speakers and then enjoy some craft beers, wine and food. We always have vegan and vegetarian options and non-alcoholic options available too.
These are usually from 5.30pm on the first Tuesday of the month at one of our company member offices. At these events industry experts come along and share their knowledge of particular topics. We have a mix of both business and technical presentations. Industry experts present on topics ranging from agile development to capital raising and latest industry updates.
At the end of the year we host our AGM followed by a fun quiz evening. Our meetings provide excellent networking opportunities and a great chance for everyone to meet and make contacts in a relaxed environment with craft beer, wine and nibbles provided. These events are typically for around 100 to 150 people and are free to attend for members (casual fee is $30+GST per event). Please note that we do sometimes have a limit on numbers so registering early is recommended to avoid disappointment.
If it’s your first time let us know when you arrive and we can introduce you to some lovely people to get you started.
