Judging by the energetic exchange of business cards, the CHAC Foundation’s sixth annual Corporate Networking Evening was a huge success! Sixty-five guests registered for the evening, representing an interesting variety of small, medium and large businesses – including guests from the South East Brisbane Chamber of Commerce.
Guests were split into five groups with half of each group rotating after 10 minutes, to ensure the maximum level of possible interaction with as many new faces as possible. The buzz in the Enterprise Centre was very lively as guests mingled, exchanged business cards, introduced their areas of expertise and enjoyed CHAC’s traditional hospitality.
As Principal Robyn Bell said in her welcome, the evening was a perfect example of value-adding to the CHAC and community, by inviting businesses into the College and facilitating networking. Businesses will have further opportunities to engage with students and initiatives in the Enterprise Centre through the provision of real-world projects, mentorship, project support, services, program bursaries and support for start-ups.
Any business wishing to utilise the Enterprise Centre for an entrepreneurial project, collaborative discussion or activity should email Barbara Mossman, Coordinator for Gifted and Enterprise Education.
