Networking Cocktail Party
Fantastic start to the M2 Success Innovation Summit at the Cordis with the opening by Buttabean with amazing diverse speakers. Buffet to follow.
I enjoyed the day and came away with several excellent take outs and a couple of good networking opportunities for follow up. Often when one attends such events, they are industry specific and themed, but what really made the day was the eclectic range of speakers covering a broad spectrum from start-ups to business stars with something to interest most people. I think the 20 min speaker format kept things interesting and moving as did the format and variety from individual speakers, to Andre interviewing some of the presenters. Well done to you and your team.
Many thanks for the exceptional day! The broad range of speakers were inspirational, as were the amazing people that filled your audience. The venue was spot on and the food was awesome! I particularly enjoyed the format – fast moving that showcased the depth of talented people doing some incredible things both here and internationally. I’m looking forward to more.
What an inspirational start to a Wednesday, hearing Dave Letele aka the Brown Buttabean open the #m2successsummit. Love his message that health is the real wealth – it’s not uncommon to forget this if we’re too focused on our work life demands. A good reminder to stop making excuses for neglecting your physical and mental wellbeing (and with that, I’m leaving the office and heading off to play a game of netball!).
Well done on an exceptional event. By far the best of its kind in New Zealand. Can’t wait for the next one.
