March 19th, 2013 - Inspiring Sandgate Business Men
Calling all Sandgate Entrepreneurs, Business Men, Community Leaders and Movers and Shakers..
Hear from some inspiring, experienced and generous Sandgate based Men who are running successful national and international businesses.
Our one-off event provides you with the rare opportunity to share your successful business journeys with other "movers and shakers" within the Sandgate community.
This event is about tapping into the expertise and connections in the Sandgate Area. The are dozens of amazing and successul blokes tucked away living in the Sandgate area. We are all drawn to the low key, sea side lifestyle which provides a perfect contrast to often high level national and international business and corporate careers.
This event is not your average suburban networking event, it is going to be a great night for anyone looking to expand themselves and their businesses. This type of event would usually require a trip into the CBD.. we thought it was time to tap into the talent that we have in our catchment.
The purpose of this event is threefold:
- Allowing successful Sandgate Men to "give back" to the community by sharing their experience (successes and set backs).
- Providing a platform to Sandgate Business Men to catch up and talk business and make some new connections.
- Inspiring a new generation of Sandgate Business Men taking on big things in the business both in the Sandgate and beyond.
The format of the night will feature 10 stories of inspiration and success from some talented, experienced and passionate Sandgate Business Men. There is a lot of time to catch up and make some new contacts on the night.
