Last month Platform’s last ConnectAfter4 of the year drew close to 100 RSVPs – once again demonstrating the importance and value attached to regular networking.
Platform’s signature networking event, ConnectAfter4 brings together Perth’s business professionals; providing them the opportunity to network and build business relationships in a relaxed, social setting.
Platform Director Kirsty Danby introduced ConnectAfter4 in September 2012 as a way to give back to Platform’s clients and industry peers who have shown continual support throughout the years.
“ConnectAfter4 is about doing things for others – whether it’s providing advice, a skill, contact, or good conversation – it is important to always find ways to reciprocate the favour,” Kirsty said.
“Giving back is the most important networking principal and I see ConnectAfter4 as a forum where I can help industry peers create new and relevant connections with like-minded professionals.”
Though it is important to expand your network it is also crucial to remember that smart networking is not about meeting everyone in the room, it’s about approaching a select few people and making a lasting impression.
“I always encourage targeted networking and ConnectAfter4 is the perfect forum where I can introduce industry peers to the relevant professionals for their business and goals,” Kirsty said.
ConnectAfter4 has gone from strength to strength and with the continual support we receive from clients and industry peers, we are looking forward to continuing this progress in 2016.
Look out for your invite to Platform’s first ConnectAfter4 event in the New Year.
