Personal name badge- My essential networking tool!

I attended this event last night, sponsored by Servcorp at their Riparian Plaza, 71 Eagle St Brisbane QLD serviced offices. There wasn’t a big turn out with about 20 people attending. But I did meet some interesting business owners.

Glenn from Computer Troubleshooters- Windsor told me about his franchise that he just started 3 weeks ago. Glenn is already in conversation with major players in the industry such as Microsoft and AVG. He is wanting to specialise in servicing the accounting industry. He also is a big fan of the Rich Dad Poor Dad books, something I can relate with!

Ben from Cyberbash is an Internet Service Provider (ISP). He also does other areas of IT, as we discussed with himself and Justin about my idea for a phone app. Interesting things are happening in the tech sector for Brisbane, as I found out about a hackers spot. No, not hacker criminals but people who write computer code as a living.

Jody from Aussie Financial Services does insurance for business. I was talking to him about Foley Business Management where we provide services to the Not For Profit (NFP) sector. Jody is going to forward to me a contact he has for someone who provides audits for NFP’s at a reasonable price, as he is the Treasurer of a motocross club.

Not being a big night I did meet some new business owners and arriving at 6:30pm I was out of there by 8pm.
