A few quiet yarns is a distinctly Kiwi style ICT/business-networking event focussed on building personal relationships, by being sociable. Set after hours generally at a restaurant/bar which provides a relaxed environment first of all to meet in a social environment to engage socially. Secondly host Ryan Ashton will introduce everybody to everybody to build some familiarity and make it plain, "If you want to talk to someone named, you now know who is here and you're invited to connect."

It is important to understand that NO selling is allowed. This is to encourage end users to happily join and create a cross mix from sales to end users across the IT/Business industry. In addition, there are NO fees, NO speaches, NO sponsors so you're obligated to no one - it's your time.
I invite you to bring others with you and join the group here on Linked In to gain notifications of further events.
