Event description

Description

G'day Cantab Crusaders and Mainlanders!

A Few Quiet Yarns is an event that's been running for 9 years; the focus on enabling you to meet the person, through facilitated introductions by host Ryan Ashton who will go round the room and introduce everyone to everybody by name 203 the record to beat! to help you know who is in the room and enable you to connect with ease.

There is a no-selling rule; no one wants to be sold to after hours, but they do want to meet good people, and once you know the cut of a person's jib, you might ask for their card to arrange a follow up catch up which is great, but you can not flick your cards out or sell.

Checkout this video (albeit Auckland based video) 'Personalise business' by meeting the person, not their suit!

Mates (Sponsor) Supporter:

Rudi Hefer, from Solarix; Rudi and I go back 10+ years where we worked at sister companies IDG & IDC, now "Taking your networking personally" at Solarix, it's a natural fit with AFQY's "Personalising Business" through networking - thanks for helping AFQY come to Hamilton.

Sponsor

Mark LoveysLast but not least, Mark Loveys from Datagate, who is an AFQY Digital Partner, proving the business can be done on a handshake with our announcement made 14 days before contracts were signed, "Destiny in Motion" as his famous song from Satellite Spies days goes - and music is a good place to start a yarn with.
