NETWORK TO BREAK A WORLD RECORD

Written on the 18 August 2016

NETWORK TO BREAK A WORLD RECORD NATIONAL networking day is coming up and we're fighting for a Guinness World Records title this year.

The day of national networking, hosted by the Australian Institute of Management (AIM), is celebrated by people attending speed networking events at multiple venues.

On August 29, events will be held across the country in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide, Canberra, Darwin and Cairns.

In this global marketplace, where virtual networking is on the rise, the importance of face-to-face rapport and networking 'chemistry' is more important than ever. National Networking Day is encouraging individuals to develop these 'real networking' skills through the creation of a platform for career development.

With seven simultaneous events taking place across the country, AIM is ready to break the record, however to achieve this the overall total of attendees must exceed the single-venue record of 1068 participants.

In 2013, AIM's Regional Committee in Cairns broke the Guinness World Records title for 'Most people attending a business speed networking event in a single venue', with 475 people across 215 business sectors exchanging business cards in one location.

The event will see 1.5 hours of speed networking take place - where guests have three minute rounds to introduce themselves and network with a fellow attendee. To break the Guinness World Records title, each attendee must meet with a minimum of 20 other participants. In addition to this valuable face-to-face networking experience, guests are invited to enjoy drinks following the event.

Prices start from $55 for AIM Members, $75 for Non-Members, and $50 for full-time students. For more information or to sign up for your local event visit the AIM website.
