Connecting Southbank

Connecting Southbank Image

The Southbank Rotary club is upping the ante to improve its business-to-community connections, kicking off its Synergy @ Southbank program last month, with plans to hold another event during November.

Southbank Rotary’s president, Richard Shortt, said the program also encouraged and educated people in the skill of networking.

“Effective networking skills are critical in the competitive global economy and people who can connect with others multiply their own value and influence,” Mr Shortt explained.

“Synergy teaches participants to ask ‘what can I give?’ instead of ‘what can I get?’” he said.

There were 24 people at the first Synergy meeting at Boyd Community Hub during October and Mr Shortt said he hoped to build on this attendance during November.

“There was great feedback from the first meeting and support for a second meeting in late November,” Mr Shortt said.

“The original concept was for a series of events and for participants to see the value in attending the series rather than just a single event.”

The next Synergy @ Southbank will take place on November 28 at the Boyd Community Hub from 6.30 pm. Tickets are $35 with drinks and nibbles provided. For more information head to the Southbank Rotary’s website www.southbank.org.au
