Shameless Soapbox is for you if you are in business (or want to be), have an idea that you want to get off the ground, or work with budding entrepreneurs in some way.
It's an open mic style of networking session where you can introduce yourself, your enterprise or just a good idea to a diverse range of friendlies. Who knows who you might meet? Sounding boards, advocates, collaborators, brokers, advisors, mentors, match-makers, service providers, funders, investors…
And if you're not the type to be up front in the spotlight, no problem. Join us anyway and chat one on one.
With each speaker given a mere two minutes on the soapbox to get their message across, it's amazing how much ground we can cover in one evening – it puts a whole month of walking around Auckland into a couple of hours, all for the price of a craft beverage.
Connect Auckland is nurtured by our cool cabal of connectors, Aucklanders driving change through collaboration and innovation within communities, for communities. Active and influential in their areas of interest, they are a connecting force to link like minds, complementary abilities and necessary resources, working together to build wellbeing.
