Networking with creativityWe've got our final Networx networking seminar 'Memory & Memorability' event coming up and we'll be showing Brisbane's business community how to network with some creative flair! 

Our memory and memorability workshop facilitator is Jennifer Goddard, director of the Buzan Centre – Australia / New Zealand and co-founder of Mindwerx International is she's uniquely qualified to help people explore their memories and improve them on a practical level so that we all can be innovative, creative and memorable.  She will also be sharing the secret to good memory and memorability.

We'll be doing our normal networking game at the start, and then Jennifer will take over and that's where the fun will start.  For one of the networking activities, we'll be working with 'wine whirls'. 

Wine whirls came about when Jennifer's company Mindwerx were doing their annual challenge of doing something different with the Christmas cards.  They wanted to help their clients and supporters stimulate creativity and give something fun for them to do over the festive season.  Wine whirls are coloured beads on a piece of wire (pictured below) and are made by the Vocational Class at St Vincent School for the Deaf in South Africa. You can read the full story of 'Creativity Wired' and St Vincent School for the Deaf.

'Creativity Wired' turned out to be a great exercise in creative marketing.  They blogged about it on their Fuzz2buzz website and invited recipients to send in their photos of their most creative uses for the wine whirls:

Mindwerx International received a lot of positive feedback from this campaign overall and it certianly proved to be memorable.

All Networx attendees for 'Memory & Memorability' will receive one of these wine whirls for one of the networking activities.  What you do with it after the event, is up to you!
