Who goes to Networx Brisbane events?
While Networx events were originally targeted at younger people (under 35) working in marketing, advertising, PR and sales, the appeal of the speakers and attendees has broadened the group. The group now includes many entrepreneurs and business owners and people who are attracted by particular speaker topics, who represent a diverse range of careers, from law to film making. What Networx attendees have in common is their openness, enthusiasm and keen interest in learning more about their industry and profession – or simply in taking the opportunity to meet potential friends and business contacts. Sometimes, they are simply people who want to be inspired!
