Ever wanted to connect at conferences but you didn’t get the opportunity to approach people or you didn’t know how to go about it? That’s where Toi Tere comes in! Toi Tere is the Toi Tangata take on speed networking that’s highly efficient and gives you the opportunity to meet loads of people in a short space of time.

It works much like speed dating where each session will last for a specified time before everyone switches places to meet the next person!

Don’t know what to talk about? Kei te pai, we will have prompts for you! After introducing yourself, it may be helpful if you have prepared a 20 second blurb (sometimes known as an elevator pitch) about your kaupapa, organisation, or project- and don’t forget to bring you business cards. A top tip is to take notes on back of the business cards you receive.

It will be a fun way to break the ice, meet some new people or reconnect with those you haven’t seen in a while!
