We're The Exchange
Traditional networking isn’t for everyone. The same people, in the same rooms, talking about the same topics, eating the same cheese platters and drinking cheap wine.
Networking focused on throwing out business cards, and frenzied LinkedIn connections can make it challenging to build genuine trusted relationships.
The Exchange brings together makers, planners, doers and thinkers who don’t usually come together to spark action. It’s for people who network all of the time, and those that never have.
A different way of connecting
What are we exchanging?
Motivating others whether they are just starting out on their journey or feeling a bit weary
Go beyond business cards and LinkedIn networks to create genuine connections.
Share solutions to problems or draw on the collective experience to co-design something new
How does it work?
Each event is organised around a topic that attendees have a personal connection to.
We curate a location, a theme, a guest list, some tasty food and an engaging activity.
BEFORE THE EVENT
You sign up for The Exchange Collective.
We invite you to the event we think will excite you.
We curate a mix of uncomfortable networkers, aspiring business owners, intrapreneurs, creatives and leaders.
We let you know who is coming so that you can cyberstalk them.
DURING THE EVENT
We create good vibes– we do a little something to break the ice; make it easy to start (and leave) conversations, and put on some good eats so you don’t go home hungry.
You come ready to exchange – an idea, a solution, some good advice, product samples or positive energy.
AFTER THE EVENT
You keep in touch with the people that you clicked with best.
We keep the conversation happening across events, people and locations.
