The networking evening for journalists, PR people and other media types, Booze’n'Schmooze, is back for 2011 on Thursday, January 27th. More details to follow but contact @AlanJDuncan or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re interested in popping along.
UPDATE: This event will now take place on February 3rd in Dicey’s Bar on Harcourt Street.
The free monthly networking event, Booze and Schmooze, is back and open to anyone working in PR, marketing or the media. It aims to “provide a relaxed environment in which to make useful and interesting contacts – essential to their success in the industry – without the awkwardness involved in formal networking.”
No longer driven by the marketing people at the D|two bar, the venue will change from month to month. The next meet-up will take place in The Sycamore Club, 9 Sycamore St, Temple Bar, Dublin 2 at 6:30pm on Thursday 12th August.
There’ll be free food and drinks promos – essential to loosening tongues at networking gigs! To attend, RSVP to email@example.com.
I’ve been to a couple of great events lately but with conferences costing €100 and upwards…not to mention time out of the office, it can be hard to pick and choose which conferences you can afford to attend…or not to attend as the case may be!
There are a growing number of quality free events springing up all around the country – two Dublin events that spring to mind are the Digital Mizfits events organised by Suzanne Fitzgerald of Moo Pictures and the Measure It! series run by Damien Mulley of Mulley Communications (haven’t managed to get to a Measure It! myself but reports from others indicate it’s well worth popping along if you can….next one is August 4th).
This Irish Internet Association and the National College of Ireland are hosting the “Dot Conf” on July 22nd – registration at 10am with the first speaker kicking off at 10.30am. According to the IIA:
“the dot conf is a new web technology conference for anyone who works, rests or plays with the internet. It’s a one day event and it’s free. Essentially it’s a teddy bears picnic but with internet folk instead of bears.”
It’s a full day event being held to mark the launch of the NCI’s new MSc in Web Technologies with an interesting mix of speakers and best of all it’s free.
My mission of 2010 is to get out and about more, flashing business cards like a blackjack dealer so I’ll certainly try to get along to this.
