When we launched the promotions for #AFQY March 1st event we said, "It's way too... quiet... so bring on the first yarn for 2018", and we were taken quite literally with 158 people filling up Bungalow8 which was busting at the seams and the first not-so-quiet yarns for the year took place!
Rumblings from the jungle...
Ryan the Lion's ROAR!
I network, I love networking, and I love being networked by others. What's your story? Who are you? I want to know, I genuinely do. I know so many people, I know so many stories, and those who have seen me in full swing reciting at times 203 people's names, jobs, companies and the odd story or joke, they know...
Everything has to have a "why", it's like oxygen or currency, or as Simon says, gold.
A Few Quiet Yarns closed out 2017 with a last Auckland event and what fun, it was good Xmas Party!
October 19th was another AFQY night full of fun and good times shared by all with plenty of yarns, connections and sharing of experiences.
The heading is strong, deliberate and accurate. It describes the partner ship Mark Loveys and Ryan Ashton have forged through building a personal relationship, learning the cut of each other jib, doing business on a handshake and signing the partnership agreement 14 days after the announcement.
A bit of a yarn...
I want to share a personal story that embodies AFQY, it comes from a mate/attendee who was looking at sponsoring the event and said the below:
AFQY events are the perfect place to start your networking, regardless of why you need to network, as AFQY is an environment created purely for Peer-2-Peer networking, hence it's an easy event to start with.
