Speed Networking Event — October 25, 2022

A great time was had by all for the speed networking component of CP(NSW)’s member event last week. After the formalities of the Abrams Scholarship announcement, members gathered at their assigned tables and asked and answered questions such as “What scared you most about doing a collaborative matter?”, “What is your favourite reality TV series?” and “What would your younger self not believe about yourself today?”. Some of the things discovered about fellow collaborators were truly surprising!

Feedback received for the event has been fabulous – thank you Gloria Hawke and Bernie Bolger for organising such a great night.

“It was so much fun, a great way to meet some new colleagues”

“Very enjoyable and a great way to promote collegiality. Congratulations and thanks to the organisers”

“It was an absolutely fantastic night, thoroughly enjoyed it”

“It was relaxed and so was fun as it was a bit different and was good for meeting other collaborative practitioners and getting to know the ones you already know better. So, as one of a range of types of functions it worked well”

“It was such a great night and a great opportunity to meet new and likeminded colleagues, and catch up with those that we haven’t been able to see for some time!”

“A great event and important in developing the sense of a collaborative community.”

“Great fun and met a good range of people.”

“I enjoyed meeting some new collaborative lawyers and catching up with colleagues I have not seen for some years. Thank you to Bernie, Gloria and anyone else who organised the event. Maybe in summer we could meet at an outdoor bar or place where we have access to the outdoors when it’s warmer.”
