Networking panel discussion

We all know networking is key in the GLAMR industry. However, the word networking often brings feelings of anxiety with it. Queensland’s Regional Coordinators are taking networking down a notch to make it a little bit easier to swallow. Join us and our awesome panel to hear about what networking is all about and pick up some tips to make networking seem not as bad! And to test your new found networking knowledge there will be time to network with cheese & wine after the panel discussion.

Email to RSVP.


Are you going to APLIC but don’t know anyone else? Maybe you want to make some new friends before heading to the conference? Or perhaps you just like to play games? Join the Students & New Graduates CATS of APLIC on the evening before the conference to meet fellow GLAMRonians. Join us at iPlay at Pacific Fair and for $20 we can get unlimited dodgems, bowling AND laser tag!!! That’s right, laser tag! Afterwards, we can meet some fish folk as we join up with Sally and Amy at the Turbitt and Duck APLIC Meet Up.
