Young Enterprise Marketplace Evening

EVENT LINK

One of the ways the Chamber contributes to a positive future for business in Otago is by co-ordinating the Lion Foundation Young Enterprise Scheme (YES).

The YES programme has been refreshed for 2018! The updated programme takes students through a series of entrepreneurial experiences to help develop 21st century skills in real-world situations by working to their strengths.

Regional Coordinators Sarah Rickerby and Cara Bradley invite you to join us on Tuesday 21 August at 5pm for the Young Enterprise Marketplace at the Chamber.

This event will allow all YES teams to showcase their products and businesses to the community. The evening also offers a great opportunity for the students to increase their sales for the year. 

The students will be excited to receive real world feedback and support of their products and there will  be a People’s Choice prize up for grabs for the teams based on the votes of all those that attend.

Get Your Unfair Advantage In Business

How valuable would it be to quickly understand the tendencies of the person you are talking to, what makes them tick, how they prefer to be communicated with, and how they communicate themselves? 

In business and in all communications the quicker you can do this, the quicker you can get inside the mind of the person you are talking to, the faster you can build rapport, build trust, build confidence, and build relationships.

DunedinTech'18 Conference By Code Craft Dunedin

A short, general, IT conference in Dunedin as part of Techweek 2018 is being worked on.

As members of the CodeCraft group we can help make this happen. The great unknown in organising something like this is whether people will turn up and in what numbers. So this meetup has very few details (on purpose) but, using the RSVP feature, you can indicate your support for the idea early which will be immensely helpful.

OCoC: Creating Compelling Content

Photography and Videography on your Smartphone 

The internet is becoming an ever more visual experience. It is no longer enough to have interesting content; it has to look good too. We know pages of uninterrupted text are a turn off, but so is bad photography. Unfortunately, there is way too much of it. It need not be this way.
