Don your best heels and meet like-minded women in business
Social media has in many ways taken away the necessity to connect with people in business on a face-to-face basis, which may streamline certain practices but on the other hand create a void in human interaction that we perhaps crave for before technology took over our current working world.

Luckily, real life networking groups exists to reconnect business minded women in a social gatherings around the country. Business in Heels is one such Australian networking group connecting sassy business ladies with a brand new online networking site as well as real life networking events.

Starting out as a small monthly event held in Sydney in 2013, set up by former Theatre Producer, Jac Bowie, the concept soon grew to what is now a worldwide networking phenomenon with over 36 Business in Heels locations across Australia as well as New Zealand, United States, United Arab Emirates, Singapore and Thailand.

I received an invitation to attend a Business in Heels Melbourne Bayside Event which proved to be a far cry from your average stuffy business affair, and opened my eyes to a lighter, fun and far more enjoyable way to network with like-minded ladies.

Business in Heels Melbourne Bayside Events take place in a private room in a popular Brighton night spot, where all attendees receive a voucher for a glass of bubbles on arrival, plus nibbles, a goody bag, informative talks by guest speakers, plenty of time to mingle and fun door prizes. (drop your business card in the box on arrival)

First, there is a chance to enjoy a drink and get to know your fellow companions over the course of the evening. Tarnya Cook runs Business in Heels Melbourne Bayside Events and warmly welcomes both new and existing guests. Tarnya, former Executive Assistant and Mother-of-Two, soon burnt out after years working in the corporate world, and now focuses her attention to Business in Heels thriving Melbourne Bayside branch.

Most ladies attend Business in Heels Melbourne Bayside Events on a monthly basis, forming a group of friendly business women that rekindle at each meeting. Having said that, new faces are welcomed into the group, mingling in a sociable, easy-going environment.

A little under an hour into the evening, ladies rests their heels as Tarnya introduces the invited guest speaker to present, offering a chance for the group to interact and ask questions.

While still seated, a business card is randomly selected with the card owner then taking the limelight to introduce her own business concept to the group.

The evening completes with a chance to mingle a little more and enjoy some nibbles before door prizes are awarded, including a prize for the best heels!
