Silicon Halton Day @ Burlington HiVE

Friday July 25, 2014  |  Burlington HiVE | Drop in anytime 8:30am - 5pm

Picture of a workspace at the Burlington Hive

Here's your opportunity to experience and experiment with co-working. Join fellow members at our monthly Silicon Halton Day at the coworking space in Downtown Burlington, the Burlington HiVE.

Our ideas are products of our environment. They are influenced by the conversations around us.

If you’ve experienced the favourable collisions that regularly occur during the short span of a Silicon Halton meetup, imagine the possibilities during a full day? Collisions are the probable introductions to other local tech businesses or professionals or ancillary tech services. These collisions routinely produce economic and/or professional growth. Can you afford not to come?

Come prepared to do your work. This is not an 8 hour business networking event.  Other than some members meeting for a Peer2Peer group meeting at 8:30am and potential Lunch&Learn, there are no other planned structured activities during the day.

Lunch & Learn? Maybe

Choose your own window

What time you spend at The HiVE is your decision. Come for an hour, the morning or afternoon, just for the Lunch & Learn, or all day. Come in, find a desk, get to work.

Meetup #58 – Networking Un-Meetup

Aug 12, 2014 | Burlington Hive, Burlington

NetworkingUnmeetup

Eventbrite - Silicon Halton Meetup #58 - an Un-Meetup

Our un-meetup theme is Networking: Collaboration, Partnerships, Referrals, and Career Growth.

How It Works

We allot four 30-minute timeslots for presentations and/or discussions.  Any un-meetup attendee can provide a lightening presentation  to pitch their topic (2min max, no slides) - The proposed topic must relate to the Networking theme.

The audience will then vote on the topics that interest them most. This will be fun and engaging, not a simple show-of-hands - even the voting process contains networking.

The top 2 topics will immediately begin in parallel as 30-minute sessions. Next, a short break, then topics 3 & 4 in parallel. If you don't like the session you voted yourself into, vote again with your feet and move to the other session.

By the way, the person who suggested the topic must either present, facilitate, or a blend of both. 

We previously used this un-meetup format at Meetup #10 (August 2010) and Meetup #33 (July 2012) and both were extremely successful and engaging. See the Meetup 10 or Meetup 33 blog and pix.
