1. Golden Rule: Be nice, respectful and avoid self-promotion.
    We pride ourselves on being the friendliest forums around. Check out our full guidelines and tips for new players.

    Please note: In addition to this section, we have a page on Meetup.com where we’ve collated a number of regular, independently organised events that are likely to suit our community. We’ve even written our very own our Flying Solo Guide to Meetups.

    If you’re looking to start a meetup, by all means post here, but bear in mind Meetup.com may be more effective.

    Promoting Networking Events: Our guidelines are clear on blatant promotion…this is not the place to flog tickets or to advertise events or workshops (even free ones) that are staged primarily to promote your business.

    That said, we acknowledge that the community benefits from hearing about relevant, professional networking groups and occasionally, particular events. With this in mind we're happy to consider a one-post promotion of a specific event that clearly outlines its name, location, audience profile and any membership fees.

    Hi Soloists!

    Now that 2012 is well and truly going through it's paces I invite you all to join our regular networking group in South Melbourne.

    The group is open to any business and it's a very relaxed get together. There are no pitches or referrals needed. We focus on developing great relationships to enrich our business network. We help each other out, not just in potential business leads but in friendly advice and discussion about everything and anything.

    We meet every third Thursday of the month, from 6:30pm.
    It's completely FREE and once a quarter we find a valuable guest speaker to share their knowledge and experience.

    Our next get together is this Thursday - 19th January. I know. Exciting stuff ... that's this Thursday ;) Join us at The Railway Hotel, 280 Ferrars St Sth Melbourne.

    RSVP here to let us know you're coming or email me at [email protected] .

    Come one. Come all.

    Belinda

    We'd love to have you! It's a very relaxed affair although we're going to be ramping it up this year so it's more valuable for everyone.

    You'll be able to spot me, ginger hair all spiked up. If you don't see us, you can ping me on twitter @copywritemattrs.

    Cheers,

    I am fairly sure I will be attending, unless something goes wrong that I need to deal with.. it's been quiet this week though.

    That's a pretty accurate response from Brendan! We're usually there until about 9pm. Sometimes we finish up a bit earlier and we've been known to stay later.

    As you can probably tell, it's a fairly relaxed affair :)

    I was getting very excited about being able to contribute to the group Belinda, until I checked my diary. I have a recurring Committee Meeting on the 3rd Thursday of every month, so it will be impossible to make it. Good luck with it though! (Maybe we can share some speakers since our group meets on Monday lunchtimes...)
