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.

    Following the success of September's meet-up we have settled on...

    Tuesday, October 9th at 10am
    Hackney Hotel - 95 Hackney Road (ie near the Torrens River bridge)​

    Neatly designed to miss school holidays and be a perfect 'back-into-business' event.

    Newcomers welcome.

    Parking is easy.

    A friendly, casual chance to network and unwind with other businesses / solo-preneurs.

    In diary - fingers crossed. Although I must say, if it always going to be at the Hackney, the chances of me being able to get there are minimal.

    Cheers

    Hey Colin - look forward to seeing you there.

    Did you have anything specific you think you might help people with? Can't see much from your FS profile.

    Hey Nicole - I asked at last meeting where people wanted to meet, so of course they all said the Hackney again :)

    Suggest an alternative for sure.

    Looks like we will need a sizable venue though!

    Hey Guys,

    I'll be coming to the Hackney too! It really is a sweet spot in terms of time and location.

    I'm really looking forward to seeing all you guys. It's been ages since I've been on the forums (been a tad busy) but it'll be good to get back into it.

    See you then,
    Sean

    I wasn't at the Hackney to be asked Martin :( mainly cos it's on the wrong side of town for me. I will try my best to get to the next one.

    Anywhere south or west is better.

    But I also understand that people are coming from everywhere and it's impossible to suit everyone!

    Cheers

    Exactly Nicole - it was a biased group to make the decision.

    So get your suggestions in online, because we have had lots of different places and no reason why we can't change venue again.

    I should be able to make it if all goes well.

    Where abouts do you meet in the Hotel?

    Hey David,

    Last time we were in the front section (ie facing the main road).

    We might be getting too big for any of the outdoors areas :)

    Hi Martin,
    Thanks for asking, thought I had replied to you; apologies. Intend to be at October meet-up. Perhaps we could meet for a coffee chat in Adelaide in the mean time?
    I'm at Mawson Lakes, where are you located? I've added you to my friend list.
    regards,
    Colin Slater

    Hi Martin,
    To answer your enquiry, I help people "slay" their dragons and dispel their fears that get in the way of them enjoying a productive, resourceful lives. That keeps me busy and I have many NLP "tools" and strategies in my toolbox that help people. Otherwise I hold workshops for people to discover more about themselves and how to lift their quality of life. I'm a storyteller and an agent of change, some people call them Life coaches. Specialties are health, wealth and relationships.
    No therapy or counselling; I deal with the present and the future.
    If you can fit in a coffee chat, happy to arrange it. North Adelaide Village? Paesano's is good. Give me a call 0419 568 043.
    Regards Colin
