2013 AWOM Feedback

Hi AWOM’ers (and not-yet-AWOM’ers alike)!

AWOM is always looking for ways to improve for the benefit of our members. For that reason, each year, we are going to have a very short questionnaire that asks you what you think of AWOM, what you think of the events, what you think of our online presence, and what you think we could do to improve.

We promise, it only takes a couple of minutes but helps us incredibly.

To sweeten the deal, all of those who enter go into the running to win a one month run as “Featured AWOM Member” and all the perks that come with it!

Feedback about Breakfast Networking at Cafe Piatto

Adelaide Word of Mouth Rundle Breakfast NetworkingWell, we tried something new this morning.. And we think it worked! Adelaide Word of Mouth Speed Networking!!

At this morning’s breakfast we saw a great turn out of 60 AWOM’ers who got quickly sat down and experienced our first attempt at speed networking. The rules were simple: You can discuss absolutely anything you’d like as long as it’s not business, service or product related. Members instead discussed what they might have been known for in a previous life, what hobbies they have or even what they did on the weekend. A true following of AWOM’s mantra: “People first and business second”.

It’s important to us that Members meet each other, and get to know each other instead of being handed a business card or by being given a “hard sell”. We’ve long felt that networking is meant to build relationships and even friendships, as opposed to being a soapbox to advertise a product and this is a testament to that.

So what did our Members think about it?

This time we’re doing things slightly differently: We have the usual feedback form below which we would sincerely appreciate you take the 60 seconds required to let us know what you thought in private. But in addition to that we have a live poll for the first time.. One that all members can add their comments to and see results live!

Feedback about AWOM Goes to Lunch @ ETC

AWOM Goes to Lunch at ETCWell… You asked, we listened and it was a great success!

Today we held our inaugural AWOM Lunch event at the amazing East Terrace Continental. It booked out in minutes, and the turnout was fantastic. We had just over 20 people there for lunch for the hour (and many stayed for much longer afterwards).

Thank you to all those who tried out AWOM for a lunch-time event, you proved that this is what Members would like, and showed how effective lunch-time networking can be.

Be sure to keep an eye on AWOM, as we’ll be sure to have plenty more of these events in the near future!

Were you there? Please take 60 seconds to let us know what you thought!
