Speed networking event has Mackay campus talking
Published on 19 April, 2013
Staff and students took part in a ‘speed networking' event as part of an initiative hosted by the newly formed Mackay Campus Life Committee on Wednesday, April 17.
While participants were not sure exactly what they were getting themselves into, they gathered as strangers and left as friends after an hour of general conversation.
Mackay staff and students take part in a speed networking eventThe HOT Topic had a total of 20 students and staff seated opposite each other, with three minutes to talk about a whole range of topics relevant to campus life.
The aim of the event was to create a closer connection between academic and professional staff and students, as well as to find out exactly what staff and students like and dislike about campus life.
Participants were given time to take notes, which will be used by the committee to develop a plan going forward.
Given the enthusiasm for the HOT Topic, it is hopeful that this can become a regular event on campus.
