Lessons Learnt in Business – Rise & Shine Networking Breakfast

Start your day with the Ellis Jones Rise & Shine Breakfast Club, for the rising stars among our local business community.

Last month we hosted another successful Rise & Shine Networking Breakfast event with guest speaker Warren Munson, Founder of Evolve. Warren gave insight on the lessons learnt in business throughout his career and shared the highs and lows of launching and scaling a successful business. He highlighted the importance of staying true to your founding principals which can sometimes get lost along the way.

The second part of the morning was focused on the importance of communication which was demonstrated via an engaging exercise that had everyone up on their feet and moving around the room. Despite the early start, everyone was enthusiastic and there was a fantastic buzz in the room.

The room was split into teams of 6 people. One person from the team was given an image which they then had to describe to another member of their team, that second team member had to pass on this information to the next member of the team and so on (like Chinese whispers). The final person to receive the description of the image had to recreate and draw the image based on the information provided, testing the effectiveness of the rest of the team’s communication. Safe to say there were some…interesting drawings!

Ellis Jones Rise & Shine Breakfast Club is a networking breakfast for junior professionals from all areas of business. The event provides an incredible opportunity for peers to connect with like-minded individuals and build working relationships and a network of contacts.
