Events: Today, Tomorrow and Wednesday

I haven’t been invited to one office Christmas party this year *bursts into tears*. That would be a hint, guys. (EDIT: It worked! Rachel Slattery rescued me from social death 🙂 )I wonder if The Silly Season corporate bashes will be a thing of the past, if Gen Y all work for themselves? Anyway, here’s some non-Christmas parties. The unChristmas parteh?

Pitchclub is fun.
Pitchclub is fast paced.
Pitchclub is NOT a spectator sport!

See what happened on Tuesday 18 September 2007, at Pitchclub’s Melbourne event…

I think it will be like WebJam or Ignite, but for pitching to VCs. Don’t you just love the way the world is speeding up – if you can’t say it in 140 characters (Twitter) or 3 minutes powerpoint (WebJam), don’t say it.

I’m going to invest in technology free holiday camps. Check your laptop, phone, ipod at the door. Now do some push-ups!
