Learned a lot about the industry and it was an enjoyable event.

Aug 2016

Was a very important event to go to, I learnt that my business module is on track and felt encourage to continue as I'm practicing. I was surprised to learn that Agents only manage your jobs , they don't exactly source new work for you and you don't necessarily need one if you're proactively organised. My impression of agents was very embellished were I thought if you scored an agent, work would swarm in and you become super rich. ha ha.

Great setup, guest speaker was tilling as we're the panels for the q&a. Thoroughly enjoyed the day, just a shame there was an hour delay in starting.
