wynnum business meeting

2021 Calendar

COVID-19

The current pandemic is imposing severe restrictions on meetings in person, and we may need to 1) limit attendee numbers for meetings in person and 2) collect more individual information (ie address and mobile phone number) at online registration for contact tracing purposes. Some meetings are also held online.

All meetings are open to anyone who wants to attend, unless indicated otherwise. Ticket prices shown are for non-members. Wynnum Business members get a significant discount on all events.

Light Electric Vehicles …the unsung heroes of transport electrification

Light Electric Vehicles (LEVs) as enablers of business model innovation in urban transport of people and goods

 

 

LEVs can provide efficient solutions for the transport of goods and people in urban environments for existing businesses, but at the same time also can provide the basis for new and innovative business models in areas of hyperlocal delivery and shared mobility.

We are delighted to be joined by Wolfgang Roffmann and Harry Proskefalas of EMoS (e-Motion Concepts). EMoS is a Brisbane company founded in 2016, dedicated to LEVs for the transport of people and goods in urban environments.

The presentation will explore some of these uses and provide an overview of commercial use of LEVs.

Wolfgang Roffmann is the co-founder and CTO. Wolfgang has a long history of working in technology driven early stage companies in medical devices, telecommunications and automotive industries.  Wolfgang has a degree in medical physics from Germany and a Masters degree in Technology and Innovation Management from the University of Queensland.

 

Harry Proskefalas is the co-founder and CEO. He brings a wealth of experience from more than 24 years in business including single/multi-site operations and franchise models from both a franchisee and franchisor perspective, senior corporate and local economic business development and government executive roles. Harry holds a Bachelor of Business and brings experience in developing core strategies and operational frameworks across a diverse range of industries.

About Wynnum Business Meetings

Most meetings feature a guest speaker who gives a (very) short talk – 20 mins – on some aspect of business, information, technology, while you have something to eat. The speaker’s brief is quite broad, and we ask all our speakers to give at least two ‘nuggets’ of information that attendees can go away and implement in their businesses for free (ie you don’t need to engage the speaker’s services!).

In the online booking process we ask you for some details on your business so we can introduce you to the group at the start of the meeting. For breakfast meetings you also order your choice of food and drink when booking (this is of course included in the ticket price) to save precious time at the meeting itself.

Regular Monthly Events

How are Wynnum Business meetings different?
It is clear that many people who come along to business meetings are keen to meet new business contacts, but have limited time available for these meetings, whether during or outside business hours. Some events can also become bogged down in announcements and other business when many attendees just want the chance to meet other business people. Wynnum Business networking meetings are different in the following ways…

  • A short core meeting timeframe (1 hour), but with the option of arriving early and staying after the main event
  • All registration information – food/drink choices (for breakfast meetings), brief description of your business (‘elevator pitch’) and payment – completed online via an online booking system – saving precious time at the meeting
  • Attendance limited in number (generally no more than 30 attendees)
  • All attendees announced (and business description given in registration process read out) by an MC (this takes around 15mins) – so everyone knows who is in the room
  • A speaker (sometimes a current member) talks about an aspect of business they have experienced or are expert in. The rule is that they must not merely ‘spruik’ their business but must give at least two nuggets of information that would be useful to any business and that does not require a business to become a customer of theirs. Talk is for 15mins max
  • Thirty minutes remain for networking
  • Event officially ends one hour after it starts, although attendees are welcome to stay later
  • All networking events are ‘stand up’ events ie cocktail style – if a morning meeting, breakfast includes a drink and eg a croissant/bun etc, after work events, depending on location include a drink and canape style food
  • Meetings are only held at Wynnum Business member locations, and Wynnum Business and the host member split the cost of providing food/drink
  • At least one meeting is held every month – either at breakfast, mid morning, over lunch or after work – and, when events are fully booked anyone on the waiting list is automatically registered for the following event ahead of other registrations
