"I'm loving the new format for the BA5, particularly the reminder email advising the businesses attending.  It was great to plan the businesses I could connect with about city labour market shortages and our high numbers of youth jobseekers, and explore potential synergies and opportunities.  I had a 50% hit rate of those I planned to speak with and gained a bonus 25% by meeting other new businesses.  Well done Otago Chamber - I look forward to the next BA5."
