The first year Professional Experience Networking Evening was held at the ACPE Campus on the 11th of May 2011.

The students in groups of 6/8 networked with invited sport industry representative in a speed dating style format. This allowed the students to converse with each of the industry professionals and gain insight into to the various career opportunities and skills and attributes deemed as key criteria for employment.

A wide variety of fantastic speakers gave valuable insights to the students about working in each of the sport industries.

The speakers included:
• Brant Best - Swimming Coach NSW Institute of Sport
• Rob Wright - Assistant Coach NSW Swifts Netball
• Jed Kram - Got Game Primary School Sports Programs
• Manu Sutherland Australian Rugby Union Coaching
• Tim Watsford - ARU Event Management
• Matt Baker - Bulldogs Rugby League Marketing Manager
• Brendan Maher - Macquarie Sports Co-ordinator
• Tom Bates - Sydney FC Commercial Operations
• Ali Steadman - Sydney FC Marketing Executive
• Brett Moore - Waratahs Rugby Media Manager
• Dan Canham - Elite Sports Properties - Sports Marketing
Overall the speed networking night was very successful and all students were able to walk away from the night with a great amount of knowledge and many potential contacts.
