    Thank you for putting on such a very good evening. :)

    Apart from the fact I had pole position for parking tonight (A first time win for me I tell you) I thoroughly enjoyed the conversations and sharing of knowledge.

    It was a surreal moment there for a while when I first arrived to hear people talking the same 'lingo'.

    I stood there listening for a while to these wonderful words - parking, buying, selling, domainer, monetising, obsession, thousands of names, hundreds of names, adsense, affiliates, retired, husband and wife team, telcos, made money, wish I made more money, food domains, pet domains, betting domains, finance domains, dot.com's, dot.com.aus, australian name space, opportunity.. ... it was like music to my ears.

    So rarely do I ever go out, unless I'm talking to clients. My life is very insular when it comes to do things outside work, and of great personal interest, and I felt comfortable amongst those very successful people who kindly shared their knowledge, and inspired by those who have been very successful, over time, in using domain names as their vehicle for revenue.

    Sure I might be naive in some areas due to my lack of experience, but I felt that all the people I spoke to were genuine, fun and loved the domain industry. While a few were hedging their comments, for the part, were more than kind with their time to share their thoughts and answer questions from many of us who new to this. Thank you.

    So Cooper Mills and the great sponsors, thank you very much for putting this together. It was an excellent evening for me and many others, and I feel I've met some people I'll contact again over time because they're just damn nice and interesting to talk with.

    The champagne was delicious as were the platters of food that kept coming out until in the end, I had to stop. But I gave it all a good go I can tell you!!

    For those of you who did not make it to tonight's event, make sure you keep your eye out for the next one - you will enjoy it.

    Regards
    Nina

    Yeah thanks Erhan & Kim especially for getting this together.

    Was a great night - few no-shows but total numbers around 70 was very impressive.

    Sydney next time

    Good on you Erhan for putting this together. I was sorely disappointed at not being able to make it last night and hope to attend future Melbourne networking events.

    Agreed - fantastic event and I learnt something new from EVERY person I met and had a chat with.

    Been buzzing and looking to implement a few ideas now!

    Thanks to Cooper Mills Lawyers and Netfleet for sponsoring the event.

    And yes David, a Sydney networking event would be nice - I'm sure we can outdo the Melbournians ;)
