A “full house” of 40 keen networkers came to our third session at the Microsoft Innovation Centre in Adelaide to hear entrepreneur Richard Sellar describe how he is continuously searching for opportunities to build his advisory and consulting business.
Members were given a short report on the results of a survey exploring “entrepreneurial behaviours relating to opportunity recognition”. Those who completed the short online questionnaire had received a personalised benchmark report, and these showed that the group as a whole scored lower than expected on the dimension of “idea networking behaviour”. This result demonstrated the need for, and value of, the SeniorPreneurs network to fill this gap. Numbers continue to grow with 174 members on the SeniorPreneurs Adelaide Meetup website.
