What’s on in October 2021 for Networking and Skills Development?

A way to build your confidence and networking skills is to go along to relevant events and Meetup groups.

There are many events on every week and sometimes it can be too much, or you might not know which activities will provide the most value.  And whilst different topics, locations and themes will appeal to you and not others, here are some suggestions of Adelaide based and online events coming up this month.
