Stages dating mingle
We design experiences to suit your needs – it could be a one-off event to get your employees out and engaging with their customers face-to-face or a longer term programme that aims to embed a culture of customer closeness in the heart of your organisation through both events and capability development. One-off events designed to get an organisation out and mingling with their customers.
This could be as part of a conference, a ‘back-to-the-floor’ activity for senior leaders or as a kick off to an important project.
The team already has another event planned due to demand.
Eighteen people aged 65 and older were invited by the University of Canberra to test their pick-up lines and banter in a Senior Speed Dating event.
“It seems that there is a need out there for people who are approaching retirement or who have just retired to make these new connections, independent of where you live or independent of your gender,” Castro De Jong said.
The event was inspired by thirty seniors from Rochester, New York, who signed up for speed dating exclusively for 70- to 90-year-olds.
Prompt cards were handed out to inspire conversation.
Dr Daniela Castro De Jong, lecturer in occupational therapy, said the University of Canberra team hoped to create an opportunity for elderly Canberrans to meet others with similar interests who may be able to then spend more time together.
