RRF 2023: Offsite Networking Event
Thursday 16 March, 2:15pm – 4:30pm
In response to your thoughts and ideas, this year we have included a special offsite networking event. This will further support opportunities for stronger connections, for building working relationships and provide time to listen and talk with others about what is working for them and how they are growing.
All delegates will be transported via a 10 minute coach ride to and from the location .
Rosby is a working vineyard property, where two passions for art and wine have entwined to create a unique sanctuary. This will be an opportunity to relax, connect with other delegates and take part in a range of unstructured activities.
We advise that to make your afternoon a comfortable and relaxed experience:
- Wear something comfortable
- Feel free to bring a sunhat and a picnic blanket
- Grazing platters provided.
