Where to Network in February
Each month All Hands will share a post of events from around Taiwan. These events will span networking, professional learning, community gatherings, hiring, seminars, happy hours, and more. This will be a living list and is by no means comprehensive. If you know of a great event that should be included, please send us a message to let us know.
*Unless noted, most of these events are in English, but we have not attended all of these series before. You should look into the event if you have any language concerns.
2/5 – 1st MemBEERship Bar Crawl – Join this free pub crawl, stopping at 6 Taipei bars. The MemBEERship card supports both the All Hands non-profit as well as dozens of local restaurants and bars. The crawl is open to all, but the best discounts will be available to cardholders - and the card will be available at the event. (Free)
2/7 – Digital Transformation for Restaurants in Taiwan – During this event, we will take you through some of the key methods that you can use in your business to enhance your operational efficiency, multiply your sales, and open doors to newer market segments and target markets as restaurants in Taiwan. (Free, includes dinner)
2/9 – When Working Out is Work – Fitness professionals go far beyond gym teachers to include trainers, coaches, wellness practitioners and more. Many - but not all - non-Taiwanese in these roles are also entrepreneurs. We'll hear from them about the opportunities and struggles that abound in managing their businesses, clients, and teams. (NTD $300, includes one free alcoholic or non-alcoholic drink)
