SWEAT’s Adam Koch inspires many at our annual Networking Night

Over 65 guests attended the Electra House Hotel last Thursday night 25th July for an exciting opportunity to not only network and establish new business connections, but to also hear from our special guest speaker Adam Koch, Chief Operating Officer at SWEAT.

Hosted by Chris McDermott, the night began with a quick ice breaker challenge – ‘Get To Know You’ Bingo! This game was a fun way for guests to interact, while also discovering who in the room prefers cats over dogs, who likes to garden, never swears or checks their Facebook daily (guilty!) After a few minutes of chatter, we crowned the winner, who took home a fun food hamper filled with chocolates!

After a fun start, our guests were seated to hear from our special guest speaker Adam Koch. From spinning discs at Chris’s old nightclub Planet in the early 90’s, to the Chief Operations Officer at SWEAT with Tobi Pearce and Kayla Itsines, Adam has had quite an interesting career path. During this time, Little Heroes Foundation was also lucky enough to have Adam serve on our Board of Directors for almost 7 years! We know just how busy this man is, and we are incredibly grateful to him for coming along last week and entertaining our guests with his experiences and advice for navigating the ever-changing business environment.

Overall, the event was a huge success and we have had some amazing feedback from many of our guests. A special thank you to Adam and the team at Sweat for their support of the night, including some AMAZING goodies (pictured) they donated for every guest to take home.
