Looking to pick up some tips and tricks on the art of successful networking this holiday season? Then you might want to drop in on the event BNET Australia will be hosting with the Australian Institute of Management (AIM) in Sydney on December 2, 2009.

It's being held at AIM's event space in North Sydney, and starts off at 5pm with a free "Accelerate your Networking" panel discussion, hosted by BNET's Phil Dobbie. You're also invited to attend a Christmas party directly after the discussion, at 6pm, where you can test out those newly acquired networking skills (admission to the party is $20 for AIM members and $45 for non-members).
