LUNCH BOX FORUM: GIOVANNA & PAUL SHAKHOVSKOY – Networking: sometimes the hardest, always the best thing you can do for your business

Giovanna and Paul are two of four siblings who started Brisbane’s biggest ‘escape the room’ business. Since opening in November 2014, Escape Hunt Brisbane has seen over 40,000 people through their doors, and hosted 350 corporate groups.

In February 2016 the siblings started a second company, Directors of the Extraordinary. This venture focuses on creating completely new game-based adventures that they can take to corporates, schools, festivals and the general public. All four siblings have caught the entrepreneurial bug and are excited about disrupting a tired market. The team are constantly pushing themselves to be better business owners, and hope to take their ideas interstate and internationally.

Giovanna will share her thoughts on why entrepreneurs need to network, as well as her tips on how to do it well and how to follow up. Be inspired by her story, and take away ideas for your own business journey.
