Hello and Welcome,
Details of this week's meetings are below.

Tuesday 24 May - Main Meeting - 5:30 - 8:00

We have two great presentations for you this week!

Yes, it will mean squeezing our normal segments up to 6.30pm, when we'll hear from GoCatch, to take a break at 7pm and at 7.15pm to hear from Vivid Wireless, but it's all good!

Here's the skinny on our first presenter, which is then followed by our second:

Ned Moorfield is the Co-Founder and CEO of GoCatch, Australia's leading on demand, smartphone-based, transport booking and payments platform. GoCatch has built a strong national presence and recently launched Australia's first locally-owned ridesharing service in Sydney, with plans to expand the service to major Australian cities.

With $8.5M in funding secured to date, including from investors such as Paul Basset's Square Peg Capital, along with Tank Stream Ventures, GoCatch is one of the major emerging success stories in the Australian Startup Community. Ned will share how he built a network of over 35,000 taxi drivers and discuss some of the latest developments in and his hopes for the future of Australia's ridesharing industry.

Attendees will also have the chance to win a $50 GoCatch credit and - an extra surprise.

Claude Brown, General Manager of Vividwireless will be presenting about the company’s early beginnings and current expansion, including the transition of its 4G internet technology from WiMax to LTE network.

He will also discuss the key value proposition of the brand and an overview of its product and services. Participants can have an insight of how Vividwireless customers can access the internet within minutes of receiving their modem.

Vividwireless will be have some shirts, pens and 2 x portable power banks too.

So - see you on Tuesday night for a jam packed main meeting!

Friday 27 May - Digital Photography - 9:30 - 12:00

At this meeting, we will continue with last month's theme of enhancing a selection of your photos using Paint.NET or a similar program. These enhancements might include straightening, cropping, colour correction and more. Bring your handy-work along on a USB stick for all to discuss and enjoy.

There will also be time for Q & A and general discussion as well.
