Blinq or you’ll miss it!

You’re on Wall Street, it’s the 80s. You’re sat across a conference table from none other than Christian Bale (though he goes by Patrick for the sake of this visualisation). He removes a silver case from his pocket and slides across his bone coloured business card, leaning back in his chair.

“Slick” you say, “but not as slick, eco-friendly AND COVID-safe as this”, whipping out your smart phone, pulling up your Blinq business card.

Blinq makes it easy to create and share your digital business card with the people you meet. Once you create your Blinq business card, exchange your contact details via QR code, email or Airdrop and keep track and manage your new relatonships all the while making a great first impression.

Our friends at Blinq have hooked CreativeCubes.Co members up with a 20% discount on Blinq Premium, Blinq Business or the Blinq NFC cards.

All you have to do is…

  1. Go to the pricing page and select the pricing plan
  2. Create your card and sign up or log in if you already have an account

Introducing Holly!

Hi everyone, I’m Holly!

I’m originally from Mornington, down on the peninsula, and I’ve recently moved up to the city! I love to travel and I’ve spent a lot of time over in the US.

Some of my favourite things to do are going to the beach, reading a good book and going for walks and exploring.

I love both AFL and cricket and will most likely be watching either of these on the weekends.

I’ve joined The Happiness Team in Hawthorn and I’m super excited to meet everyone and find the best spots in Melbourne!

I’d love to have a chat with everyone, so please come and say hi!

Help us complete our transformation by answering the survey below – let us know the events you love so we can bring you more that tickle your fancy, float your boat and light your fire.

Have Your Say

Swinburne University of Technology has launched a series of Bootcamp Graduate Certificate courses, developed in partnership with CreativeCubes.Co member, FourthRev.

The courses, an Australian-first, will upskill career changers and provide students the capabilities required to thrive in the digital economy. They are available on-campus and through its online arm, Swinburne Online.

The FourthRev course launch comes following the recent Swinburne University of Technology ‘Work Integrated Learning’ announcement, which committed to providing students enrolling in 2021 the opportunity to gain genuine industry experiences within their studies.

The launch coincides with a heightened focus from the Australian Federal Government on the role of skilled job-seekers following the financial blow of the COVID-19 pandemic, having recently announced an apprenticeship wage subsidy program as part of its multi-billion-dollar investment in skills and training in its Economic Recovery Plan.

In less than two years, FourthRev co-founders Omar de Silva and Jack Hylands have formed partnerships with many of the world’s biggest tech companies, including AWS and Tableau, to create learning experiences that provide a direct pathway to qualifications and employment in the digital economy.
