What we're about

Do you have a business in the Health and Wellness sphere - or work with clients in this area?

Do you live in Sydney's Hills District and surrounds?

Do you love the idea of mingling with like-minded and inspiring individuals at a small and casual business networking event?

Then this group is for you!

I've built some fantastic connections along my business journey with people who've supported my goals and become friends. They've become a fantastic referral network as well.

Located at Arthur Street Cafe, Baulkham Hills, the aim of the monthly Hills District Business Empowerment Network (HDBEN) is to create a space to encourage these interactions.

It's completely free to join (but I recommend bringing some money for coffee/tea and/or yummy breakfast) without obligations or scary commitments.

The group has a very relaxed vibe and welcomes a range of guest speakers each month to talk about business and personal development.

It's a great opportunity to build potential collaborations with others in the Health and Wellness sector.

Together, we can share our goals and progress, learn from one another, become inspired and empowered, and build strong relationships.

I look forward to seeing you there. :)

9th June 2021 Meet Up

Arthur Street Cafe


You're invited to our 9th June 2021 Meet Up! :)

We'll be alternating between Tuesdays and Wednesdays this year to allow a broader attendance. The events will be roughly 4-6 weeks apart - so not necessarily the same week of the month.

In the meantime, you're invited to join our free Facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/HDBEN
It's a great opportunity to build relationships in a 'safe' online space before meeting face-to-face. Perfect for newbies or those nervous about networking!



At HDBEN we're all about meeting and mingling with like-minded small business owners in the Health & Wellness space. Together we share goals, provide encouragement, and discover new ideas (and potential collaborations.)

We're all about building connections first, clients second.

We're a friendly bunch as well - with new people always welcome.
We start the virtual sessions by introducing ourselves, followed by the presentation.



I've organised a special $5 deal with the cafe. So upon registration below, please pay to secure your spot. That will then pay for a coffee/tea/other beverage to the value of $5 upon your arrival.

After registration, please ensure the date and time is cemented into your diary - or provide 24 hours notice if you're no longer able to attend. ;)

The great news is - we're no longer restricted with numbers under our booking - so the more, the merrier! 🙂



Does Shiny Object Syndrome (SOS) leave you needing to make an SOS distress call?

Entrepreneurs especially suffer from SOS as we are constantly generating and open to new ideas, and of course, there are always new tools and platforms to use to help (or in some cases hinder) your business.

In our upcoming Meet Up, we will cover:

- what is Shiny Object Syndrome (SOS)
- why SOS can be awesome!
- why SOS can be costly to your business and your health
- 10 top tips on how to treat SOS

You will leave the session feeling more in control of your SOS, with no medicine required!



Jane Tweedy is the founder and lead trainer of FAQ Business Training, with a mission to educate and empower small business owners to DIY or outsource with confidence through accurate, topical training.

Jane started FAQ Business Training after hearing many stories from the 1350 plus business owners she has met as a NSW Government Funded Business Connect Advisor for Western Sydney Business Centre. Too many stories involved clients being ripped off or ripping themselves off.

Jane listens to her clients needs, undertakes in-depth learning and tests what she learns with her businesses and her clients before sharing knowledge with you! If you’re after a real-world solution for your real-world problem, Jane is here to help!


I look forward to re-connecting or meeting you!
