What we'll do

Our meetings are around-table, yet fun and informal with enough structure to ensure everyone gets to introduce their business and maximise networking opportunities.

Each meeting has a promotions table for brochures and give-aways. We have a scheduled business card exchange.

There are two member INSIGHT 10-minute presentations and a 25 -minute keynote which members are encouraged to pre-book. Priority is given to members making their first presentations to encourage everyone to participate.

A Marketing Minutes segment by Local Area Marketing focuses on a key SME or group generated topic advisory.

We take and encourage photos or video during our sessions to promote our networking. The group also has its own Facebook page for members to trial posts, seek advice and network.

The group supports members who support it – so don’t be shy, give us a try.

You will always leave our meetings with new knowledge, support and friendship.

While membership is free, we charge a $15 pp attendance fee that contributes towards the cost of morning tea/coffee and facilities hire. Members also have access to a dedicated Facebook page for posting and a website is planned for early in 2019.

You can reserve your spot via this app and Paypal or by using Eventbrite:

Our two 10 minute INSIGHTS are:
1. Managing "You".
There are three parts to management - managing the enterprise, managing the people, and managing "you" - the manager. And it's this last part that we tend to overlook, regardless of the size of our enterprise. John will introduce you to the seven skill areas that "you" may need to give some attention to. And he will sprinkle in some 'skills essentials' along the way.
Speaker - John Groarke - Principal of JEGMC & Senior Partner, Find A Consultant.

2. Podcasting.
This new initiative launch will demonstrate how podcasts can help businesses to communicate and engage with existing customers, prospective customers and Google.
Speaker - Tony Skinner - Managing Director - Clicks for Profit.

KEYNOTE: How to Keep your Business and Life Thriving.
Is your business and life thriving? Are you experiencing optimal health? Come and find out how you can improve both and get that optimum performance we all want.
Speaker: Gek Sim Ting - Business Consultant- Shop.Com

Our 60-second individual promo video shoot will be available at the end of the meeting. Bring along your best faces and a sense of humour - this promotion is for everyone (if you haven't done one yet).

Since we have settled into our new room, please arrive in time for a 10am start as we have much to do including individual networking!!
