    Event description

    Welcome to the May 2024 Hills District Business Network event building better business relationships.

    This week's meeting will feature a keynote that exposes the risks of buying property as part of a family or business partnership and how to set up such partnerships. It will also discuss stress self-care strategies for business owners. 

    Business INSIGHT - Stress and self-care for Business Owners.
    Anxiety and depression for business owners are often caused by having to comply with unreasonable standards, relentlessly over-filled schedules and the ceaseless daily demands of business, home and family. It's a seemingly endless ride on the rollercoaster of modern-day living. 

    The negative energy you generate by constantly rushing to get things done keeps accumulating, you are on perpetual overload and your physical well-being can respond in adverse ways. But there are coping mechanisms. This INSIGHT will explore and help you implement stress management to improve your life and that of those around you.

    Parents wanting to help their children to buy a property or become involved in a business partnership risk losing their own home or property if a "good faith" style arrangement fails at any time during the mortgage or ownership period.

    This keynote will expose the risks and what you should do to ensure your is set up correctly to protect you, particularly if you intend using your home or money as collateral.

    Our networking group is designed to help you on your business journey by introducing you to like-minded business owners. We provide a welcoming and friendly environment for you to showcase your business and build good, solid and profitable relationships.

    Potential clients/customers will always buy or refer others to those people and businesses they have a good relationship with. 

    We facilitate those relationships in a friendly environment where everyone has a voice and opportunities.

    In addition, we run Small Business Knowledge programs, provide individual business research programs and mentoring. We also proactively market your business via our Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn and Twitter social media platforms to help you achieve maximum success.


    Hills District Business Networking is part of the Local Area Marketing & Networking Group (LAMNG). The Greater Western Sydney group operates in the Hills district, Parramatta, Blacktown, Penrith and the Lower Blue Mountains.

    All groups meet monthly in alternating weeks. You can attend the group of your choice or move around our network to expand your business network in a familiar environment. Our Blacktown group meets on a Wednesday evening from 6.30pm; Hills District from 9.30am; Parramatta group from 9.30am (New venue pending); Penrith and the Lower Blue Mountains from 9.30am. 

    Each Group has it's own Facebook page where you can advertise your business, keep up to date with group promotional posts and keep in contact with other members. (You must be a regular group attendee to receive access. Behavioural standards apply to all groups).  Blacktown | Hills District | Parramatta Penrith & Lower Mountains


    All attendees have the opportunity to introduce themselves and their business. Depending on numbers, introductions are between 30-60 seconds - so it would be a good idea to make a note of the key points you want to make!

    You get to meet like-minded people, exchange ideas, learn, socialise, collaborate, gain knowledge, form new relationships, get fresh business ideas and tips and, of course, expand your introduction-based business network.

    Whether your business is shop, office, industry, home based or in a shared space, you will meet motivated owners and entrepreneurs to share your passion and grow your business with.

    Our online and face-to-face meetings are identical for all groups. They begin with:

    (Nervous about presenting? Don't worry - we will coach you through it.)

    Unlike many groups, we do not charge a membership or joining fee. Instead we charge attendance fees for all online and in-person meetings to cover costs and ensure small business owners are not dissuaded away from business networking by cost.
