Event description

Welcome to the Blacktown business network that builds better relationships.

Our 4 October Blacktown Group marks the beginning of NSW Small Business Month activities with two themed presentations protecting the health of your business.

How to Get Funded Business Health Checks & Coaching + Why You Need To.

Whether your small business going well or battling difficult business conditions, it would likely benefit from a business health check. As an owner, some business coaching wouldn't go astray either to help you along the way. 

These options are available to you and better still, they won't cost you anything!

This keynote will explain how to get either or both, what's involved, the improvements that can be achieved for your business, and for yourself by having someone to guide you along your business journey.

Cyber Security - Getting it Right for Small Business Owners

The Federal Government is considering changes to the Privacy Act that will apply to all businesses, particularly those with a turnover of less than $3 million not currently covered by the Act. 

This keynote will give you practical guidance on what you need to be doing now to protect your business and reputation, that won't be costly and will set you up to be ready to meet the expected Privacy Act changes.

Our speaker is a cybersecurity training author and has worked as an Online Safety Technologies Expert Advisor with the eSafety Commissioner.

Small Business Month Activities.


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:
1. Opening welcome.

(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.

Every meeting has an attendance fee contribution to catering costs. Group sponsorship opportunities are also open to significantly boost your business profile.

Online meeting fees are set at $7.50 per attendee (Booking fee and GST inclusive). Face-to-face meeting fees (Inclusive of breakfast, morning tea or evening snacks - depending on the Group) $25 per attendee. Blacktown Group (BBN) $17 thanks to the generous sponsorship of Workers Blacktown. (Booking fee and GST inclusive).
