Event description

Welcome to the Penrith and Lower Blue Mountains District business network - building better relationships.

This is the meeting where you can have your 30-second business pitch practiced and recorded to help your marketing by putting the 'u' into business - your business. Introduce yourself to the wider world via a simple exercise - your 30-second business introduction.

If you want to write a draft for your pitch, bring it with you. There will be time at our meeting to draft and practice too plus a recap by master networker, Ralph Rintoule. 

Our Member keynote is simply titled 'Know Thyself'. 

Do you know what your temperament is or do you have more than one? Counsellor Tracy Shirvill, will introduce you to the Four Temperaments and discuss how knowing your temperaments can help you to better promote your business.

There's an update on the Group activities for NSW Small Business Month October and where you can check out other activities of interest.

Plus breakfast, 1-1 business collaborations, great business relationship building and mutual support.

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.

OUR MEETINGS

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.
