Goulburn Connect – Friends in Business gaining momentum as a business networking event

Posted 23 October 2017 in Media Releases

Goulburn Connect - Friends in Business met on The Deck at the Goulburn Workers Club last Tuesday night. Kylie Isbester, Think Recruitment, welcomed everyone and introduced the guest speakers.

Heni Hardi, Manager Client Services at Goulburn Multicultural Centre and Zumba Fitness Instructor spoke about her Zumba classes. Zumba helps to boost your metabolism and strength in a fun and effective way. Different classes are available to cover various fitness levels, including a new class for older people.

Ashleigh Pakis, Panache Financial Mortgage Specialist, talked about the benefits of having a broker negotiate finance on the customer’s behalf, saving the customer time, stress and money. She explained that brokers work on behalf of their customers not the banks.

Jacquie Howard has many years of experience as a Dance Instructor. Jacquie had arranged a very special guest, Chloe, to dance for Goulburn Connect – Friends in Business.  This presentation gained Chloe first place at Wagga Wagga recently.
 
The event on Tuesday night was well attended, with the warmer weather encouraging people to socialise.

Local business woman Alex Ridley, who is currently transitioning between projects, attends the meet up to maintain her business relationships and network with local business owners.

“It is a great space to bounce ideas off - I really like the open, supportive environment”, Alex said.
