Are you making use of your local and regional business connections? Do you want to explore mutually beneficial business opportunities with other businesses in your area? If you’ve answered yes to either of these questions, then Connect is for you.
Connect is where businesses meet businesses, and the next Connect in Jindabyne is being held on Thursday 18 May, at Rydges Snowy Mountains from 5.30-7.00pm.
“You never know who you might meet or what opportunities for your business might arise at Business Connect meetings in your area,” Jindabyne Connect organiser and owner of SixFive Pty Ltd, Duncan Isaksen-Loxton said.
“Not only can you meet a new person or business but you can often find out something new about the people and businesses you already know in your area.”
Connect is an informal and productive one hour monthly meeting which includes local business owners speaking about their business in a short one or two minute pitch. The pitches are designed to share opportunities and challenges, a need for partnership or business ideas and experiences.
There is also government information available at each Connect, with the goal that the meeting is a central location to find out about what government support is available. This might include government grants or mentoring opportunities, for example.
“Connect meetings are really a ‘one stop shop’ for local businesses,” Mr Isaksen-Loxton said.
“You can engage with other businesses for potential partnerships, speak to council and government representatives, or simply ask questions about challenges and potential opportunities. You really do get out of it what you put in.”
The speaker line up for the 18 May Jindabyne Connect meeting at this stage is: Lisa Mathes - Lake Light Sculpture, Michael Henley - Property Overview, Kim Northwood - Snow Season Central website and Manuela Berchtold - High Country Fitness.
Meetings are generally followed by refreshments and networking to share ideas.
