The purpose of our Network Meetings is to bring business owners and high level executives together to connect in person. This provides plenty of new opportunities to build relationships and do business together. The key outcomes that we help members achieve are...
1. Better Connections
2. New Ideas and Insights
3. Becoming More Profitable
"The networking and workshop was great and really valuable for me..."
"I learned a lot in a short space of time!"
"This networking format is a lot better than other groups I've tried."
" I really like that I'm just meeting with other Business Owners... not salespeople and secretaries"
- Members & Guests
It's fair to say that The Local Business Network (TLBN) isn't normal networking... many of our members have commented that some of the networking they'd done in the past felt a bit like "speed dating for business owners!". If you've done networking before then you'll know that this isn't a great way to build long term relationships. Poorly structured networking can lead to a "box full of business cards but no relationships". We don't want that to happen to you!
Here's what Business Owners are saying about why they joined:
- to get better connected,
- to get new ideas about what others are doing to survive and thrive in my business
- to get new perspectives on what you're currently doing in my business
- to improve my word-of-mouth marketing
- to gain referrals
- to meet like-minded business owners
- to get out of the office
- to make sales
- to find good suppliers
- to create new opportunities.
ShowRoom is a Networking Meeting to get better connections between you and other local business owners. Better connections means more Word-of-Mouth Marketing and more referrals from business owners who will all be spotting work for you!
BoardRoom is a Mastermind Meeting to generate new ideas and insights for you and your business. Members work together to help each other with their challenges and what’s working, so that you can get your business ahead!
ClassRoom Meetings are Business education workshops with the focus on helping you become more profitable. You’ll get a workbook on a key topic and learn the best strategies and an action plan to implement!
GENERAL NETWORKING: Prior to the Meetings
Who Attends The Network Meetings?
They're for Business Owners... the people that make the key decisions in their business. This ensures that every person you meet, every connection, is valuable. Whether you're providing products or services to each other, creating opportunities together, or sharing business ideas... there's unlimited opportunity to tap into the people in the room to help you grow your business.
How It Works
The Network Meetings are regular morning meetings held in the same time-slot each fortnight. Usually 7.00am - 8.30pm on a weekday. The meetings alternate between Showroom, Boardroom and Classroom. This way you are well connected with a range of members across the group.
