Networking MeetUp for Business Owners
What's being said about the Ocean Network?
"...a fabulous new networking group: Ocean Network in Woody Point. What a breath of fresh air!
A serene location at The Belvedere and super friendly welcome"
The Ocean Network is a new MeetUp Group founded by local business owners Leanne Blaney, Tenielle Dorling and Kirsty Fields for members of the business community looking for a networking opportunity that
The Ocean Network caters to people who may not be able to attend morning or evening sessions regularly by providing alternate times each month. Meeting at The Belvedere, Woody Point on the second and fourth Tuesday mornings of the month. Guests and members are able to arrive from 7:15am.
At this time, minor costs are consumed by the group Founders in partnership with The Belvedere - the home of celebrations, and therefore your attendance is free.
For business owners looking to network in a wholesome and successful way, there is nothing better than face to face networking to gain referrals for business to business success. Connecting with other business owners is an excellent way to promote your new business directly to a community of like-minded entrepreneurs.
Events like this provide an excellent service for home-based business owners also, as they are an external outlet for those who may struggle with the 'office within my home' scenario. Home-based business owners also often work with other service-based providers that they can connect with at groups like this.
The group was initially started in 2017 as an online opportunity for Redcliffe-based businesses by Kirsty Fields (Social Ocean), but due to requests it was than opened to the greater Moreton Bay Region. Within a similar time frame, it became apparent this need was recognised by lots of other community members and a barrage of Facebook groups were created. These actions indicated the interest in quality connections locally.
Though the Ocean Network Founders are local business owners based in our city, the Tuesday MeetUp group is open to all business owners young and old alike, from any industry and does not discriminate against the format of your business.
There is no need to feel time-poor, with MeetUp options provided outside general office hours to encourage attendance.
In addition of being a place of referrals or recommendations, the Ocean Network looks to create a supportive group to casually provide advice, tips, motivation and even accountability for those who are a business of one and finding the life of business lonely at times.
Members are encouraged to bring forward topic suggestions for Pop Up Events which will commence in 2019, allowing interested parties to join the Ocean Network during business hours as well as Showcase Events for those speakers who are more suited to present at their own premises.
Interest in applying to be a guest speaker is also an option. Please connect with one of the Founders of the group (listed below) or submit your application with required information for consideration by the organising committee via the Guest Speaker button (below).
