Gold Coast Networking 2017

Gold Coast Networking Events For Small Business Owners in April 2017

The Gold Coast is home to many a businessman and his dog.  But what about us little guys, and business ladies with cats?  Networking is undoubtedly crucial to the success of any business.  And although we may try to fight it, nine times out of ten who you know outweighs what you know.  But fear not!  Irrelevant information gained from big shot $100 yawn-worthy meetings including one slice of sad rockmelon are a thing of the past.  Here we bring you some of the best networking events for small business owners on the Gold Coast this April.

League of Extraordinary Women

Entrepreneurial ladies unite!  Boasting a laid back approach to networking, this welcoming morning meet-up focusses on real conversations and connections between soon to be, new and long time business owners.  If you’re the type who loves a good chat, has a million and one questions and gets their kicks from hearing stories ranging from awe-inspiring to down right heroic, this is the networking event for you.

Tweed Heads Business Breakfast
