We understand that networking at large events can be a daunting task, so we want to create more opportunities for you to get to know the business community in a smaller less intimidating setting (compared to our BA5s).
This is a regular series of breakfast networking events being held around the region.
Come along if you are a new business person to town, or an existing business owner looking for support and better visibility for your local business.

- Geoffrey Campbell
Geoffrey found that small businesses generally don't have marketing presence & can't afford a full-scale agency. There was a gap in the market to be able to upskill small businesses with the basics of marketing, to get their brand out there and grow them to a point where they can move on to marketing agencies and take their business to the next level. The Why Marketing upskills small businesses to market themselves, which is achieved through a variety of marketing channels that are free or low cost. We will help set-up social media accounts correctly, analyse current marketing strategies and create a marketing plan that utilises as many marketing channels as are relevant to your industry. Also, we supply promotional items, corporate gifts, banners and flags and more to raise the brand awareness of as many small businesses as possible in the Bay of Plenty area.
With private offices and shared desks available on a casual, part-time or full-time basis, BloomCo also has meeting rooms & spaces for small events or classes. With all the amenities you would expect in a professional office environment (excellent WiFi, height adjustable desks, ergonomic chairs, free parking and tea/coffee etc) the focus is on providing flexibility, collegiality and networking, all in a very special atmosphere.
Bring plenty of business cards for the prize draw and networking.
About Business @ Breakfast:
These networking events are to be held once a month and have limited numbers, to give you a chance to enjoy a more focussed, supportive networking environment. It will also be a place to get to know the wider Chamber team.
This series is a new event, and we would love to hear from local businesses that might like to host one of these breakfast events at their place (or any suggestion/feedback you may have).
To have your say or put your business forward for hosting, please email our Events Manager Anne Pankhurst on firstname.lastname@example.org.
