'Speed Dating' to Grow Business Relationships and Increase Profitability

Sunshine Coast businesses will have the opportunity to make valuable business contacts that can expand sales and improve access to business growth services. The B2B 'speed dating' networking event is happening on Wednesday September 24th 2008 at the Caloundra RSL new Sunshine Coast Function Centre.

An initiative of Caloundra City Enterprises, now trading as Sunshine Coast Enterprises, the networking event follows a proven business speed-dating format. The high energy and novel format requires participants to speak for two minutes each to their business 'date'. They then move on to the next business 'date'.  The idea is to match businesses to other goods and service providers so they can explore potential business synergies, and form new business to business relationships.

Caloundra City Enterprises Chair, Mr Bill McDonald said facilitators would also be on hand during the evening to offer support and ensure the event runs smoothly.

" The facilitators are  there to provide businesses with the support they need to race through the format and win new business at the end. Its fast, high energy and face-to-face"

"This event is back by popular demand" said CEO of Caloundra City Enterprises Ms Gerrie Carr-MacFie. "I never thought I would be involved in a dating agency- but that's what this event is about- matching businesses to other businesses so that we contain and grow employment and business growth opportunities right here in our region."

A feature of the B2B event is that businesses attending Caloundra B2B will also have access to a database providing further valuable networking contact information.

"After the first date businesses can form an on-going relationship with a view to finding new suppliers, new contracts and new customers. It's a bit like looking for love in your own backyard. So often businesses source supplies outside our region, because they are unaware of the local capacity. Speed dating for business is about market awareness and growing industry capability" said Ms. Carr-MacFie

Tickets to Caloundra B2B are $20 per person. For further information telephone (07) 5493 6211.
