Rural businesses prosper through networking
Following the highly successful 'Connect Maroochy' business networking events Maroochy Council's Rural Enterprise Project along with Business Maroochy are set to host 'Hinterland Connects', a unique event that brings together business people from across the hinterland.
Economic Development portfolio chair Councillor Greg Fahey said 'Hinterland Connects' is one way in which Maroochy Council is improving the health and viability of our hinterland economy.
"'Hinterland Connects' will provide Maroochy hinterland businesses the opportunity to meet and spend time with like-minded people," Cr Fahey said.
"From primary producers and home-based professionals, to small business operators and manufacturers, everyone is welcome to come along.
"By improving contacts between businesses, we can help each other grow and prosper."
The event is being held on Thursday, 26 October at 5pm at the Nambour Civic Centre with a workshop to help better understand the benefits of networking and building business contacts.
Following on from the workshop will be guided activities to enable business people to meet, explore common ground and find ways to benefit from each other's experiences and skills.
"Previous networking events hosted by Business Maroochy have attracted more than 300 people each time," Cr Fahey said. "So don't forget to bring along plenty of business cards."
