Networking Focus on Tradies & Home Based Business
The Cooroy Chamber of Commerce hold at least one networking night each year which is always well attended. Their networking event on 7 June has something extra - it is aimed at getting tradies and home based business owners to network with others in the local community.
“The hinterland is home to thousands of home based businesses from tradies to online businesses and often nobody even knows they are there. And because they aren’t located near other businesses, they often aren’t as linked into what is happening in their local area.
“With one of the current business trends being to buy local to help support the local economy, we thought it would help to hold a networking night specifically aimed at getting home based businesses to network with each other and other businesses,” said Seb Vecchio, President of Cooroy Chamber of Commerce.
“I think it is a great idea. I operate as a sole trader and the building industry is definitely slow at the present time. I’ve developed some great networks at past functions and have found that I’m getting lots of referrals through these relationships at present whereas many others are struggling to find work. I think it is a good idea for any business,” said Cooroy carpenter Darran Taylor.
The Sunshine Coast Regional Council has also got behind the concept, providing sponsorship as part of a broader “Connecting Business Connecting Communities” strategy of the Cooroy Chamber which is aimed at strengthening ties between Eumundi, Cooroy and Pomona.
The new look Cooroy Website – www.cooroy.com.au which has been recently redesigned and upgraded will also be launched at the networking night.
The networking night is at 6pm on 7 June at the Cooroy Bowls Club and is only $10 per person which includes finger food, goodie bag and a lucky door prize. Alcohol is available for purchase. RSVP to Tania Stewart on 5447 6028 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
