History

In March 1998, Ron Pollock, formerly of the Wyndham Economic Development Unit, organised a breakfast meeting to discuss the "Millennium Bug."  Do you remember all the worries about what was going to happen in Y2K?

This very informative meeting presented a great opportunity to network with local people from a variety of backgrounds and business interests.  On asking for details of the next Council networking meeting the reply was 'network meetings do not work in this area, Wyndham people do not support them so no more are being planned.'

It was this statement that inspired the original committee led by Annette Webster to start what we now know as Wyndham BizNet. Ron offered his services to organise a 'structural committee' and this dedicated group held the first structural committee meeting on 19th May 1998 to set the ground work. The inaugural official opening meeting was held on the 28th July 1998 at the Master Wok restaurant. It has grown from humble beginnings, with predominately female members to become one of the most recognized and valuable networking groups within the area. The original committee worked tirelessly to establish the foundation of what have today. 

Although the original committee after 17 years; has now been replaced with a new committee, the values and ethics have not. Wyndham BizNet is dedicated to ensuring all members and non-members are made to feel welcome and valued. We the new committee continue to strive to ensure each seminar is relevant and informative. 

We have a variety of businesses in various stream from Trades to Finical Services to Manufactures. Our members are a mix of small to medium/Large business within the city of Wyndham. All our members are valued and we invite all guests to come and see what we know is a wonderful evening and supportive network. By working together we promote ourselves, each other and our local business community.  Most of all we have strive for a balance of a relaxed atmosphere and the ability to connect with other business associates.

2019 February Seminar
Tuesday, 12 February 2019

VENUE
Hoppers Club
180-200 Pannam Drive, Hoppers Crossing
VIC 3029

Happy, healthy and wealthy 2019 and may it be our best year yet!

On behalf of the committee we all hope that you had a lovely Christmas with your friends and family and hopefully found some time to relax and re-energise for what we hope to be a successful year for all.

Our next function will be held on Tuesday the 12th of February 2019 at The Hoppers Club, located at 180 – 200 Pannam Drive Hoppers Crossing.

We will be starting our year off with inspiration and motivation with our key note speaker Mr. Braith Bamkin.

As the owner of two successful BNI regions in Melbourne, Mr. Braith Bamkin has worked with thousands of small to medium sized businesses to grow their business through referrals. It’s fair to say over the years he has come to learn what makes some businesses more successful at business than others. One key attribute stands out; being clear on your target market. As a Professional Referral Network Business owner, he also speaks on the subject of connecting with your target market through the power of networking and referrals. Along with covering other aspects of business we will discuss:

Do you know who your dream client is?

Can you describe in one sentence who you want to work with?

Are you clear on what problem your business solves?

Braith has developed online courses, in person immersion workshops and keynote speaking engagements across Australia, New Zealand and South-East Asia. We look forward to welcoming you back in 2019 and what a year it will be!
