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.

VENUE
The Phoenix Hotel
40 Wallace Avenue, Point Cook
VIC 3030

Our next function will be held at The Phoenix Hotel, located at 40 Wallace Avenue, Point Cook.

We are privileged to have a guest speaker from beyondblue. Tim Stewart is a volunteer speaker for beyondblue, a national organisation that works to raise awareness about anxiety and depression, reduce the associated stigma and encourage people to get help.

Tim became a beyondblue speaker to share his many life experiences with anxiety, depression and attempted suicide, as well as coming out as gay in his early 50’s. His purpose is to offer hope, recovery and build resilience to those who are affected by mental health conditions, along with their family and friends. He also wants to offer hope and support to the LGBTI community.

Tim will share his journey of hope, recovery and resilience in the face of depression, talk about what beyondblue does and how the audience can seek help or support a friend or family member who may find themselves in a difficult position.

Let’s get together and enjoy a relaxing night and enjoyable dinner at The Phoenix Hotel.
