Small Business Spotlight Networking Meeting

About this event

You have come to the right place!

We would like to welcome you to a Small Business Spotlight Networking event. We are looking to do what we do best, that is help small businesses connect and grow. Running a business on your own is hard work but having like-minded business owners for support makes it a whole lot easier, we want to make networking a little less stressful for you.


If you are looking to grow your network, make new friends and get business it would be great for you to join us. Hopefully, the group will be the right fit for you.

Networking is the #1 way to grow your business. People do business with those they know, like, and trust. Networking is based on building relationships and referrals. This is not only quicker and essential to building relationships, it is also vital if you want your business to be successful. We provide you contacts, bring your pen and paper and let the “magic” begin. Let’s spotlight your business. Sponsorship available, just ask.
