More About the Brisbane Southside Networking Group

In July 2019 Susan Howard established Brisbane Southside Networking at The Glen in Eight Mile Plains to give small business and professional the opportunity to mix and mingle and make lasting connections.

In 2020 BSN is collaborating with Local Biz to enable growth and to provide further opportunities for small businesses and professionals.

Local Biz Networking Groups was first established in 2017. We want to warmly welcome you to feel part of a supportive local Network Group that cultivates, nourish and helps you grow both personally and professionally. Our Events are about connecting, gaining knowledge, building relationships, sharing business ideas and challenges while being supportive of each other.

When you arrive, you have the opportunity to share your business card and promotional material. Grab a meal, coffee or drink and feel welcome by our members in a warm and friendly atmosphere. We allow each Business the opportunity to introduce themselves. Our Members are divided into smaller table groups that are a more intimate way to discuss, share and collaborate on our Business topics. Each event has Network opportunities to create connections and build relationships with other Local Businesses.

Through our Local Business Networking Groups platform we have designed it so both your network and business can grow and flourish.

A Networking Group that supports Local Business and is focused on you the Business owner.
