Your Business by being Informed and Inspired
Our group is a catalyst that brings like-minded business operators, from Manningham and the surrounding areas, together as a supportive networking service.
We provide a friendly, professional focal point to promote business and personal success.
Manningham Business Network Incorporated (ABN 44 234 699 461) is a Not for Profit Association.
Manningham Business Network is like no other network I’ve experienced.
Its foundation of learning and growing creates a nurturing environment to do just that, learn, grow and build relationships.
Ever since joining Manningham Business Network just over a year ago, I have enjoyed all the meetings and feel my business has grown so much because of what I have learnt along the way. I look forward to each and every meeting and especially listening to the diverse range of fabulous speakers we hear from each month. I especially enjoy our members forums too, this is where we all share ideas and help each other grow as community minded businesses. Such a great network to have found in the Manningham area. I couldn’t be happier.
I love attending the Manningham Business Network Open Meetings. I love the way each month there is a new speaker, who brings something interesting and useful to the table. As the owner of a small business, Costumes without Drama, it is great to have access to such interesting, relevant information. I ALWAYS come away inspired, ready to make positive changes to my workplace.
The Members Forums are also equally if not more rewarding… so much to learn, so many ways to learn it.
We are different to other networking groups because we are about getting to know each other, learning from each other, sharing knowledge with each other and watching the trust and relationships grow. As a result of that, referrals organically occur, joint ventures, strategic alliances and partnerships naturally occur.
I can’t tell you enough how much I get out of our MBN group and I am delighted to be a member. As our Treasurer, Peter Nash, has said, it’s all about the friendships made along the way ….. so true.
Always wonderful to have the opportunity to catch up with past and
present Members and Friends of the Manningham Business Network Inc.
I have been a member of the Manningham Business Network Group for over a year. I have found it is a great way to connect with local businesses & have external support for our businesses being Accounting & Financial Planning. We are established in business & are continually evolving so MBN contributes to this through further learning from the open meetings speakers & visitors, & a variety of members businesses. The members-only meetings allow me to get to know the other members businesses & how they can work with our business. I highly recommend MBN for a small business owner or nominee.
It has been great to see your work more closely and the outcomes and the effort you and your team makes is great. I congratulate you all in what the Business Network is doing.
I joined MBN over a year ago when I was looking for a new community to connect with and get to know. MBN was very easy to integrate with, they are very welcoming and inclusive. I have met some incredible business owners I would otherwise have not and also had the honour of working with some of them.
Councillors are meant to have a lot of interests. I have purposely chosen “small business” as I feel they play a very important role in the economic advancement of our municipality. I am member of a Ministerial advisory Committee about small business and I am taking steps to steer Council in considering this area as a priority.
Please pass on my Comments to the board of MBN and feel free to approach me if you need my assistance.
Having just clicked over our first year in business the MBN members have been a great support in sharing this journey with us.
Interesting speakers on relevant topics, the opportunity to network with other businesses, words of wisdom shared in closed meetings and just a kind word of encouragement make it worth getting up early on a Tuesday morning!
It’s great value for our investment.
I want to express my thanks to the network for the excellent presentations. Last Tuesday’s presentation from fellow member Luke Dam was exceptional. I drove away thinking that there is so much wisdom and experience within the MBN group that it is always a pleasure and honour to attend.
The Members’ Forum sessions are really valuable – I was thinking of the cost to organisations to hold workshops of that standard to be presented to staff and how lucky we are to have that expertise provided as part of our membership.
Thanks again for inviting me to present at your April Open Meeting.
I was super impressed by your generous and supportive network and was very grateful to everyone for making me feel so welcome.
