Weekly networking in Brisbane’s CBD
At CBD Connect you can join a local business community within the busy, thriving Brisbane CBD.
At our weekly networking group, you can create real connections with like-minded professionals. Conveniently located at Level 25, 324 Queen Street, Brisbane CBD, the Tuesday lunchtime meetings are the perfect interlude to the working week.
Here you can foster a professional network close to your workplace so you can build your business in your lunch break rather than taking time away from clients or family.
NRG’s Brisbane CBD Connect Group is a welcoming environment where you will gather with other business owners to increase your professional development; share your struggles and wins; and, create a referral network that is invested in seeing your business flourish.
Ambassador Katrina Robbins said as a holistic financial planner she had always created a network of professionals to refer to her clients but was looking to build ongoing, trusting referral relationships.
“I love the idea of meeting with the same people each week to help them build their businesses and get to know them very well, so that when I’m referring clients it is based on a personal connection, rather than just ‘someone that I’ve met’.” Katrina Robbins, Ausure Financial Group.
Experienced leadership drives CBD Connect’s success
NRG CBD Connect combines the vision of professional networker Rose Gibbens and financial planner Katrina Robbins, who bring with them over 15 years of combined networking experience.
Added to Rose’s proven referral meeting formula is Katrina’s dream of a weekly group that links professional business owners in the CBD without the superficiality of traditional networking events.
“Our members are business people who care: they are open, respectful and supportive. They consider other people’s businesses ahead of their own and focus on what they can give rather than what they can take.” Katrina Robbins, Ausure Financial Group.
Attending weekly meetings allows CBD Connect members to develop more meaningful business relationships, and even friendships, with their fellow members. Linked with a commitment to success, NRG members understand and value the importance of close business relationships
“NRG CBD Connect is a great opportunity to do business with other small business owners who have integrity. Our members are honest, reliable, and willing to grow relationships.” Ryan Mooyman, Mooyman Electrical Services.
CBD Connect attracts high-quality business people who are dedicated to their personal and professional growth, and enjoy watching other businesses grow, develop, and flourish. Our members want to learn more, both about running a business and the other group members.
Connecting businesses with a trusted referral network
Brisbane CBD Connect is the perfect environment for both seasoned networkers and those that have shied away from the polished glitz of traditional networking environments. Each business category is exclusive, and members and guests are vetted before attending meetings to ensure the friendly group dynamic is maintained.
“All our members have invested their time to contribute to the group’s success. We have giving attitudes and a willingness to get to know each other. Seeing people week-in-week-out really makes you feel like you are on the same page together. Whatever is thrown your way you know you have fellow business people to support you.” Katrina Robbins, Ausure Financial Group.
Business education and quality referrals are key features of NRG Brisbane CBD Connect meetings, and each week features a workshop or talk from experts in a variety of fields. Our members are also encouraged to extend their networks and attend other events, both within and outside of the wider NRG family.
“We are all here to help our members to develop and grow their business. The meetings are a great opportunity to talk to other business people about your ideas, they are more like work colleagues, and I always learn a lot through the business education talk each week.” Ryan Mooyman, Mooyman Electrical Services.
NRG Brisbane CBD Connect Group meets every Tuesday from 12.15pm to 2.15pm at the ‘Ausure Financial Group’ Boardroom, Level 25, 324 Queen Street. Lunch is provided.
