    We pride ourselves on being the friendliest forums around. Check out our full guidelines and tips for new players.

    Please note: In addition to this section, we have a page on Meetup.com where we’ve collated a number of regular, independently organised events that are likely to suit our community. We’ve even written our very own our Flying Solo Guide to Meetups.

    If you’re looking to start a meetup, by all means post here, but bear in mind Meetup.com may be more effective.

    Promoting Networking Events: Our guidelines are clear on blatant promotion…this is not the place to flog tickets or to advertise events or workshops (even free ones) that are staged primarily to promote your business.

    That said, we acknowledge that the community benefits from hearing about relevant, professional networking groups and occasionally, particular events. With this in mind we're happy to consider a one-post promotion of a specific event that clearly outlines its name, location, audience profile and any membership fees.

    Hi all,

    I have a Graphic Design and Printing business and I'm currently looking to start a free networking group with other business professionals.
    I have been part of a BNI chapter before and would like to form a new group of professionals to meet weekly for breakfast to discuss general business, networking opportunities and pass on referrals.

    My aim is to grow a productive and supportive networking group that can meet up on a friendly, social level whilst still being proactive in our businesses.

    The type of professionals I'm looking for are:

    Accountant
    Builder
    Business Consultant
    Cabinet Maker
    Car Panel Beating
    Car Servicing / Repairs
    Computers sales / repairs
    Debt Collection
    Electrical appliance sales
    Electrician
    Finance
    Financial Management / Planning
    Fitness / Personal Trainer
    Floor Coverings
    Graphic Design
    Handy Man
    Insurance
    Marketing
    Mortgage Broker
    Photography
    Plumber
    Printing
    Property Investment
    Skin Care Clinic
    Solicitor
    Telecomunications
    Used / New car sales
    Real Estate Agent
    Painter
    Building Inspector
    Bathroom accessories sales
    And anyone else who feels they could benefit from or add value to this group.

    Please contact me to register your interest, once a reasonable number of people have registered their interest we will organise a day and time to meet one another.

    Look forward to some positive responses.

    Hi Epoch, that's a great idea as sometimes I wonder about having to pay to network. I have to say though that since I'm usually awake until 3 am, my breakfast is usually at noon!

    Having said that, I'm with Mike on extending the hand of e-friendship and networking in general. As I've found with the referral networks and JVs (joint ventures) I've made, you never know where your next business 'partner' will be found. In short, please add me to your 'mailing list' for further information.

    Oh and while I'm thinking about it, did I miss copywriter and editor in your listing? I'm a writer, editor, designer and marketer so my 'toolkit' covers a few categories. :)

    Hi Epoch & all interested soloists

    You have made my day!!

    I would love to be proactive and become part of the networking group for S.E. suburbs. I love that you want to create something that is free,yet exceptional value for those who actively contribute.

    There is so much value in developing a group where relationship/connection with like minded people is a priority.
    As i have been looking for new networking events, I have found that there are many expensive events, including speakers. I am to the point in my career, where I have had information overload. I am glad to hear of the specific focus that you have for the networking group topics/items.
    Begin with important foundations and this will lead to other opportunities.

    How about posting on the networking world directory (list of networking events) to attract more people to join. How many people would you like to have as a minimum number to commence?

    I am coaching clients in the area of mindset & marketing.
    Attraction Marketing is a study program for small business or home business owners to apply attraction marketing system strategies, to attract clients.
    I coach as a personal trainer in mind fitness, Accelerate results through inner mindpower (children/adults). transformational coaching is the # 1 method to create transformation that translates to permanent change in thinking and acting/behaving excellence (NLP principles).
    This can be in the health & wellness category or Mpower&Passion.

    My qualifications in PsychEd consultation & Coaching Practitioner.

    I am very resourceful, a great connector and love connecting with people who love to achieve in life & business, while still making the most to have fun & enjoy life.

    I would love to have an opportunity to explore the networkng group further & would love to be actively involved in developing this innovative plan.

    Ps my post to Flying Solo today, is on networkig tips!!

    Re: Melbourne Networking Group S.E Suburbs Interested please reply

    Hi Epoch

    To interested soloists

    Will you have a chance to let me know if you are still interested in getting the networking group started.

    I would love to get a networking group started.

    I have seen a few groups that meet at approx 6-8pm. This time may be an option for after business meetings,time for networking and still allowing time at home in the evening.

    Please see my post below Sheree Montgomerie

    Hiya Sandy.

    Well I am in Carrum Downs.
    I have previously been in Networking and Referral Groups.

    You might say it starts with a seed, and to get something going, just needs a small core. First thing is to identify the objective(s) of any group.

    How about on this post we set a date, the geographic region to cover, and a rough idea of objectives. The first "event" could just be a small group to set out objectives (as without these it will go nowhere).

    I suggest an area which covers from near Mordialloc down to Mt Eliza, and across to Cranbourne and Dandenong (but not including Cranbourne and Dandenong). This is just a suggestion though.

    You up for being part of a "start-up" group Sandy??

    To me, Camberwell is a bit too far, but I wish you luck.

    People interested in a group in the South East (more towards Bayside, focal point at Frankstong) - please message me.

    I want to have a first get together this month.

    It will be free, maybe meet for coffee (rather than as a breakfast group), meetings for an hour - to start.
    First business who shows keen interest will lock down the category.
    Second business, will be allowed in a category at the discretion of the "category owner".

    Idea to network, share ideas, spread business, etc.

    Message me.

    Thanks,

    vaughnn
