I've been attending BIH Bayside for just over a year now and love it! I'm not a great networker but the evenings are fun and relaxed and have a great atmosphere, it makes it so easy to meet new people. I've made some great business connections and some solid friendships - add to that a glass or two of bubbles and it's hard to find a reason not to go each month!
If you’re not used to it, speaking to a room full of people can be daunting. Especially when you have to speak about yourself.But when I presented at Business in Heels (Bayside), it was fun. I was speaking to a room of like-minded business women who are all facing similar business & life challenges to me. I could feel their support, just as I had willed my support to speakers in the past. Everyone there is interested in what you do, who you are and how they can help you. It starts at the door, with a warm, friendly greeting and finishes when you walk out with a bright red goody bag full of gifts, ideas and connections.
I came across Business in Heels in an online ad looking for Branch Directors right when I was looking for the next step in my career and soon took on establishing and growing the Melbourne Bayside branch with the supportive help from BIH. In the two plus years I was with Business in Heels, I was lucky enough to be part of the team that helped turn it into a well known networking brand for sassy women wanting to connect with other like minded women from all backgrounds. Watching women come together at events I held, seeing the wonderful connections they created was such a fulfilling experience as well as building my own network of amazing, creative and collaborative women. I highly recommend Business in Heels whether you are looking for a networking group to be part of or looking for a business of your own.
I have to say that I love the networking and safe environment for creating connections Ballarat Business in Heels provides me. Everyone is friendly and interested in your business in a non-competitive way. There is a great sense of community here and I would highly recommend coming along for a meeting.
