We enjoyed our 6th After 5s networking Drinks event for 2022 on the 21st of July at the Miranda Hotel. Venue kindly sponsored by Miranda Hotel.
This event attracted a great crowd, perhaps it was the central location or the fact that everyone is tired of staying indoors. Networkers enjoyed the return of speed networking this event, as well as an incredibly informative presentation by Heather Locker from Sullivan Dewing on how to remain Financially Well Organised in business.
Casey from the Red Cross Life Blood Donor Centre also joined the event to deliver education and encouragement to business owners on why providing blood donation as a team event is good for the health of a business.
