Local business owners who are interested in making contacts and sharing ideas are being encouraged to attend a networking event to be held in Tooborac next week.
The Mitchell Shire Rural and Small Townships Business Network will meet for the second time on December 13 at the Tooborac Hotel and Brewery.
The evening will be a chance for business owners to celebrate the year, share stories of success and share what they have learned.
Mitchell Shire Mayor Rhonda Sanderson said businesses in rural parts of the shire were craving these types of networking events.
‘‘The feedback Council received from business owners at the event in July was that they really valued these kinds of events,’’ she said.
‘‘They are really keen to have a space where they can connect with one another, catch up with like-minded people, hear what other businesses are up to and learn from each other.
‘‘That’s what’s so great about this network. It’s relaxed, informal, everyone is welcome and it presents some great opportunities for our rural businesses to develop ideas and concepts that could ultimately improve their business or help it grow.
The networking event is on from 5.30pm to 7.30pm on December 13 at Tooborac Hotel and Brewery, 5115 Northern Hwy — light finger food and a drink will be included.
