Localised Meetups: all about the people behind the business.

90+ local business people came along to Barwon Water on Friday 29 March 2019 for our second Meetup for 2019.

It was great to see so many businesses networking and letting others know what they do. The Lightning Pitches were a highlight with 20+ locals pitching their business.

We heard from Give Where You Live, GROW and Barwon Water on how to enhance social corporate responsibility, no matter the size of your business.

Thanks to Get More Time’s Les Watson for being our guest MC.
