IT’S called Club Wednesday and membership is free and open to all in the business community.
The Club Wednesday business networking evenings are resuming, with the first to be held at Quest Warrnambool next Wednesday.
Warrnambool City Council economic development and grants officer Annabel Cussen said the monthly event was a great way for the business community to come together in a relaxed environment.
“It’s open to anyone in the Warrnambool business community and it’s free,” she said.
“A different business hosts the event each month and we have a presentation from someone involved in business or a local community group.
“It’s an opportunity for members of the local business community to come along and meet some new people, have a chat and a drink.”
She said next week’s event would feature a presentation from East Warrnambool Rotary Club about their successful hole-in-one fund-raiser.
“They had a corporate cup-style component of the competition and it’s a great, fun way for local businesses to get involved in fund-raising,” she said.
“It will also be a fantastic opportunity to tour the facilities of the Quest Serviced Apartments and see all it has to offer.”
The program is run in partnership with 3YB/Coast FM, whose general manager Peter Headen said it was a great way for members of the business community to get together.
“It’s a relaxed setting, there’s no commitment to raffles or any other costs,” Mr Headen said.
“It’s a great way for business people to get together and discuss any issues they may have or to come up with some new ideas.”
Club Wednesday will be held at Quest Warrnambool next Wednesday between 6pm and 7pm.
