The aim of the Shout network is to bring together businesses in the region who can collaborate, support, recommend and do business with each other.
We’re aware that many people have a fear of networking events, expecting to be standing in a corner with no one to speak to, or feeling pressured into talking with people that they don’t know. That’s absolutely NOT what the Shout network is about.
Our approach to networking is quite unique. We’re all about building relationships and trust. People buy from people and that is the whole ethos of our network. There isn’t any stilted conversation or awkwardness at any of our meetings, they’re friendly, professional and provide a vibrant environment which is conducive to engaging with like-minded people and developing your business prospects.
We have an incredibly diverse range of members from a huge variety of industry sectors such as local government, builders, cleaning companies, accountants and marketing agencies. They vary from one man bands to blue chip companies and everything in between.
We run a number of meetings on a fortnightly basis which are single sector only (only one business from that specific sector) in various locations and at different times of the day to provide you with maximum flexibility. We will work with you to identify the group that best fits your business profile and objectives as well as provide the most return on your investment.
Additional to the fortnightly meetings we run a number of joint events where all members plus guests come together. They provide free exhibition opportunities to raise the profile of your business along with a presentation from an inspirational speaker and fantastic networking prospects. These joint meetings regularly attract more than 200 local businesses.
Members are also invited to a variety of social events from golf days, meals out, spa days to comedy clubs. These have proven incredibly popular and are often a complete sell out.
Many of our members frequently comment that through the Shout network they have forged extremely strong and successful business relationships and also some genuine friendships.
