About Us

Networking in Rotorua, Bayfair, Pāpāmoa & Tauranga.

Successful Networking offers a friendly, non-threatening environment, in which to exchange ideas and share information.

Whether you are an experienced networker or new to the field, we can provide a stimulating, welcoming environment in the Bay of Plenty in which we can assist you to develop your business.  

How it works...

We believe that the people who join our networking groups are businesspeople that have the ability to see more than just what is in it for themselves. They are people, dedicated to their business but they also know that in a network situation if another business around them is doing well then this is also a response to what networking has to offer. We all have networks, no one person is an Island, and a group of like-minded businesspeople can be a force to be reckoned with.

Each week we pose a topic via a question or statement that we hope elicits our members to share their thoughts about the topic, and also how it relates to your particular business. This is a very informal format and can be very enlightening and at times extremely funny. We aim to create a space where businesspeople feel free to participate and express how and what their business is about.

Each week everybody gets 2 to 3 minutes to participate on the topic, but you can also add or communicate with the other members when they are sharing, as they can also do with you. This can create another level within the group meeting and where it ends nobody knows!!!

We also offer spots (although not every week) for members to highlight their business via a presentation to the whole group. This is something that is designed by each member, presenting what they feel is the essence of their business and what the member wishes to highlight and promote within each group. Each member is given a 20-to-30-minute time slot, and these take on many forms and can be as formal or informal as you wish. These prove invaluable in learning about a person and their business.

We feel that one of the most important things is to be not only informal but informed while still being intent on supporting each and every business around the table. The biggest compliment we can get is that each and every member feels comfortable in their participation during the meeting. We are NOT a regimented "this is how it goes Networking group," whose only driver is a solely financial outcome. Some of the best advice you will get can come from within these groups, and it comes from your input and participation. Contribution is reciprocal!!!

To sum it up in 3 words, Connect, Network, Collaborate... The founding principles of Successful Networking.
