Business Improvement NetworkMacedon Ranges Business Network Group (MRBNG)
“This is a great opportunity to work on your business (not just in your business). This local business improvement group shares ideas as well as networking to help members grow their business.”
– Dean Kennedy
Improvement network for businesses
Although Kennedys Accountants service businesses throughout Victoria Kennedys Accountants is based in the Macedon Ranges. With this in mind Dean thought a great way to assist his local clients and other businesses in the Macedon Ranges would be to establish an active business network.
So together with a local client Leigh Tomkinson of Macedon Essential Business Services Dean founded “Macedon Ranges Business Networking Group” MRBNG. As the group has grown and developed, this has evolved to become a business improvement group through the sharing of ideas and developing relationships with fellow businesses.
Your Business Growth
Some of the advantages of the group are:
- Information sessions to help you grow your business
- Increased exposure to many other people and businesses.
- Substantially increased referrals and sales
- The meetings get you motivated for the day and remainder of the week
- 30 other businesses looking out for your business each week
- A network of friendly businesses to discuss business with
- Power groups tend to also form eg in health or financial services
- Helps with personal development – eg public speaking
- And much much more!!!!
The group is based on the old word of mouth referral principles but with a structured agenda, regular fortnightly meetings and a few other requirements of the businesses who attend business referrals just happen.
It’s all about building and maintaining Business Relationships and Creating New Business for all members.
We hope to inspire, motivate and assist with businesses and individual challenges. Lots of fun, education and motivating too.
Dean established the group as a not for profit group just like a football or netball club so as to keep membership fees to a minimum.
From the members
You might be surprised by how rewarding it can be to attend regular meetings, share ideas, insights, tips, contacts and experiences.
These are some comments from some of the MRBNG members
'I was encouraged by a business mentor to find a group and tried 18 different organisations before I discovered MRBNG. This vibrant group of local business owners was where I decided to focus my valuable time. I leave each meeting feeling rejuvenated and focussed on my business. I recommend it to anyone who wants to grow!'
