Byron Networking Group (BNG) is a group of local businesses that help each other find new customers. BNG meets for breakfast every week and, through a structured format, the members learn about each others businesses and what type of ideal customer each business is looking for.

This approach of everyone helping each other rather than everyone looking after themselves reaps great rewards. Instead of having just 1 sales person in the room working for you, the BNG system means that everyone in the room is a sales person for you and you are for them. With more than $3 Million in referred business last year, this system is clearly working.

At the moment the group has vacancies for the following businesses:

• Accountant

• Air Conditioning

• Automotive - Car servicing & repair

• Bookkeeper

• Builder

• Catering - Catering Supplies and/or Events services

• Couriers

• Employment

• Financial Planner

• Fitness / Gym / Personal Trainer

• Graphic Designer

• Insurance
