Networking is an important part of doing business. It is how we generate new business through referrals, build supply chains and identify new opportunities.
Last April, however, any size or type of gathering was banned. We had no idea when or if they would recommence. Even when small gatherings did slowly resume, strict rules about social distancing and food and beverage service made them challenging. While the Chamber was able to recommence Covid Safe networking events in July 2020, many others are only now starting to hold larger gatherings.
Like so many of your businesses, the Chamber had to think about our services, and how we deliver value. We realised that our value lies in facilitating connections, and that meetings and gatherings are a means to an end, not the end itself.
Inspired by so many local businesses who innovated and adapted to deliver value to their customers and communities, we began work on the new community platform that is “Canberra Business Buzz”, developed specifically to connect, inform & empower Canberra’s 30,000 businesses.
You can join a conversation on a topic you’re passionate about, ask questions and find answers to business challenges, and solve other’s problems by sharing ideas and experiences. The Buzz will host resources for business, along with blogs, videos, upcoming events and more.
We built the community to help businesses start, grow and scale in the ACT and Capital region. It is your community, very proudly brought to you by Canberra Business Chamber.
