With Richard Hill
An essential component of the successful migration to a new country includes the integration with the business community in which you now live. Having arrived in Australia, or contemplating your arrival, you need to network with the appropriate people sooner rather than later.
The Sabona Business Network (previously known as SA Connections) together with many other Southern African clubs, provides one such avenue. On the Gold Coast, the network has been successfully run for the past 10 years, meeting every first Thursday morning at a South African owned restaurant overlooking the Q1 residential tower and the Surfers Paradise Waterways. For $15 per head, one is able to enjoy a full breakfast including coffee, tea and juice. All attendees have a 30 second to 2 minute session to introduce themselves and their business which is followed by a guest speaker who typically provides invaluable information on doing business in Australia.
This forum is often the gateway to meeting both South Africans and Australians, many of whom have been in Australia for several years and are willing to share their experiences and advice with new arrivals. This can save you time and money, in not making the mistakes that others have made.
Whatever your situation, I encourage you to integrate with your new community which is made up of thousands of migrants and many more Australians. By supporting the Sabona Business Network, you will be part of a group of successful Southern Africans helping their fellow country men achieve this goal.
We look forward to welcoming all new members, so visit our web site: www.sabona.com.au/business
And register your email address so that you'll receive an invite to our next function. You will also find links from our web site to other useful contacts and organisations.
