Fresh Online Hubs meet over Zoom so are the perfect way to network if you are time-poor, but still want access to referral networking groups with like-minded business people to boost your business growth.
Fresh Online offers the perfect opportunity to stay connected and expand your business audience without being restricted by location.
What to Expect in an Online Hub Meeting
When you get into the meeting, you’ll be welcomed and invited into a breakout room to chat informally to a small group of members and other guests.
The formal part of the meeting follows one of several set agendas and always includes time for you to present your business with a short pitch, a networking education segment and a main presentation where you’ll learn more about a member’s business.
What online hub can I join?
Fresh Online consists of state hubs and area hubs. There are three state hubs for Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland.
Area are based on an area within each city. Although we hold our meetings online, having area hubs gives us the opportunity to socialise face to face, and helps foster the strong relationships that are the foundation of Fresh.
If an area hub has fewer than 10 members, it meets as part of the state hub. As soon as it reaches 10 members, it becomes independent and holds its own meetings.
The hub you join will depend on the location of your business.
To make it simple, we’ve aligned the area hubs with Local Government Areas (LGA)
Our Online Hubs
Each hub has a leadership team, with five of the members taking on key roles to help ensure that meetings run super-smoothly and that members and guests get the very best from the Fresh experience. It’s not all down to the leaders though – every member of the network hub plays their part in its success.
The overall leader of the hub, driving the energy of the team. The facilitator is responsible for auditioning new members, keeping the hub on track to meet its goals and leads the closing portion of every meeting.
Leads the first half of the meeting, setting the tone for the morning. Behind the scenes, the co-facilitator collects the metrics that show us how we’re building stronger connections
Every meeting has a member presentation, and some include networking education. The person in this role plans the schedule and introduces the speakers.
Giving guests a warm welcome is an important part of the Fresh experience. The online host is the first contact for guests, and ensures they are introduced to others in the meeting. In addition to the formal leadership roles
Fresh thrives on attracting new people. The promoter publicises hub meetings, schedules speakers and promotes Fresh webinars to encourage more people to come along.
Members are the very heart of every network hub. Our members bring their energy and commitment to every meeting, share their expertise, support each other and welcome guests.
