The benefits of online networking in the Metro North

Fresh National Metro North helps the region’s large community of business professionals to meet and connect with each other.

We’re a business networking group, founded on the principles of ‘More connections, Less Blah’. That means a focus on getting to know, like and trust each other, rather than strict rules about forced referrals. We know that when relationships flourish, so does business.

Our members are busy business owners, leaders and entrepreneurs – people just like you. We’re all busy, with better things to do with our time than travel – so we meet online, every other week. That leaves us more time to spend connecting and helping each other.

The best of online, local and national networking

Fresh National Metro North offers the best of online networking, but as a local group, gives us the opportunity to meet up face to face if and when we feel the need (or want to catch up over a beer or two).

We extend beyond the region too – Fresh National has hubs across Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane. As a Fresh National Metro North member, you can visit any or all of the other hubs’ online meetings too, to extend your network beyond the Moreton Bay Region and beyond Queensland.

Fresh National is perfect for you if you’re a busy professional in the Moreton Bay Region wanting to connect with like-minded people. Don’t take our word for it, why not check out a Fresh National Metro North meeting for yourself. Come along as our guest to a meeting and see how Fresh National can help you extend your connections.

How does this online hub work?

When you join Fresh National Brisbane Metro North, you’ll be the only member in your business category.

Metro North is an area hub, affiliated with the state hub for Queensland. If an area hub has fewer than 10 members, it will take part in a combined meeting with the state hub. You may find that in the state hub meeting, you’re not the only bookkeeper/graphic designer/mortgage broker in the room.

The faster the Metro North area hub grows, the faster you reach independent meetings and exclusive claim to your category.


Our Next Meeting

At every meeting, a member gives a presentation about their business, or a topic on which they are an expert.

This helps us to build the ‘know, like and trust’ that is at the heart of Fresh. By getting to know a member that bit better, we get closer to understanding their ideal referral and whether we can introduce them to any of our contacts.
