Melbourne South East

Melbourne South East

Fresh National Melbourne South East is for business professionals in the City of Casey and the City of Greater Dandenong in Melbourne’s south east. The South East is a hub of activity and growth, with the City of Casey being one of the top ten growth areas in the whole of Australia.

The South East is home to over 550,000 people, with Dandenong being one of the most culturally diverse municipalities in Victoria. It’s a young area, with a median age of 36 in Dandenong, and an even lower 34 in the City of Casey.

Casey is home to over 26,000 businesses, employing 86,000 people, whilst Dandenong has fewer businesses at 17,500, but they employ almost 100,000 people. Of these businesses in Dandenong, well over half are small businesses turning over less than $200k, so with opportunity to grow.

Construction and transport and logistics between them account for almost half the jobs in Casey, with retail, financial and insurance, real estate and professional and technical services also well represented.

The benefits of online networking in the South East

If you’re a business owner, leader or entrepreneur in the City of Casey or Greater Dandenong, Fresh National is for you. We’re an online business networking group helping people like you to connect with other professionals in the area and beyond. You’ll get to build trusted relationships with your fellow members, expand your network of contacts and help to support each other’s businesses.

We know you’re time poor, so we hold our fortnightly networking meetings online, saving you valuable time (not to mention the cost of travel and a café breakfast). You spend less time in traffic and more focussing on getting to know your fellow members.

The best of online, local and national networking

We’re part of the larger Fresh National community, with hubs across Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane – as a Fresh National South East member, you can visit any or all of these to grow your network the length of the eastern seaboard.

Although we hold our meetings online, members of Fresh National South East are local to Casey and Dandenong, so when we want to have social get-togethers or business meetings face to face, we’re not travelling for ages to do so.

Fresh National South East is perfect for busy business people who want to extend their networks, learn and develop, all with a lot of fun along the way. Why not come along as our guest to a meeting and see what Fresh National South East can offer you.

  • The efficient way to network for busy professionals
  • The best of online and local
  • Build strong relationships
  • Know, like and trust – no forced referrals
  • Expand your network – in Casey, Dandenong and beyond

How does this online hub work?

When you join Fresh National Melbourne South East, you’ll be the only member in your business category.

South East is an area hub, affiliated with the state hub for Victoria. 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 South East 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.
