BNZ EPIC Connect is held on the last Thursday of each month in the EPIC BNZ Lounge. It is a great opportunity to network with like-minded business people, share your experiences and vision and make new connections.
There is an interesting speaker each month; they are often business people like you and usually provide Connect guests with a special offer on their product or service.
The event is scheduled to run from 12.30pm to 1.30pm. However, many guests make use of the opportunity to network and meet new people afterwards. Light refreshments are served.
If you are interested in being one of the monthly speakers, please contact Wendy Rockhouse by email email@example.com, phone 03 343 5727 or mobile 021 820 536.
