8:00 am - 9:00 am

This is an online Member-Only event.


We invite all MBN members to attend the brief Online Annual General Meeting that precedes our Members’ Forum.   An Agenda as well as Committee Nomination and Proxy forms can be obtained by contacting admin@mbn.asn.au.


There is always a need to adapt our businesses to changes in the marketplace.  Whatever reason brings a shift to our circumstances, the need to be adaptable and creative is always lurking in the background.


This month we will have a team of speakers who will lead discussions on ‘Innovation in a time of chaos’ from different aspects … new prospects, changes of lifestyle, following a dream or “unprecedented” tragedies etc.

The conversation topics include :-

  • Looking for alternatives in times of need
  • Innovation in business and being adaptable
  • Anticipating unexpected lifestyle changes
  • Standard good business safeguards


Please join us as we explore possibilities and investigate fresh opportunities.






Would you like the opportunity to speak/present to fellow members and an upcoming Forum?  The value and success of our monthly Forums rests will all MBN members.  So, please register your desire to contribute to one or more of these segments by calling 0421 944 891 or emailing Elaine at admin@mbn.asn.au.



What’s your area of expertise?

Will it help all members to run a more efficient and profitable business?

(Please note: this is not a ‘sales pitch’ for your business!   It’s a time to say this is “how we do it” not this is “what we do”).

Are you an expert in branding, preparing financially for retirement, getting quality leads and referrals, writing winning proposals, getting ROI from networking, performance management of staff, conflict resolution, delivering presentations, maximising tax deductions or writing media releases?

In other words, what knowledge are you willing to freely share with your fellow members that your clients would normally have to pay for?


This segment enables us all to share and learn from each other’s experiences – it’s a time when we can highlight our successes and seek advice or guidance on any issues we might have to hand.

What have you recently learned in your business that could benefit other members?

  • Better ways of managing cash flow or debtors?
  • Protecting your IP?
  • How to effectively recruit and induct new staff?
  • How to minimise bank and credit card charges?
  • A marketing campaign that didn’t give you ROI but taught you valuable lessons?


Do you have a business challenge you’d like to have your fellow members’ give you new ideas about?

Working in small groups, the combined wisdom of MBN members might just help you make the breakthrough you need!


To help members get to know each other and our businesses, this new form of ‘Member in Focus’ will be conducted in a brief interview style. Members under focus will be advised of questions that will be asked beforehand, allowing each interview to then be a short, sharp “get-to-know-you”.  We hope this leads to building trusting relationships and ultimately business growth.
