Back to our birthplace

31 Jul 2012

Back to our birthplace Image

The Docklands News Networking Lunch is three years old and, to celebrate, on September 14, we are taking it back to Berth in NewQuay where it all started in 2009.

The first lunch was held on August 7, 2009 when about 30 local business people gathered at Berth Restaurant to talk about a new networking format which would suit them.

The successful informal model was born and has gone from strength to strength, with the last couple of the quarterly lunches attracting 80 diners.   The focus is on meeting new people and strengthening existing relationships.

The lunch moves to a different venue each time to showcase the best that Docklands has to offer.  Next month will be first time the lunch has returned to NewQuay since it started.

At Berth on September 14, guests will hear a short update on progress from the Regional Rail Link Authority.  The new rail link will bring more people to Docklands as it will improve country and suburban train access to Southern Cross Station.

The networking lunch costs $60 per head, which must be paid in advance by September 7.  To book, email your request to (JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) or ring 0419 547 876. Diners should arrive at 12 noon for a 12.30 start.  Berth is located at 45 NewQuay Promenade.
