New networking event a success

New networking event a success Image

The first Yarra River Business Association (YRBA) and ‘Southbank Local News’ networking luncheon was a huge hit in November with around 70 local workers and residents coming together for food, connecting and learning about the area.

The event was held at Rivers Edge at WTC Wharf and diners had ample time to mingle and make new connections before sitting down for a meal and presentation from Red Rock Leisure’s John Foreman.

Mr Foreman explained the concept of a Chinese New Year extravaganza on the Yarra and implored businesses to get behind the idea.

YRBA executive officer Tim Bracher said the organisation had been pleased with the response.

“We were very encouraged with numbers for the first event and it has confirmed that there is a need for a regular networking opportunity among the local business community,” Mr Bracher said.

He went on to explain that the luncheon, plus other events will become regular occurances for the YRBA.

“It will definitely be a regular event on the YRBA calendar, interspersed with a couple of evening cocktail functions a year as well. The first cocktail evening will be in Eureka 89 during April, to announce the winners of the Yarra River Customer Service Awards.”
