The spread of the Coronavirus has created serious problems for many Australians. We believe the impact on businesses will be severe. Unfortunately due to the new Federal Governments restrictions on social distancing and non-essential gatherings to prevent the risk of COVID-19 transmission we have decided to regretfully cancel the April, June and August DBNG meetings until further notice.

Our next DBNG meeting was scheduled for 30th April with Federal Liberal MP Dave Sharma as guest speaker. This is now cancelled however Mr. Sharma has kindly agreed to provide us with a video giving valuable business tips on the Benefits of Managing Change and Working from Home. We will send this email and video link to you in the next 10 days.

We are optimistic about the future and will continue to plan, innovate and diversify our connection to DBNG members, Woollahra Council and the eastern suburbs community.

Thank you for your generous support in 2020. We will continue to be active on Facebook and Instagram so please keep in touch and don’t hesitate to ring or email Deirdre or myself if you have any queries re: future networking or business referrals.
