As business starts to settle to a new rhythm at My Networking Club HQ, we’ve been having lots of conversations about how to best serve our membership and our wider community.
Every business is getting used to a brave new dawn post pandemic and MNC is no exception. We’ve been listening to all your feedback at meetings and are now ready, with Carolyn Strand as co skipper, to get on a mission to support and connect both members and the wider community, as we all face the challenges of this new business era.
We are delighted to reopen our public Facebook group, to give small businesses a look at how we do things in the MNC community and connect them and our members. The support and connection in our community is legendary.
Here is a handy guide to our Facebook channels, so you can find out how best to use our groups to help with your business presence to your advantage.
