Waikato Business News: Venus Network

Waikato Business News

The women’s-only networking group Venus has appointed its next leaders for the two Hamilton groups.

The Venus Network is a community designed to help women achieve profitable, sustainable growth in their business. Hamilton has two Venus networks: Cityside (which meets on Thursdays at the Novatel) and Hamitlon North Hamilton (which meets at the Kingsgate Hotel on Wednesdays). Meetings run for 60 minutes and start at 9am.

Helen Jarman – a banker from SBS Bank - is the Facilitator for Cityside is supported by Letitia Buckle, a virtual assistant from Quintessential Concierge.

The Hamilton North group will be facilitated by two coaches; Julie South of HaloBiz coaches businesses in social media & digital marketing and Jennifer Myers of 10X Hamilton in business strategy and execution.

"Venus is one of the most dynamic and beneficial networking groups I've ever been a member of" says Hamilton North's Facilitator, Julie South, "this group is blessed to have one of Hamilton's networking maestros in its midst: Jennifer Myers. I'm looking forward to the challenge and excitement in moving this group forward"

Memberships within each group are limited to ensure meetings can be facilitated within the hour timeframe allowed. Only one professional member per business category is permitted in any group at any time to ensure there is no conflict of interest. The Cityside group is currently full, however, there are a few vacancies within Hamilton North for select business categories and women who’re interested should contact Julie South at
