Inaugural Business Breakfast Club Meeting Attracts Local Business People

The inaugural Business Breakfast Club (NZ) meeting was held in Nelson yesterday at Monaco Resort, marking the commencement of the new initiative.

The meeting was attended by local business owners and leaders, who have joined the initiative in order to partake in networking opportunities, learn from industry experts, gain access to business focused seminars and workshops, foster camaraderie and support charity.

Paul 'Ernie' Bryant, a Crewman, Winch Operator and BLS Paramedic from Business Breakfast Club’s official charity, Nelson Marlborough Rescue Helicopter Trust, was a guest speaker at the meeting, highlighting the rescue helicopter operations and infrastructure.

Business Breakfast Club Founder, Wayne Densem, says the event was successful and attracted full member attendance.

“Over 30 people came along to the inaugural meeting yesterday, which was a fantastic turnout, showing the high level of enthusiasm from the local business community for the initiative,” says Mr Densem.

“We still have room for a few more people in the Monaco club, and we intend to establish another club in Richmond by the end of the year, so we encourage individuals who may be interested in joining to get in touch.”
