Featuring Catherine Sherwood

Photos from our event in January 2020, Startup and Idea Validation featuring Catherine Sherwood from The Engine.

Our BSNZ community enjoyed a huge welcome to 2020 with a record turnout of business professionals at TomTom on Tuesday 21st. The group consisted of around 60% first-timers to our community and represents a growing and exciting number of people getting focused on making 2020 their best year yet in business.

Catherine Sherwood of The Engine was our presenter, and she took time to share her personal journey from helping people through business creation, staff, growth, international markets and high profile marketing, along with sobering experiences on the challenges that await successful entrepreneurs as they grow. The talk was highly regarded and the event provided a very unique connection opportunity for people to think about their plans for getting business advice as they grow through 2020.

Thanks to everyone who came along last night and supported our first community event of the year. Find the professional contact tiles for businesses who attended just below.
