Hi Nyree and April

Thanks so much for the networking function last night. It certainly made me realise how much I have missed coming along, I haven’t been all year due to circumstances (sometimes something just has to give). I will put it higher on the priority list for future meetings.

Love the Connect concept and having the opportunity to speak with someone for that 5 minutes one on one about their business, I found that more helpful than trying to talk just a little with everyone, and as always the introductions to the businesses at the start is always great as you then know who you need to talk with.

Many thanks for your professional leading of the meeting Nyree.

I have been in contact with the Hunter Region BEC for a couple of years now. My first contact with the Hunter Region BEC was while I was only considering starting my own business. At the time Rod visited Muswellbrook infrequently, but the encouragement and motivation I found from any contact with him in those early days really did help me along. Rod and the team seemed to have an answer for every question I had and if they didn’t have an answer on the spot they would get back to me no later than the following day. The introduction of Julie Fibbins at the Muswellbrook office really helped and the increasing number of networking functions out there really makes you feel that you are not alone in business. I am now based in the New England Region and the whole team still provides the same level of support and guidance they did when I was local. Thanks to you all.

Tuff Rock

I would just like to say thank you for the professional support we have received from the Hunter Region BEC over the last five years that TuffRock has been a tenant. Without this support we would never have achieved the goals we developed together in our early days working with yourself and all your staff. Moving from a home base into the HRBEC really enabled us to focus on our business and that has meant Tuffrock is now a well established, profitable small business exporting to eight countries. I would be only too pleased to recommend the HRBEC staff to any prospective clients.

On behalf of the businesses in the Wollombi Chamber of Commerce, I would like to thank you and the HRBEC for their support of the Wollombi Valley Wine Trail in their application to trademark “Sculpture in the Vineyards”. Without your guidance and referral to Thompson Norrie solicitors, this would not have been achieved.

Again, thankyou.

EyeDesign has been working with the Hunter Region BEC for over eight years now, both as our client and as a HRBEC member.

I first came in contact with Rod and the HRBEC in 2001, when I participated in the NEIS program. Having had a successful career in Graphic Design and Publishing, it was time to move on and establish my own business.

The Hunter Region BEC offered me exceptional guidance and support in all aspects of running a business. I was surprised to learn valuable business and marketing techniques I’d never considered.
Today, Rod and the team at the Hunter BEC continue to add their time and expertise to helping EyeDesign move forward positively, with their skills, experience and insights. I would recommend the Hunter Region BEC to anyone wanting to start their own business . . .you’ll never look back.”

We here at Ultra Fridge Monitoring would like to thank Kate Murphy and the BEC for fantastic business advice, the results of which have yielded major benefits and given our organisation inroads into areas that we would never have thought of. The BEC has proven itself to be a most valuable resource to any new business in the Hunter. We wish Kate and the team at the BEC all the best in the future and invite anyone thinking of starting a new business to work with them.
