A Business After Five (BA5) event is an informal occasion to network while expanding your horizons and knowledge of other businesses.

BA5 events are generally hosted by a member organisation and present the opportunity for the host business to promote themselves and their services or products. In the past these events have been held in factories, offices, museums, workshops, warehouses, TV and radio stations, training centres - even on ships at Bluff port and boats at sea. BA5 events are usually free for members to attend but occasionally there may be a minimal cost.

Please contact us if you are interested in hosting a BA5, it is an excellent way to showcase your business.

McLeay Precision Engineering (MPE) BA5

What a great night we had at the McLeay Precision Engineering (MPE) BA5 last night. On arrival guests were offered the opportunity to warm up with a hot beverage from Andrea who was parked up inside with the Mocha Rocka Van. Huge thanks to Wayne for a great presentation and to Des & Barry who stayed on to show us some of the equipment in operation.

Wayne finished off his presentation with the following words -

“If I have one message to send you home with - outside of the fact that dealing with McLeay Precision Engineering will enrich your life (lots of laughing) is not to be that trapped mug - train your staff, delegate responsibility, let go a little and make several lives so much richer for it. One day, you will be so glad you did”

Very wise words Wayne - thank you for sharing this valuable advice and for hosting us!
