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.

Look out for the following BA5s in 2020:

February - Cancer Society

March - Fi Innovations

April - Miss Tradie

May - Southland Farm Machinery, Metalon South

June - Emergency Management Southland

Healthy Families BA5

Healthy Families Invercargill hosted their BA5 at the award winning Blue River Dairy premises last night. We heard from Suzii Chen, Managing Director, on how proud they are to have recieved the Westpac Healthy Families Invercargill Workplace Wellbeing Award this year. Her and the team have implemented some fun and exciting ideas to create a culture which engages and allows them to look after themselves and each other in the workplace. They understand the importance that wellbeing has - they have been able to achieve this in such a large and diverse work force.
