Great opportunities to grow your business, meet other business owners, learn more about being in business, and build your own business networks.

Network Meetings

The Business Trust usually holds three meetings each month: BizNet, Lunch&Learn and BizBreak. BizNet and Lunch&Learn are opportunities to hear from speakers on relevant business topics, as well as to connect to other businesses. BizBreak is a great chance to do some relaxed networking over coffee at our offices. You are welcome to attend all or any of the meetings and can register online.

Follow us on our Facebook page for regular updates about our events, or email us on if you would like to be added to our newsletter list to keep up to date with whats on.

 "Thanks again for providing such an epic space for networking and quality korero to unfold. It was awesome to spend a little more time with you both and certainly was the highlight of my week."

Astiana Trouland, Hauora Coaching


"We've been running our business in Nelson for the last 6 years and still find the NTBT Network meetings invaluable. They are an amazing opportunity to meet other small business owners and potential clients, exchange ideas and get advice. The Biz Net and Lunch & Learn talks are always relevant and we have often used the services of the speakers."
