Waterman Business Series – Defining your Focus

By April 17, 2015 April 23rd, 2015 Advice for Businesses

The Waterman Business Centre is located in Melbourne’s south east, providing shared business facilities within this rapidly expanding part of Melbourne. The Waterman Business Centre hosts a fortnightly business networking session, aimed at fostering collaboration and business growth. The networking event follows a unique approach, with three distinct sections. Firstly, a presenter shares a topic, followed by participants being allocated to groups to discuss the topic in further depth and concluding with everyone coming together and sharing their knowledge.

This morning’s topic was Focus, identifying the need for business owners to articulate their core value, rather than spreading themselves too thinly. The conversation enabled business owners to discuss what focus means to them and how this clarity has assisted in the development of their businesses. The format of the Waterman Business Series facilitates a sharing of knowledge, enabling participants to learn from each other.

The event series is a great example of how business networking can facilitate collaboration and greater knowledge.
