EVENTS that allow small businesses to get together and share ideas, contacts and other useful information are becoming increasingly popular in the Clarence Valley.
Called Co-working spaces, they are set up for anyone in the Clarence Valley that telecommutes, works from home, freelances, consults or in some way works or creates in isolation.
Clarence Valley Mayor Richie Williamson said Co-working spaces gave local businesspeople the opportunity to get to know other small business operators, build relationships or, for those considering starting up, to get some valuable peer support.
"If you're starting to think you need a change of scenery, would like bounce some ideas around or just converse with like-minded people, consider Co-working," he said.
The Co-working spaces rotate around the area and are held at different venues. People are invited to bring a client along, enjoy a coffee and join presenters for the next meeting in Maclean.
Where: Botero Espresso, 275 River Street, Maclean
When: Tuesday, October 7, from 10.30am
Bookings: email@example.com or 6645 0228
