Joe Kowalewski – The Best Marketing Tool Ever Invented

On October 3, 2018, come and see this dynamic speaker, Joe Kowalewski

Our guest sponsor for October is Local Area Marketing, a full-service Western Sydney based agency helping local businesses to cost effectively reach their goals. Guest speaker is the agency’s Chief Marketing Officer, Joe Kowalewski.

Joe began his career as a journalist with News Corp (The Australian) and ‘evolved’ through careers in print media, political public relations, corporate and international marketing and events. He is the co-founder of the Multicultural Marketing Awards and co-author of a marketing manual for SMEs.

He believes that business marketing is always one of the biggest dilemmas for business owners. “What should I do? How do I do it? Will it work for me? Can I afford it?” These are questions Joe constantly deals with.

Ironically, part of the answer is with the marketing solution he is most passionate about, and it’s free! He calls it ‘The Best Marketing Tool Ever Invented’ and has developed it with businesses of all sizes, local government and politicians over more than two decades – so it is a tried and tested formula.

Will the work for you? Find out by attending BBN’s October meeting on October 3, 2018.

Emcee for the evening is Jane Tweedy, BBN Committee Member




Christmas Party December 5, 2018

Celebrate With BBN

Blacktown businesses celebrate Christmas on December 5, 2018 at the Blacktown Workers Club.

After a busy year networking with each other, it's time to celebrate and get to know your fellow business people socially.

Having more than 17 years under our belt and having deservedly earned the title as the "Most Successful Networking Organisation in the Greater Blacktown Area", it's the right time to relax and celebrate.

This meeting traditionally does not have a sponsor and so attendees will pay an entry fee of $10-00 per person to join the celebrations. This means there is no business keynote speaker, just a bunch of fun loving people.

Our emcee for the evening is BBN Guiding Star, Robyn Atkins.
