Networking AFTER 5

First launched in 2008, Networking AFTER 5 is now a mainstay of Chamber networking opportunities.

As the No. 1 Networking Organisation in the Ipswich Region, our Networking After 5 events provide our members with the opportunity to network with like-minded business people in an informal setting. These complimentary bi-monthly events also give our members the opportunity to promote their business and form stronger relationships with their current customers, meet potential customers, suppliers and establish a network of support services for members to create and maintain a dynamic business environment.

Featured Speakers

The Chamber offers a range of breakfast and luncheon events throughout the year featuring entertaining and informative guest speakers from the wider business community. Previous speakers include:

  • Ita Buttrose AO, OBE

  • Martin Whitaker – CEO V8 Supercars Australia
  • Rod Camm – CEO Skills Queensland
  • Patrick Snowball – CEO Suncorp Group

The Chamber’s breakfast and luncheon speaking events are very popular and often sold out well before the RSVP date. All are welcome with Chamber members receiving the added benefit of a discounted ticket price.
