Lyttelton Harbour Business Association Networking Group
The LHBA networking group connects Lyttelton Harbour based businesses with each other - providing support, sales & referral opportunities and community. It's as interesting and diverse a group of businesses and business owners as you might expect.
We meet every Friday morning.
If you are thinking about setting up a new business, have been going for years or are somewhere in between the two we would love to have you bring your ideas, experience, and dreams to the meetings.
Our meetings start with a talk by one of our members, or a relevant guest, followed by discussion & questions. Often the presentations cover business decisions & advice, 'ice breakers' and issues affecting harbour life & business. We then move into groups of 4-6 and each person has 5 minutes on their business topic of choice
- Intro/opening - What are we here for
