A new monthly networking night is planned for both men and women at The Garden Bar, encouraging the local community to get together and get social!
The first night, Men’s Business, took place on 15 November and was open to all men in business from business owners, to employees and managers. Dawn Romanella, Restaurant Manager explains “The rationale behind these new events, is to give the blokes a chance to come down to The Garden Bar, enjoy a beer special and a bite to eat with their work colleagues or friends.
There is a common misconception that Hemingway’s is a fine dining venue, inaccessible to those just looking for somewhere to grab a drink and a light bite after work. The reality is the exact opposite and it is ultimately our relaxed waterfront atmosphere that we want people to experience.”
Men’s Business is planned for every month on a Thursday evening and the team at Hemingway’s encourage local men to come down and enjoy the informal networking event. With happy hour beer specials on offer, $12 sliders and a business card draw, all men are welcome at these regular events.
Not to leave the ladies out, Women’s Business will take place each month also on a different Thursday evening. Wine specials, cheese platters and great company are the offer for the ladies. With women’s networking groups generally being limited to invite only business owner groups, the team at Hemingway’s felt there was a demand to open up their venue for the wider community.
Says Ms Romanella, “There are many women working in business in the local community who aren’t business owners but would love to make new business connections, these regular events can help facilitate that. Women’s business is open to managers, employees and all those self-employed small business owners in the Whitsundays.’’
“If nothing else, it is a great excuse to get the ladies together for a post-work drink and a catch up!.”
Event dates will be posted regularly on our Facebook, Google and Instagram channels with updates on the What’s On page on our website also.
