Ready, Set, Go!
by Philip Scott
Finally the SBN breakfasts have started up again, bigger and better than ever before!
Just as a reminder, SAbonas mission statement: Our aim is to help Southern Africans settle into Australia and to make it their home.
This involves establishing new networks as many people arrive here not knowing anyone, or at least without any sort of support or business network.
At SAbona our aim is to foster new relationships and provide you with opportunities to help you and your business grow.
Is it a network purely for Southern Africans?
We believe that in order to not just survive, but thrive in our newly adopted country, we need to adopt it and its people as our own. Even if sometimes we are not accepted (and do I have a story for you! But to hear it youll need to attend breakfast on Friday morning at the Coffee Club in OxenfordHope Island!)
It is absolutely crucial that we as Southern Africans pull together and help each other. Be our own support network, but not to exclude Aussies! No matter what your view on this matter, we need to do business with Aussies if we want to survive, but we cannot ignore our fellow Southern Africans .. .we all need to band together!
So lets resume our motto of old .. Adopt an Aussie! and bring them along to the breakfast functions! Why? Because they have local knowledge and we can learn a lot from them! If we expand our networks to reach far and wide into the greater Australian community were all so much better off!
