Referrals For July 2021

July was a great month for referrals.  We had over 74 internal referrals within the Club and 46 External referrals (businesses referred to club members). If  the value of a referral is about $1,000, then it is over $100,000 of businesses referred. The third place went to Simon Lowing from HB Finannce,  runner up was Will Hennessy from Lume Electrical and the winner was Marcus Lusty from Splash Bathrooms with 8 internal and 4 external. Great work Marcus.

What we do

Growing local business.

The Business Referrals Club has been successfully growing local businesses on the Sunshine Coast for several years, through providing a proven, effective forum helping its member’s share qualified business referrals and develop cost effective word-of-mouth advertising for their businesses.

“We meet in a spirit of co-operation so that we can develop the knowledge and trust to promote each others businesses. We are committed to honouring any business referral we are given, and undertake to make business referrals a part of our everyday business practice. We understand that if we help someone else, we will benefit ourselves.”

What They’re Saying

The thing I like most about this business referrals group is that they focus on "who you are". The trust that creates is enormous. I'm privileged to be a part of the club

Christopher SlyBusiness Pilot

Every business owner should belong to a business club. There are many on the Sunshine Coast, but the Business Referrals Club is a long term club, and testament to the contribution that members put in to make it a weekly meeting not to be missed.

Hugh ButlerThe Seaweed Man

I like to meet other Business Owners. Working in your own business all the time does not give you good ideas, be challenged and learn from others.

Steve HamblyGuttervac

Getting out into the business community is something all businesses need to do. Get new ideas, meet other business owners, invest in your business and networks. Great crowd, and get pumped up.

Lee PriemBOQ

Really good to have a community of business people I can call on to provide services. From plumbers to lawyers. Enjoy getting along.
