Hello BGS NZ members.
What a year this has been. A variety of highs and lows for many people in NZ. October looks to be a turn for the better as we all move into level 1. To celebrate, and to re-connect with our fellow BGS members, we are holding the first in-person BGS networking event post lockdown.
A free complementary drink and nibbles for the evening. A great chance to meet new people and connect with fellow BGS members.

Looking forward to seeing everyone.
The BGS NZ Committee Team.
Hello, BGS NZ members!
Do you run your own business, work in an organization, or have a new project you want to share with the BGS NZ community? If yes, we have a NEW OPPORTUNITY for you.
Starting this Friday, we are trialing a ‘PROMOTE YOUR BUSINESS’ initiative where you can promote your business or the projects you are working on.
While not required, it would be great to have a special offering (discount or extra value-added) for BGS members if you are promoting your business.
What makes this concept special is that there is NO ADVERTISING COST paid to BGS. This is one instance where you get FREE promotion directed to people just like you!
Promote your business will be open on both the BGS NZ Facebook and LinkedIn pages each Friday. So be sure to add your links and promotions on both social media platforms!
Have a great day,
BGS NZ Alumni Committee
