Kamloops BizLinks

Breakfast Business Networking Club

Bizlinks was started in May 2008 by a group of local professionals looking for a way to gain new clients.   We are a group of small business owners who meet regularly to network, discuss business matters, share knowledge and best practices, and socialize in a semi-formal professional environment.

Meetings are held in the early mornings.  We meet in a restaurant meeting room or similar setting.  A meal is served at each meeting.  The gatherings generally last an hour to an hour and a quarter.  We are currently meeting at Frankly Coffee – 437 Lansdowne St. every Thursday morning at 7:15 am.  The introductions start at 7:30 am.

What happens at the meetings?

Meetings generally keep to a standard format and are somewhat formal to ensure the business mind-set is maintained.  The routine will not vary significantly.  At each meeting, during the meal, each member will be required to do a marketing minute, which should include the following info:

  • Who you are
  • What your business is
  • Where your territory is
  • What would be a good referral for you
  • If you have a ‘memory hook’ don’t forget to use it

To keep every meeting fresh and educational, Bizlinks varies the meeting content with:

  • Guest Speakers from the Business Community
  • Attendance and representation at monthly Chamber Socials
  • Participation in Book reviews
  • Discussions on General Business Policy
  • In-depth Business informational from members
  • Member brainstorming-focus groups – reviewing a members growth plans, advertising, specific upcoming concerns facing the business, etc. while receiving input, support and guidance from the group
  • Quality referral reviews
