Introducing you to a new local network for better business.

Localised Meetups

Localised Meetups are a great way to build your business networks - meet face to face with other like-minded local business owners. They are held monthly and free to attend. They are usually held in Torquay or Geelong. 

You will get a chance to hear first-hand about the latest developments and most importantly, have a crack at a Localised Lightning Pitch - 30 seconds to introduce yourself and summarise your business offering to an audience of other receptive local businesses.

Region Wide Business Training Opportunities 

Localised and the G21 Local Government partners all post upcoming training workshops and events for businesses on the Localised Events calendar.

What is the catch? 

The only catch? Your business has to be located within the G21 Region (Surf Coast, Colac Otway and Golden Plains Shires as well as City of Greater Geelong and Borough of Queenscliffe).

Since the launch of SurfCoast.Localised, over 430 Surf Coast business owners have already created a profile, joining a network of over 1400 businesses across the G21 region. And it keeps on growing.

Whether you're looking to promote, connect, or discover ways to grow your business, if you do business in the Surf Coast, you need to get Localised.
