News from the South Island

Thankfully wet March is behind us and I hope the weather didn’t impact on your business!

With the launch of our Selwyn Group in Rolleston last week, we now have 6 groups in Canterbury – so ladies, lots of fantastic women to meet at all of the other events and workshops. Make the most of the opportunities!


Facilitator change-over

It’s that time of the year again and I love seeing new members step up into the facilitating roles in each of your group.

A really big thank you to Kobe & Kelsey, Sarah & Kay, Elyce & Sabrina, Jacqui, Laura & Philippa for the time, effort and passion they’re put into their roles over the last 6 months.

Welcome Debs & Jade, Sharon & Kylie, Angela & Paul, Nicki & Sandi, Patty & Rosie & Ally. I’m really looking forward to working with you all and I know the members will welcome you into these roles.


Member Success thought

Remember, the meetings are your tool for business & personal growth and connections.

The members are your potential marketing team, collaborators & support, so make sure your meetings are your first priority not your last!


There is a casual networking evening this Wednesday night at the Engineers bar from 7pm. BRING A FRIEND and let me know if you’re coming by registering on Eventbrite here, spaces are limited.

News from Venus HQ

A gentle reminder when guests come along to a catch up with them won’t be counted as a RAVE until they are a member. We’ve had a couple of instances of ladies coming along to meetings, catching up with Venus members and then not joining which really defeats the purpose of them coming as guests, turns out they are prospecting rather, than looking at building business relationships.

Inviting guests to Venus

I would love you to share the word about Venus and if you have a guest keen to visit a meeting, please either send me her details or ask her to register on the website here, or get them to ring me.

All guests outside the Venus network MUST be registered via the website before they can attend a meeting. I want to make sure there is a spot for their profession and they know the membership information and commitment before coming along to experience a meeting.

Have a great month,
