Thank you Members, for attending our event in Durban on 11 November 2017!
AWESOME MILESTONE EXPERIENCE!
I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all attendees for attending our recent Network and Mini-Expo event in Durban on 11 November 2017, as part of our mission to bring businesses together.
In my view, the event was an incredible success and on behalf of our team, I would like to thank you for spending the day with us. It was great to see your support, and to have the opportunity to meet so many of you face to face at last, and it was fantastic to see so many diverse businesses from all levels in the same room, enjoying themselves.
I hope you had the chance to meet our key-note speaker, Allan Desmet from Profusion Magazine who visited us all the way from Gauteng to give us all golden nuggets about advertising trends today; he always has extremely valuable information to share with us.
I also hope that you all had a chance to chat to the UBC Founding members who were able to attend, and they all came all the way from the South Coast of KZN.
Over 21 businesses
were represented, which was a huge success considering this was our first meeting in Durban, our fourth meeting ever, and that our club is just under a year old.
I was personally very happy to see that you all took this meeting seriously and made the effort to bring as many marketing materials as you could, and I was tickled pink by all the wonderful specials and lucky draws that you arranged on the day.
A big round of applause to Liz Wheeler and Gerald Wheeler who arranged the goodies in the Kitchen, and another round of applause for our team and the volunteers who stepped in to help set-up and arrange the room and clean up afterwards.
Many thanks to Rene’ from Profusion Magazine and Peter Smit from Ikaheng for stepping in to assist with the event photographs, and Thami Tshenge who broadcasted the event live via his new Radio App business.
We could not have done it without you.
NEW FOUNDING MEMBERS!
I was also thrilled to announce that everyone who attended is now automatically given the title of UBC Founding Member; we have a tradition that anyone who attends the very first meeting in a new area is automatically considered a Founding Member.
Founding Members often receive privileges that other members don’t receive, such as free tickets, choice of stands, special discounts, early bird news and so forth.
We regard Founding Members very highly, because not only where they the first to support us in an area, but also because they now have experience of how we operate they can be examples to new members, people whom new members can look to for guidance on how to behave, or go to for assistance or queries about the Club.
Well done and welcome to all our new founding members!
