SOME OF THE BUSINESSES CURRENTLY IN DISTRICT32

A LITTLE BIT ABOUT US

In 2015, District32 was born with a vision to support business owners to overcome these immense challenges and to grow and prosper. Co-Founders of District32, Lorraine Garvie, CEO, and Dean Keating believed that there was a better way to do business.

Lorraine has an extensive background covering Marketing, Strategy, IT and Business Coaching and was hugely successful in her own right assisting businesses from sole traders to corporate to achieve growth and reach new levels in their business. Dean’s Business Development expertise has seen him accumulate sales exceeding $2 billion. Combining their knowledge and skills was the springboard to launching a Business Cooperative designed to provide leverage to business owners and to create exposure and opportunity.

District32 provides a strategy that connects the multiple, diverse strands required to sustain and grow your business. We provide several platforms for education, guidance, exposure and opportunities which deliver the tools that will raise your business to the next level.

District32 is a Business Cooperative that utilises the POWER OF NUMBERS and the MAGIC OF CONNECTING to get maximum exposure and opportunities for Business owners in Perth. The District32 team has galvanised a business network that is having a growing impact in the communities in which we operate.

Yes, for 12 months. It takes time to build and develop trusting relationships. There are a few events that are offered on a casual basis – ask us.
It means exclusivity of profession within a circle e.g. there will only be one accountant in one circle or one web developer. This means that you will receive all referrals for your service within your circle – you are not competing with anyone. This is available for Connect BIG Members.
Some of our Membership levels offer this benefit but not all, please ask us.
It’s a geographical area mapped out in the Community Newspaper distribution channels – each circle (with a different local newspaper) covers many suburbs.
It depends on your Membership level for example a Connect BIG Member can attend up to 6 events per month and a Connect Maxi Member can attend up to 4.
It depends on your Membership level, there are huge amounts of networking and business growth events and training available.
Only for additional events, food is included for most events.
Attendance is required at local circle events, but all others are optional. There is no pressure at all to give referrals but we will show you how to turn networking into business.
It is the company that joins – you or your staff can attend.
Either the District32 team directly or Connect Circle Leaders (professionals who work with us to facilitate the meetings).
Yes, the venues do not charge us for the venue but in return they insist that everyone pays for a meal. All venues accommodate all dietary requirements.
