Long Table Business
Our Member’s Voice
I have been running my own business for over 10 years and have done my fair share of networking. In that time I have been a member of many groups and attended many networking events.
One thing I have learned is that to get the maximum benefit from any is to be selective about those to participate in.
This is why I have chosen the SGLBA’s Long Table Business forum to be one of the few groups I have committed to.
Not only is it an amazingly diverse community but it is a great platform to really get to know your fellow members, the businesses they run and are passionate about.
I love that it is an environment that has multiple opportunity to support its members – starting from the Long Table Forums and extending to many other events on their agenda throughout the year.

SGLBA Networker Member
Long Table Business is an exclusive benefit for SGLBA Networker and above members. It is an outcomes-driven breakfast held on the first and third Wednesday mornings of each month.
Who attends, and why?
If you’re looking for leads and support, then this event is ideal for you. Attended by driven entrepreneurs and business owners looking to grow their business and attribute tangible return-on-investment to their networking activity.
Held in a boardroom, city-based setting, with like-minded professionals.
This event is exclusively for SGLBA members as part of their membership investment, though guests are welcome to sample 2 sessions.
Guests are welcome to attend, however this is a business event, thus after two events, we request non members to invest in membership, or cease attending.
Where there are multiple representatives from the same profession / industry, the group will discuss any potential conflict at that time.
Registration is required for this event. Please register via Eventbrite for the date you wish to attend.
