What is your favourite thing about the WBA?

The events are very well organised, all members are provided with a list of attendees sent prior the event, so you can organise your network.  Also, both Lauren and Kellie are so supportive and always happy to help with any enquiries.

Please share the name of any members you have built a business connection or relationship with:

Since joining the WBA, we had many connections with businesses and have created long term relationships. From their referral to us and vice-versa, to cross promotion opportunities.

Quest Joondalup for example, utilises Janice from Brew Crates to create our Maternity Hampers, Long stay hampers and any special gifts for our guests and clients.

We also have a partnership with Business Station and Liberty Workspaces for their members to access discounts with Quest Joondalup and other Quest locations as well.

Please share what was your first experience of the WBA was:

My first experience was the Wanneroo Business Expo. Such a great event and a great way of showcasing our Business to other business and to the general public.

“I just want to thank Lauren and Kellie for doing such a great job over the year, supporting all local businesses and help us going over such hard time,” Carolina added. “Being opened only since 2019, WBA has been extremely important to help bring awareness to Quest Joondalup and having the local community know where and who we are.”
