CHECK OUT WHAT THEY ARE SAYING ABOUT US

  • One of the highlights of 2022 for me has been the VIP Business Network. I have attended numerous events, all of which I have thoroughly enjoyed and through which I have met so many amazing people, a number of whom have become both business associates and friends. Margaret Cunniffe is a wonderful events organiser and provides dedicated and thoughtful service to her members at events and on the VIP Business Network website and social media. Added to that, she and many of her members very generously give to people in need in our community. So for me it ticks all of the boxes for a business networking group and I heartily recommend it.

  • Margaret is a master networker - I've really appreciated her business network and her passion for people. I feel that the VIP Business Network has been the right networking group for me because Margaret sees people as people - friends and colleagues first, rather than business first. Genuine connections and friendship breeds trust and respect. Thanks for everything you do Margaret! I highly recommend the VIP Business Network to all of my LinkedIn connections!

  • Margaret Cunniffe is an advocate for not only the business/brand of her members in VIP Business Network but for the person you are. Since joining in April 2021, Margaret has supported me personally with her wonderful retreats in Daylesford which I've attended twice now, allowing me to focus on me and intern my business. The perfectly curated lunch and dinner events located around Melbourne allows me to get out and surround myself with like-minded people so I can promote Green Whisk and the services we provide.

  • I was introduced to Margaret and her VIP Business Network and in only a few short months have been not only able to connect with other likeminded business owners, but also ones that have similar target markets who we can collaborate with. Margaret takes the time to ensure you sit with and are introduced to the right people to ensure you get the most value out of each one. Margaret has a strong focus on community, connection and growth. Highly recommended for anyone who's ready to try a new and better way of networking.

  • Event organisers have to be creative and capable to work with precision. Margaret Cunniffe is the one, she’s extremely gifted in hosting networking events! She is very personable, an active listener with excellent memory in remembering your area of expertise. If you’re looking for a networking group to join and expand your business, I highly recommend you talk to Margaret to join VIP BUSINESS Network.

  • I have had the privilege of becoming a member of VIP Business Network for nearly 12 months and during this time Margaret has been a great 'connector' to right-fit members. She is defintiely the 'Queen of Connection'. The calibre and quality of members at VBN is outstanding and Margaret specifically hand picks small groups who are in similar industry sectors to ensure your time is not wasted when attending the event. One of the key reasons I joined VBN was the community focus and the charity work they do as it is one of the values I hold high, particularly in such uncertain times. Thank you Margaret and look forward to being a member for many more years to come.

  • I have been networking in the small business space for over 15 years and spent a number of years running my own networking groups and events. During that time I have never met a networking group organiser who put so much care, thought and work into ensuring her members make relevant and valuable connections. Multiple and varied opportunities to connect as well as well thought out personal introductions. Thank you Margaret – I don’t become a raving fan easily but you’ve won me!

  • Hi Margaret, I just wanted to say a heartfelt thank you for your support since I joined VIP Business last month. I been warmly welcomed by you and many members. The real stand out however is how you and other members have been proactive in introducing me to others within the network who may need my services. My first consulting proposal is due this week. I'm also very impressed with your passion to not only support your members, but also those in need by leveraging the network for philanthropic purposes. Very much looking forward to a long association. Kind regards, Litsa Barberoglou

  • Now in my second year, I am proud to be a part of VIP Business Network. Margaret has an uncanny knack of connecting like-minded businesses in groups to both support and work with each other from the heart. Such a valuable asset, especially in the last 2 years of turmoil. The wider hub where the plethora of business owners have access to each others' expertise, has huge benefits, such as being a guest speaker, consulting, fundraising and being of service to communities in need; all of which I have experienced. Thank you Margaret for bringing VIP into being.

  • If you are looking for a way to meet, connect and network with other businesses without feeling anxious, you must have a chat with Margaret from VIP Business Network. Margaret's passion to create a safe and welcoming group of like minded, caring and sharing businesses is quite remarkable. During my time with VIP Business Network, I have, not only had opportunities to grow my own personal profile but have also made some life long friendships and a completely different approach to what networking is. Thank you Margaret for all you do.
