Grow Your Business through Referrals, Networking and Building Relationships

How Can KBN Help You?

Are you looking to increase your connections and expand your client base or strategic partners?

Then maybe it is the right time to take your place in one of Australia’s fastest growing Business Support network. This is where relationships matter, and referrals make a difference, where we support your business, and help you turn wishes into goals, and dreams into reality.

The Key Business Network (KBN) Business Model is based on the concept of growth of the business (and the businessperson) through support, providing personal and professional development and referral-based networking. This is where groups of businesspeople meet regularly to create and foster strong relationships based on respect, trust and a great understanding of what each member delivers in their business. Members of KBN are encouraged to build relationships and possibly form alliances with members of their own group and other KBN groups throughout Australia.

In early 2020, Julie and Doug Bannister took an educated risk and turned it into a huge opportunity, not only for themselves, but for the good of local businesses Australia wide.

Previously, Julie and Doug had founded KBN in November 2008 and at the time of purchasing another networking brand they had built the organization to 13 groups in SE Qld.

With the amalgamation of the two businesses came franchising opportunities as the business had grown to 15 business network groups in SE Qld, 1 in Adelaide and plans to open in Sydney and Melbourne in 2021.



Information and key stats for the last financial year:
Average number of business contacts each KBN member has locally, nationally and internationally
The total dollar value of the largest referral received so far in Australia
The number of legitimate referrals passed every week between our Members for Business Growth

KBN has pushed me completely outside my comfort zone by giving me the opportunity to be a Facilitator of a group, significantly improving my public speaking and confidence, and taking our business to a whole new level. You just never know who someone knows and when I asked my fellow KBN members for a referral to a Telco business I got a referral which has, so far, lead to in excess of $500,000 in contracted business. KBN has changed our sales strategy and we are now looking for strategic partners in our KBN group that we can cross-refer and work together every fortnight at meetings for the benefit of our customers and each other – a win for all.

A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.  I stepped in KBN just over 3 years ago and what a great journey it has been.  But now, the journey has expanded to include the awesome Member Development Days.  I have found new ways to learn, from speakers that I have not heard before, in a relaxed and enjoyable environment, without having to pay to attend.  Now that is what I see as being a KBN member!
