Who is the group for?

Any Blue Mountains based business owner; full time, part-time or retired.

We prefer business owners not be MLM or Network Marketing as their core business and no recruiting to your blend of MLM.


This original group was started by Daniel Doherty. A local Blackheath business owner that saw a need to provide frequent informal business event for locals.

It started back in early 2018 and was a monthly event. 

It was suggested that we mix it up with morning events so we added our breakfast events to the mix. 

Making Business Made Social a fortnightly event mainly run in Blackheath. 

Further one off pop-up events were also added like Christmas in July and Wine Tasting.

Daniel has served on numerous boards from the Liverpool Chamber of Commerce for over 8 years (Director, Treasurer, Vice President), ShareCare and Macarthur Business Enterprise Centre. 

Following that he ran ConnectFX with a team of approximately 12 people located in Macarthur for around two years or so. ConnectFX was a business networking group.

Daniel with his partner Cindy have run numerous workshops on social media, content creation and blogging.

With over 20+ years running a business as a web developer and business automation specialist. 

Daniel moved to Blackheath with his partner Cindy mid 2017.

Networking Etiquette Tips

Build Your Network​

  • Don’t be the business card ninja! – We all know at least one. Only give your card out if asked. 
  • Don’t Sell – You are there to meet people — that is the entire purpose of the event.
  • Keep your smartphone in your pocket – When you are in the physical presence of other people, they should have your attention. (Unless you are checking in and posting you are at our event!).
  • Follow up within two days – Anyone worthy of your time is also worthy of your expediency. Don’t wait two weeks to follow up and let people know you enjoyed the conversation.
  • Never look at networking as work; if you do, you are in the wrong business. Look at each chance as a great opportunity! These are people you don’t see every day.
