MEMBERS OF INNER WEST REFERRALS
The Inner West Referrals business networking group consists of a wide variety of businesses ranging from solopreneurs to larger SMEs.
What we all have in common is the desire to grow our businesses and to support others who also walk the entrepreneurial path.
Our membership is currently between 20-25 active members, and while there is some member ‘turnover' the group has been very stable over a long period, with some members originally joining the group more than 12 years ago.
The reason for our success is that we value people before profit.
We look to refer business amongst the group but we do not believe in forced referrals, rather building relationships and referring to those who we know, like and trust.

I am an Architect focused on sustainable architecture. I have a strong knowledge of constraints and opportunities in a variety of project typologies ranging from residential, to commercial and community projects.
I find each brief is an opportunity to apply my architectural skills, creativity and sustainable innovations to solve my client’s design problems. Good design is responsive to the sustainability of the community. It delivers a humanistic solution that integrates commercial imperatives and social objectives
The practice of Strategy, Marketing and business improvement is full of cliches, jargon, and complication that often does little to reflect the problems and needs of customers.
For 35 years I have been untangling these complications, simplifying their expression into programs that connect with and engage customers, and improve the processes and capabilities of enterprises across the private and public sectors.
I do this in a range of ways from mentoring individuals, managing specific programs, defining and addressing specific problems, to contract general management, and generally sharing the wisdom of the years and depth of experience.
I can do it for you.
Have a look at my StrategyAudit blog, for a taste of the things I think about, and what I think about them.
“My aim and intentions are to provide assistance in property management.”
I have been in the real estate industry for over 15 years; predominantly in property management as an agent and managing teams & offices. I developed industry and people skills, with further qualifications led me to training in the industry, opening up to other ventures.
There are many roles in the real estate industry, opportunities and niches which one can enjoy a career at any stage.
And with care, due diligence, systems and understanding by all parties through education, I look to provide support to agents, property owners and tenants along their journeys.
Due to my skill set I can assist, as a consultant developing and implementing real estate industry systems inclusive of property management, training and research services

As a PartyLite Independent Consultant and Leader I’m in the business of making sure that your home and office, not only look good but smell great too. I can sell you the world’s finest fragranced candles and accessories, with flameless fragrance options too. But more fun than buying is to have your own home fragrance party, where I’ll come to you and your guests. Together we’ll have some hands on fun, you’ll learn about blending fragrance to create your own signature fragrance, and the host will be rewarded with their own selection from the catalogue for free.
My favourite thing is sharing the PartyLite opportunity with others, and mentoring them to create their own successful candle business. As our team grows more people are finding that having their own home based business doesn’t have to be working alone, but can mean enjoying the community provided by working for yourself but not by yourself.

Since 2000, Ann Eyres has been practising clinical and medical hypnotherapy from her business based in Croydon. Ann has successfully helped people with a wide range of problems including anxiety and panic attacks, fears and phobias, weight loss and to quit smoking. Hypnotherapy is a medically recognised practise, which removes the original feeling to an incident thereby defusing the intensity of the developed problem. In doing this, the symptoms are resolved, the feelings settle, and life can take on a new meaning. Habits and behaviours can be changed, reduced or completely stopped and then physical and emotional health can improve.
Hypnotherapy is a safe and effective therapy where you are always in control and results happen quickly, so please, come and find out for yourself.
