Surrounding yourself with a friendly, supportive, caring network of friends and peers is invaluable to a healthy mind and business. And, when you work for yourself or are part of a business, collaboration is where magic can happen.
At the heart of The Collective is our CIICC (think kick) philosophy. Built on five pillars our members can:
Connect with likeminded people at inspirational venues.
Inspire and be inspired at our meetings and events.
Ignite their minds and body with new impetus and momentum.
Collaborate and capitalise on opportunities.
Celebrate their achievements.
“The power of one, if fearless and focused is formidable, but the power of many working together is better” – Gloria Macapagal Arroyo
We have gathered together a number of local, independent businesses to collaborate with The Collective to deepen and strength our offering to our members. The Collective’s Collaborators support our desire to inspire and celebrate local entrepreneurs and businesses by offering Collective members a special offer or exclusive discount.

"I joined The Collective because it looked like it was going to become a great network where positive relationships could be built and members could support each other to achieve great results. Already I’ve made some brilliant new connections, had some great conversations with enthusiastic and supportive local entrepreneurs, I’ve been able to help others both face to face and via the Inspiration Hub, and new coaching clients have found me through The Collective instagram posts! The Collective is not like any other networking group I know, it genuinely offers a different approach and that’s fantastic!"

"When working from home, it is really important to get out and mingle with other like-minded people and for me, The Collective is perfect for that. I have really enjoyed speaking to new people about their business ventures and I think it is great that we can support and inspire each other. I come away from The Collective events feeling full of confidence and with lots of new ideas for my business."
Gina from Precision Poise
If I could offer two words of advice for anyone thinking about joining The Collective, they would be “Do it!”.
It can be very daunting putting yourself out there, but The Collective has created a wonderfully welcoming atmosphere that centres around like-minded people genuinely supporting, encouraging and inspiring each other. I have benefitted so much from taking that leap and joining The Collective. Not just from the connections I have made and opportunities for collaboration that have arisen, but from the push it has given me to put myself out there more, proactively engage with other professionals and keep driving my business forwards. The Collective has created something very special, and is most definitely “CiiCC ass”!
Ben from The Fitness Masters
The Collective has been a great place for me to network with other professionals and is a fresh breath of air on the networking scene. My business has already gained several clients through just being featured on The Collectives website and social media channels, so financially it has already been beneficial. As well as great support group Abby and Helen do a great job of exposing members and introducing new people to one another who they think would be able to help each other out. If you have any more questions on how The Collective has benefited my business, feel free to shoot me a PM.

The energy, drive and passion behind The Collective really is infectious, it has helped re-energise our team and encouraged us to get out and spend more time meeting, supporting and collaborating with other local businesses and creatives. As a result we have not only made some fantastic new friendships but also seen a boost in enquiries and online traffic.
Nathan from Toast Functions
We love being part of The Collective. Helen & Abby have broken the trend of tired networking meetings and have wonderfully created a buzzing community of like-minded individuals who appreciate life is better with others than on your own. We at Toast love being part of The Collective and all it offers.
