SME Business Showcase
Come and join us for Marlborough’s first SME Business Showcase. This is a great opportunity for you to come and meet seven of our local businesses – learn about what they do and how they could help you and your business, all while enjoying drinks and nibbles in the foyer of the Marlborough Convention Centre.
These are free events for our members and are great opportunities for you to network with other local businesses! There will also be some great prizes up for grabs in the business card draw!

3M Learning - Martin Hughes has been working with businesses and schools within and beyond NZ for 14 years. He has a relentless focus on making the most effective and profitable workplace behaviours, the easiest to achieve - he achieves this partly by significantly simplifying our relationship with technology so that productivity becomes the focus, instead of technology focussed frustration, delay and resource wasting. Within busy organisations, regardless of size, this achieves 100% uptake amongst all team members so that everyone can do an even better job, with much less stress, in much less time. Martin is a Google certified Trainer and he delivers professional learning experiences that are Meaningful, Memorable and Motivating, that are mainly based within G Suite but accommodate many other technologies also.

Our size, experience, team and relationships across the wider Scott Group, make us a dynamic force within the industry. We are Registered Master Builders, Licensed Building Practitioners and Site Safe Members. From renovations & alterations to new builds, we cover all residential work, no matter the size of the project. We can work with you to advise on initial costings for your ideas, be it a bathroom or kitchen upgrade or a new deck, and manage through to completion. Come and meet some of the team and see how they can help you with your building needs.
The Local Business Network in Blenheim is all about supporting you and enabling ways to work “on” your business rather than “in” your business.
