WSBC consistently provides a good forum to network with individuals from similar or complimentary work and business backgrounds.
St. George Bank
St.George Bank highly values its association and sponsorship of the Western Sydney Business Connection (WSBC) and as an organisation with strong community values, St.George strives to connect with the local business community wherever possible. WSBC has been invaluable in this regard, connecting us with the local community and facilitating the introduction to many local businesses. These introductions have resulted in many new business relationships and we look forward to continuing our association with the Western Sydney Business Connection.

Parramatta City Council has been a long-term supporter of the Western Sydney Business Connection.
They are an extremely professional organisation and manage consistent high quality events and projects across the Western Sydney area.
They make fitting choices in developing events which are appropriate to the most senior business people from Western Sydney and beyond.
They are progressive – not an old-boys club – and are an organisation to be taken extremely seriously. You only have to attend one of their events to see the calibre of senior decision makers.

Being a member of the Western Sydney Business Connection has opened up a wealth of doors for our company. These doors have led us to new business opportunities plus also to development opportunities for our staff. I have personally found that this is one of those rare organisations where when you attend the events you are welcomed and the other businesses attending are genuinely interested in how you can work together. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Western Sydney Business Connection to anyone looking for an organisation that you can fully engage with.

Preformed Line Products (Australia) is a Western Sydney based manufacturer of products for the power, communications and solar industries.
Regional operations extent into a number of countries in SE Asia and our membership of the Western Sydney Business Connection and Asia Business Connection plays an important and positive part in enabling us to have access to a wider source of information through contact with other member organisations at the various functions and meetings arranged by both WSBC and ABC.
A number of business opportunities have also been identified and pursued as a direct result of our participation and membership of the WSBC and ABC during the last 5 years.
WSBC provides us with opportunities to engage with existing corporate partners and forge new relationships.
Officer Parramatta Mission
WSBC represents an outstanding regional network of successful business people. As former managing director of Norwest Land, I was responsible for the development, marketing and sale of Norwest Business Park and in this capacity, I recognised the Connection’s potential for the promotion of the benefits of locating to Norwest Business Park to a wide range of businesses. The Connection remains a valuable point of contact for me with leading businesspeople in Sydney’s Greater West in my current role providing corporate and property advisory services.

I would just like to extend my thanks to the WSBC with their assistance recently. We were recently involved with moving a large exhibition from the CBD to Sydney Showground and a large part of our bid was to demonstrate the relevance of our location to their visitor and exhibitor base. The information and statistics that the Connection was able to provide to us to present to our client was fabulous. When our client rang to tell me the good news that we had been successful, he specifically mentioned WSBC and how impressed he was with the relationship we had with WSBC.
As a member, I'd like to take this opportunity to thank them for their personal effort and the resources of WSBC as we could not have secured the exhibition without the assistance of the Connection.
