Our Sponsorship Opportunities

Our sponsors are businesses who provide a table gift for each member or the Lucky Door prize. It brings a surprise and delight for each person attending an event, and allows businesses to promote their products and services.

Our Events

Events are held a minimum of three times a year in the Northern Beaches and North Shore, and twice a year in Melbourne.

Interest has been shown for extending The Friday Lunch Club into other communities and we intend to launch in  two new areas in 2024.

The events are invite only, with past attendees being able to recommend someone to join the group. As this is an intimate event and not a hard sales environment, we keep the events to between 20 and 50 people attending each one.

The Format of the Event:

  • Attendee funded two course lunch, including two drinks
  • Guest speaker – showcasing their career or area of expertise
  • Networking – never sit next to the same person twice
  • Table gift for each person
  • Lucky Door prize
  • Post event connection via email sharing of LinkedIn Profiles

Each event showcases gifts from businesses or business people who live in the local area. See below all of our Supporting Businesses

Benefits of Becoming a Sponsor

Partnerships are a cost-effective opportunity to market to a targeted segment. However, accessing the right people, especially high-value customers can be challenging.
