ENCOURAGING businesses to connect was the aim of the game earlier last week.
Leeton Shire Council's latest business breakfast was hosted by Eworks Employment Solutions last Tuesday, with a sizeable crowd attending for an early morning feast and a briefing about the organisation.
Eworks has offices in Leeton, Griffith, Hay and Deniliquin in the MIA region.
As well as the usual employment services, it also offers a national network of community and private organisations dedicated to assisting people with disabilities find work.
It currently has 60 clients in Leeton and aims to help find those people employment, as well as offer support once they are in the workplace.
Council economic development, tourism and events manager Peter Kennedy said the event had demonstrated many valuable points.
"I'm very happy with the turnout," Mr Kennedy said.
"It's good to walk around and hear the conversations that are going on, which shows us the need for these breakfasts is still there.
"This is all good for the Leeton business community."
Eworks disability employment services regional manager Peter Howden gave a short presentation and answered questions from the curious audience.
Mr Kennedy said business breakfasts were essential in bringing like-minded people together.
"I think we need our business community to be working hand in hand all of the time," Mr Kennedy said.
"By having these breakfasts they are networking and getting to know each other on that level.
"We've already shown through the recent (regional) business awards at Griffith and the mystery shopper that we do have a great business community here in Leeton.
"We just need to build on that and all work as a team for the benefit of our town."
