What our members say
Stephane Champagne – Networker
As an Entrepreneur the most important part of my personal and professional life are the quality of people I have around me.
Over the years being a member of the SGLBA has provided me with so much support, guidance and encouragement offering me new opportunities, friendships and a professional network that has helped grow my businesses since joining 5 years ago.
I love the diversity and acceptance within the association and can’t thank them enough for their support.
Dung Lam – Networker
Trying to grow a business can be a lonely affair.
Going to the long table discussion group is a great way to meet new contacts and to gain the benefit of other people’s experiences in promoting their business and reaching their goals.
Scott Quine – Life Member
I have been going to Fruits in Suits 1996 and loved every one/moment. Fruits has been very good to me. I decided some years ago to give back my thanks to the SGLBA and Fruits by becoming a Board Member, which lasted 6 years and included a stint as President.
Fruits (like most things) is what you make of it and I’m sure the current and future participants will continue to embrace it as it evolves in the future.
Tim Daly – Life Member
Fruits in Suits was the first official gay event I went to when I came out in 1997. Shortly after, I joined the SGLBA and have been a member ever since. I was on the Board for 10 years.
I have the SGLBA to thank for helping me to become deeply involved in the LGBT and general communities in Sydney and for some very happy and memorable times and close friends.
The SGLBA has also helped to generate thousands of dollars into my business.
