Today Coffs, tomorrow it's the world


IN a technological first for Coffs, British journalist Catherine Blyth, author of The Art of Conversation, will present via a live telecast from London to Coffs Harbour as part of Coffs Coast Business Women's Network (BWN) breakfast event on March 5 from 7am.

In the D block lecture theatre at Southern Cross University (SCU) special guests of BWN will enjoy this signature event - a networking breakfast and presentation from a celebrated author whose book, released in November 2008, is already sold out in Australia.

“Walking into a room of strangers can be daunting. Catherine's book provides tips on who to approach and how to get a conversation going - and keep it going,” BWN president Annie Blair said. “When you think about it, being good at 'small talk' is so essential.”

Registrations must be made online at by Friday, February 27.

Numbers are strictly limited. Pre-payment of $35 is essential.
