Five Foot Rope Business Connective is a networking group with no 60 second pitch, no weekly attendance commitment, no announcing of referrals or closed business and no costly annual fee.

We believe that your network, is your net worth.

We hold get-togethers and affordable workshops that allow you to meet other business owners in your area.

What We’re About

Your Network is Your Net Worth

Five Foot Rope Business Connective is an informal, South East QLD networking group that understands that even in today’s “online-online-online” environment, the best way to grow your business is through connections. Personal connections. Face to face connections. Coffee or wine connections. Sometimes just having a good old chin wag.

Informal, Relaxed and Fun

If you’re sick of networking groups with a sixty second pitch, compulsory weekly attendance, quotas for referrals and the expensive annual membership fee, then join us! 

Our informal, affordable get-togethers and workshops allow you to meet exceptional business owners and learn business skills to help grow your business, all while having fun! And we always have a lucky door prize at our networking events, so you’ll have a chance to WIN.   

You Get What You Put In

Our networking group could be just what you need to grow your business, so come along to our events, engage with other members, make real connections, contribute and enjoy yourself.

Suzi Manley

Suzi Manley

Co-Founder & Queen Ropian

I’m a networking event organiser and I run a networking event business with my husband, Troy Colley. I have many years of experience as a self-employed small business owner, as well as a background in retail sales.

Fun fact: I am obsessed with Dave Grohl, the lead singer from the Foo Fighters.

Troy Colley

Troy Colley

Co-Founder & King Ropian

Troy is a crane operator and often attends our evening events, when day-work permits.

Fun fact: Troy represented Australia in rugby union, as a young lad.

On most evenings, Troy can be found on the local oval, coaching the local junior rugby teams.


What attendees say about our events

Suzi and Troy have connected me with a group of business owners whose businesses I may need to use and who may want me to assist them in my role as a mortgage broker, both of which have occurred.

Because of the fantastic dynamic within the group they’ve created, my first thought when someone mentions the services they need, is to suggest someone in the group (e.g. I recommended our wonderful VA’s just this week). That dynamic is in no small part due to Suzi and Troy. They’re friendly and approachable and genuinely want members to succeed.

I have worked with Suzi as my client and also as an attendee/guest speaker as Suzi’s Five Foot Rope Business Connective events. Suzi is a happy-go-lucky, warm, embracing person and makes you feel so welcome at her networking events. I have learned so much from going to listen to her guest speakers and I have gained valuable network connections for my biz.

I would highly recommend Suzi to other biz owners wanting to grow their audience and brand.
