Danny de Hek – ELITE : SIX
In short I’m a serial entrepreneur, connector, a person of influence. I’m that guy who knows everybody. I’ve put together my website for a bit of shameless promotion for my services.
How do I make my living?
I own and run a beautiful little company called ELITE : SIX Business Networking. My clientele pay me a monthly membership fee to be part of this business family. This niche company supports start-up’s and small to medium size businesses. At our weekly meetings people are encouraged to share their experience, knowledge and skills.
What’s my background?
Academia has never been my forte. I’m 100% self-appointed and I’m proud to say I have the gift of Dyslexia. Technology has helped me overcome multiple stumbling blocks. Arguably, I have been an expert on Internet marketing since 1994. These days I specialise in Content Management Systems (CMS), WordPress and Shopify. The service I provide is educating people on how to manage their own websites. These days I only host a handful of websites for my loyal clientele.
ELITE : SIX
A progressive and forward thinking organisation that brings local businesses together each week for an hour of interactive networking.
What we offer is one of a kind. Our main Point of Difference is, members get to talk for 5 minutes each in a table of up to six. This is where we get our name from.
We are not focused on just one industry in each group, as long as a member goes to their home group regularly you can also visit other groups as a guest or give a presentation of value.
We are a supportive environment and we focus on start ups and small to medium sized businesses who want to grow.
Members don’t come to pitch their businesses or just to hand out their business cards. We build strong relationships with like minded people. These people become walking ambassadors and this is where the magic happens, leads and referrals come naturally.
Each week we have groups meeting in Ferrymead, Selwyn, Sydenham, Addington, Papanui, New Brighton, Belfast, Rangiora and ‘Central‘ is our Think Tank meeting. It provides a central place at the end of the week where members from the other groups have the option to meet the larger business family.
