Randpark Ridge Networking Group
Pin It

For the past 3 years Natalie Truran has been running the Randpark Ridge and Surrounds Business Networking Group. This group meets once a month in the morning, usually the last Thursday of the month. 

As of January 2019, I have taken over the group and look forward to its continued growth and success.

We currently meet from 08h45 to 11h00 at the Del Forno Restaurant which is located in the Ridge Terrace Shopping Centre, on Without Street, just off Jim Fouche in Weltevreden Park.

Registration is from 08h45 and we enjoy a full breakfast with tea, coffee, juice and water included. Any other food and drinks are for your own account.

Please diarise the following dates:

10h00 - Breakfast is served

10h00 - 10h45 - get to know the folk at your table and general networking

Don't only look to sell your products and services. See how you can help other members even it is referring clients to them. Word of mouth works best.

For those who attend regularly, we have a WhatsApp group where you can advertise once or twice a week (no spamming allowed please) and network with other members. If you don't attend 3 consecutive meetings, we remove you from the group.


The cost per meeting inclusive of breakfast is R130.00 and is payable 48 hours before the meeting. 

Unfortunately we can't accommodate walk-ins as the restaurant needs final numbers for catering purposes.
