our fbs community

Our regular "Wine, Cheese and Exhibitionist" evenings provide an opportunity for us to catch-up with our guests whilst they are surrounded by beautiful artwork, enjoying wine, good food, conversation and music. Each evening has a theme, an artist exhibits and we have a guest speaker talk about the topic of the evening.

We try to cover a range of interesting ideas outside the normal scope of a networking event. We invite our guests to engage with new and often unconventional ideas that have helped FBS to grow and mature as a business, and which we frequently implement in our approach to project management.

Pro-bono project management and app-development for ParaQuad worth 100's of hours.

Supporting the Royal Institute for Deaf and Blind Children for many years, including our Director Brett Hartley raising over $30,000 participating in the annual "Splash for Cash"

Provided clean drinking water to thousands in the Chivi District of Zimbabwe by purchasing a well through CARE Australia.

Sponsored the education of young women in Zimbabwe through CARE Australia, along with the provision of chickens, school supplies, and clean water.

We sponsored the inaugural Filipino Rugby Club for years, including sponsoring a training camp run by Gary Ella

We sponsored a nurse to help cover the costs of a 6-month commitment aboard the Mercy Ship.

FBS donated to the buy-a-bale campaign, as well as raising donations through one of our networking events to support farmers in need during devastating droughts and bushfires.

FBS would like to acknowledge the Gadigal people of the Eora nation as traditional custodians of the land where our head office is located.
