SBX CNNX [kah’nex] is about personal and professional development. Company leaders, executives and entrepreneurs across many different industries come together for these specialized sessions.  SBX CNNX is organized to collectively engage over meaningful roundtable discussions in a non-competitive setting. Fall 2021 SBX CNNX groups focus on CEO, Export, Finance, Marketing, People & Culture, Sales & Biz Dev and Women in Business are intentionally kept to a smaller, limited size to ensure all voices are heard and the space to learn and grow is created.

Every other Thursday 4:10pm – 5:10pm we get a little informal and a little more connected! Sign on from the device of your choice, and just be there! Network, interact, chat, meet someone new and renew existing relationships. 

Bring your bevvy of choice for a virtual cheers, followed by 30 to 40 minutes of calamity that is speed networking! This is one of our premiere connecting events and it fills up fast with a broad cast of characters.

SBX and our Members believe in ‘rising the tide for the community’. The Advisory Network makes you easy to find online and puts you at the front of the conversation. You’ll get a little SEO boost by being featured on the Advisory Network page and the community will get a big boost by being able to access you with one click.

This is your opportunity to take your connection with the business community beyond the logo and into the heart of what you exist to do and how you can help.  Being part of the Advisory Network signals that you’re open for business with an invitation to connect direct to yourself and your team.

Often overlooked, the management role requires an entirely different skillset! Many of our skills are transferable, but not as naturally as we might think. Research shows that only 1 in 10 people naturally possess management skills. Tenure and success give the experience required for management roles, but they don’t necessarily guarantee the skills. A manager who isn’t given the opportunity to develop their role-specific skills can lose traction with their team and in turn, the organization loses momentum to succeed.

Our DiSC Party is a great day spent understanding yourself & your team!  In this half day workshop you’ll empower yourself to work, communicate & collaborate better – which will help you get along better with everyone you work with!

At a surface level you’ll explore the personality and behaviour drivers of everyone in your workplace based on the DiSC model: 

  • DiSC style, priorities and shading, as well as your motivators and stressors
  • Overview of the DiSC styles, how you react to each, and strategies to improve your effectiveness
  • Tips and suggestions for improving your working relationships with everyone in your organization

SBX Online HUB is our all-in-one digital SBX Member community.  Find, register and attend events through the SBX HUB online and through the SBX App! Find out who else is a SBX Member and connect using the SBX HUB directory and direct messaging features.

Join the online forum for CNNX Groups you’re a part of. Carry on conversations from your CNNX Groups or catch up on what you missed with ‘After The Hour’. These CNNX session recap conversations are where we go deeper with our facilitators into the ideas and opportunities presented exclusively hosted in the SBX Online HUB.

Finally, get social with the SBX community by posting on the wall, joining social groups and staying engaged even if you’re not physically in the Sandbox space!

Sandbox Centre helps people create a better life through business. With clear views of the shores of Kempenfelt Bay, Sandbox overlooks the Spirit Catcher landmark from the heart of the Downtown Barrie BIA.  An accessible and innovative space waiting for you to meet with others, turn ideas into reality, strategize, plan, and grow your community of like minded individuals.
