2nd Annual BNI Melbourne South Awards


The 2nd annual BNI Melbourne South Regional Awards Breakfast was held recently on the 20th of January. Attending the awards and enjoying the advanced networking opportunities were approximately 120 BNI Members representing their Chapters from around the BNI Melbourne South Region.

Master of Ceremonies was BNI executive Director Brent Edwards and members were treated to some great guest Speakers including Podcaster, Branding and Social Media Specialist Annemarie Cross and Chiropractor and Neurological Specialist Dr Kathleen Lawson who also used the occasion to launch her new book “Busting the Brain Myths.” Judging by the reception, attendee’s agreed that both presentations were useful and informative.

This breakfast is also the time where high achievers are recognised throughout the Melbourne South region for their efforts within their chapters over the year past. Every member in the regions performance is benchmarked, taking into account Referrals, 1-2-1s, Attendance & Lateness (minus value), Visitors, Sponsoring new members, serving on the Leadership Team and of course Closed Business passed.

Totals are collated at BNI Melbourne South HQ and chapters and member’s performance is chartered in a “league table”, for their chapter and also against the rest of the members with the region to define the region’s member of the year. Totals from chapters also go towards finding the regions Chapter of the Year.

The breakfast also recognised Gold Club Members (members who have sponsored 6 or more members into BNI) and four 10 year members.
