Specialise in Personal Risk Insurance which includes:

What are your top 3 networking tips?

Follow up with people you meet when networking within 24hours.

Don’t ’spam’ people you meet at events. Only contact people if you said you would or if you can send a friendly email relating to the conversation you had.

Ask for what you want and need, be specific – you may just get the assistance or client you wanted

What can’t you live without?

the people in my life – my friends, family, work colleagues and fellow BNImembers who support me in my life and my business.

Which Business Book Would Your Recommend & Why?

Networking Like A Pro by Ivan Misner.

I only recently read this book but it has everything you need to knowon networking including ways of tracking how well you network and your referrals.

How Did Your Find Out About BNI & Why Did You Join?

I was recommended to BNI by a work colleague 3 years ago. I could see immediately the potential of BNI and would not have been able to start my own business without the support and clients I get from BNI.

How Long Have You Been a Member For?

3 years

What Position/s On The Leadership Team Have You Held? 

Vice President, Membership Committee, Visitors Host

What value & benefit have you or your business gained by being a BNI Member?

More than half of my clients have come from BNI.

The support from fellow members has been invaluable, along with having a panel of experts from various occupations on call for advice when needed.

What Do You Wish Someone Had Told Your When You First Joined BNI? 

Follow up on the visitors who come to your chapter. Whether they join or not, they could be a potential client.

Do You Have a BNI Story to share?

When I first joined BNI 3 years ago, the mortgage broker and I formed a relationship and even though she then became too busy to remain in the chapter, we have continued to refer to each other. One of my favourite clients was referred by her. This is the best part of BNI I think, the relationships you form that continue for years to come.

Your Dream Referral Is…

Business Partners.

Who do you know who has their business set up as a partnership arrangement? Such as 2 solicitors who own 50% each and are both responsible for bringing income to the business.

I would like to advise them on how they can keep their business together in the event of an unexpected illness or injury as well as advising of their personal insurance needs.
