Tell us about your business:

We make and sell (what we think) are Australia’s best made mattresses. Our focus is on working with health professionals to ensure their clients can sleep on a mattress with perfect postural support. As such, we have developed our own zoning and spring system in conjunction with Dr Michael Haworth. We also sell directly to the public from our showroom located next to Dan Murphys.

What are your top 3 networking tips?

  • Be specific, if you can’t be clear about what you want, how do you expect others to help?
  • The more referrals you give the more you get: helping others is its own reward.
  • Always be more interested in other people and their businesses. People pick up on when you make it all about you. Besides, you might just learn something!

What can’t you live without?

My iPad.  Sad but true

Which Business Book Would Your Recommend & Why?

I’m currently reading Dr Ivan Misner’s Business Networking and Sex. With a title like that, why wouldn’t you read it!

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

A chapter member met me at another local networking event and invited me along. At first I resisted because of the commitment required, but that is the very reason it works and I’m glad I joined.

How Long Have You Been a Member For?

18 months

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


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

BNI puts a framework around the way I look for new business, both inside and outside of BNI. It gives me a weekly opportunity to step outside the day to day running of a business and invigorate what and how I do things.

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

You don’t have to bring a referral every week, there are many ways to contribute to the group.

Do You Have a BNI Story To Share?

I am amazed at how past members from the chapter always visit me first when they need a mattress. It demonstrates that good things come to those who wait.

Your Dream Referral Is…

Owners of Chiropractic clinics in the Bayside area.
