Which Business Book Would Your Recommend & Why?

E-Myth by Michael Gerber. I wish I ahd read this book 20 years ago. It captures my very experience and frustrations.

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

I first heard about BNI over 7 years ago and immediately sought to create a chapter.

Initially, I hit a brick wall as there was no regional representation in this area.

Perserverance paid off and I was a foundation member of the BNI Bay City Chapter.

I have subsequently forned a new chapter; BNI Network Connections and am serving as President.

I blieve that the best source of new business for me without doubt is via referral and BNI helps me achieve this.

How Long Have You Been a Member For?

6 years

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

President, Vice President, Treasurer, Visitors Host

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

Numerous referrals and closed business.
Support from fellow like minded members and businesses

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

Follow the process. It is tried and tested and works.

Do You Have a BNI Story to share?

I am absoluiteoy passionate about BNI and its benefits to small business.

I believe that there is scope for more chapters in the Geelong region, and will be actively involved in setting that up.

I believe that BNI is ideal for any new or small business looking to grow, and I always recommend that my clients attend at least 1 meeting as a visitor.

Your Dream Referral Is…
