I have found the biggest benefit for me about BNI is the conference it gives you to talk in public and thanks to BNI now I am able to give presentations to over 50 people with conference!

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

I wish I knew about all the information that bni has on line to help you grow.

Do You Have a BNI Story to share?

I received a call from a local business looking for a business coach, I met with them and discovered they needed a logo update. I left our Graphic Designers card behind. Two weeks later he got a call which has lead to them now out sourcing all design work to him. He noticed they needed some professional photographs so he referred them on to our Photographer. That is now three people that have benefited. The business now calls me anytime they need anyone as I am seen as the person who can recommend quality businesses!

Your Dream Referral Is…

The education department so i can get my road safety message out to every school in Australia!
