Do You Have a BNI Story To Share?

I meet my father thru BNI. When I first went along to a BNI chapter it was to support a client. The chapter was BNI St Ives and I arrived before my contact. Anyway I was greeted by the visitor host who ask me my name and business. I told him and he said…ahh well then you know everything about BNI. I said, excuse me. He said, Glenn Kirkwood…your father Geoff Kirkwood..yes. I said that is correct but I haven’t seen my father for 20 years because my parents got divorces when I was just a boy. He then told me that my father was the national director at the time and gave me the details. I have been forever grateful for agreeing to come along to BNI ever since

Your Dream Referral Is…

Medium accounting firms (15-30 staff) – Most accountants these days want to help their clients with further services however they find themselves swamped in compliance work for their clients. That’s were we can help. We partner with them to provide their clients with education in how to run a better business.

Our results to date have been incredible so the account looks great in their clients eyes by providing a better service.

I would love an introduction to local accounts you personally know.
