What are your top 3 networking tips?

Come prepared – always carry business cards with you

Ask questions to find out more – if you’re not sure on exactly what an aspect of someone’s business is, ask them, and help evolve your understanding.

Building your network is so much more than simply sales. Connect, build trust, then work on sales.

What can’t you live without?

I never seem to be far away from a computer, sadly. With the increase of apps on phones and tablets, email and work is never far away. Although, admittedly, it is great to disconnect from it all when possible – and clear the head.

Which Business Book Would Your Recommend & Why?

“Steve Jobs” by Walter Isaacson – an inspirational, unique and outside-the-box thinker. The world is a better place because of Steve Jobs.

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

My partner had been a member of BNI for years and had seen the immense potential for my industry – as soon as a vacancy opened up in my area, I jumped on the chance to join.

How Long Have You Been a Member For?

2.5 years

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

Vice President, Visitors Host

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

Personally, a boost in confidence and networking skill.

For the business it has been great to work with other dedicated and skilled businesses in the area.

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

Talk slower… and remember to pause and take a breath.

Your Dream Referral Is…

A connection in to a gym (especially group fitness, yoga, or specialist environment – i.e. physio) or cinema network to build a web presence that makes browsing easy and effective, and streamlines classes, bookings and purchases. Some awesome management systems exist that can seamlessly and beautifully connect in with websites – and I truly thrive on this level of development and integration.
