Which Business Book Would Your Recommend & Why?

The Steve Jobs biography. It’s inspirational.

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

I was initially invited by a member of the Yarra chapter, Ann Watson. I met Ann through a very good friend and client of mine.

How Long Have You Been a Member For?

Almost 4 years

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 has taught me how to form good, lasting relationships with other business owners, as well as how to clearly articulate what my business does and my ideal client.

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

I don’t so much wish that someone has told me something about BNI, but I wish I had joined earlier. I had to be asked 3 times before I came along. Mostly because at the time I didn’t think I could afford it, but it’s seriously the best business decision I’ve ever made.

Do You Have a BNI Story to share?

Myself and the graphic designer of our group joined at the same time. Since then we’ve formed a fantastic relationship and they would be second biggest client – BNI being my biggest.

Your Dream Referral Is…

The owner or marketing manager of a development/construction company that requires ongoing work designing and developing sites for their various building products – an example would be Central Equity, PEET or Villawood Properties.
