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

I heard about BNI from a bookkeeper client, who suggested it was a good way to increase my referral base. I attended several meetings held by different chapters until I found one that suited me.

How Long Have You Been a Member For?

6 years

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

Treasurer, Membership Committee, Visitors Host

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

I have continually gained new business from both internal and external referrals which have enable the business to become a supplier of choice.

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

That you need to put in the effort to become known and trusted, before the referrals start to flow.

Do You Have a BNI Story to share?

Even after 3 years of doing my 60-second infomercial, a member still wasn’t sure if I could help them get finance for a used truck, so either they hadn’t been listening or I need to sharpen up what I was saying…..so I did the latter.

Your Dream Referral Is…

An established earthmoving or road transport operator who changes equipment on a regular basis.
