Don’t focus on how many referral you have given or received

Do You Have a BNI Story To Share?

I had the privilege of meeting Dr Misner on his visit to Australia so years ago. At that meeting he told us that when travelling either for business or pleasure you should check and see if there is an BNI chapter and attend a meeting.
You will meet other BNI businesses, you will also learn the best places to check out.
On hearing this,when I turn 50 me and a mate hired a red mustang convertible and did Route 66.to Chicago then on to New York. This took a month.
Before leaving I emailed BNI HQ and organised to attend a training seminar. Then each week attended a local BNI meeting as I traveled across the United States.
It was fantastic
Las Vegas, Amarillo,Kansas, however the peak was the a New York chapter they met in the Rockefeller Building.
This was a dynamic group with lots of energy
I was chuffed when I received a referral from a member to quote on cleaning his office.
To encourage members to visit us in Oceanview I offered at all chapters breakfast on me for anyone who would attend our BNI Chapter Oceanview Manly
One lovely lady from arbon took up the offer when visiting Australia
I can highly recommend that when you are away to find a BNI chapter and visit.

Your Dream Referral Is…
