What are your top 3 networking tips?

1. Just like NIKE- Just do it….it you don’t engage in networking you won’t build your contact sphere.
2. Learn from those with more experience, don’t be afraid to ask “How?”
3. Plan and Be Prepared for your networking- know your target, know your approach and focus that approach based on the group and the dynamics.

What can’t you live without?

My phone, computer and access to good wifi connection when away!

Which Business Book Would Your Recommend & Why?

Of course, my own!  “Business Tips from a Business Coach” by Tony Ozanne (available from my website or Amazon).

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

I had heard of it when I started my business, and it was only by chance at the launch of my business that I was invited by an attendee who I had never met. I went along the next week as a guest, and applied the following week…the rest is history!

How Long Have You Been a Member For?

4 years almost

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

President, Membership Committee, Education, Visitors Host

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

The biggest benefit has been in the number of great people and businesses that you become exposed to. Not only do you form business relationships with them, but many turn into great friendships as well.

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

That I would actually enjoy and look forward to those 6am wake ups every Thursday. Have to say that it has taken a while to enjoy it, but after so long it kind of feels strange if you don’t have BNI and don’t have to get up early one week. Oh, and what were ‘dances’ 1 to 1’s, closed business and all these coloured forms…

Do You Have a BNI Story to share?

Not so much a story, but more a lesson or learning….It does feel strange at first when you join, and you will take time to get to know the group and them to know you, but it is worth the journey.

BNI should fit in with your business marketing process as simply on of the many tactics you execute in conjunction with other aspects, and use it to build and grow your brand and your positioning.

Your Dream Referral Is…

A multi site franchise group looking to develop in house coaching or business development skills to take their business to the next level.
