Recognition Shone Through At The BNI Gold Coast Awards Breakfast


Education, training and recognition are all part of the core values of BNI, so what better way to show a Giver’s Gain® attitude by recognising the best of the best from the BNI Gold Coast Region.

Dressed in their finest, including of course their official BNI Name Badges, over 140 BNI Gold Coast members gathered together on Thursday 4th December 2014 at One50 Public House in Bundall.

It was here that our MC, Paul Lomas, Executive Director BNI Australia, guided us through the mornings award ceremony.  The awards for the day included;

Chapter Of The Year – The chapter who ranked the highest based on the traffic light systems for reporting

Notable Networker for the Gold Coast Region- The top individual networker for the Gold Coast Region based on chapter statistics

Most Improved Chapter – The chapter who showed the most improved throughout the year based on the traffic light system for reporting

Notable Networker Of The Year – The top individual members for each chapter based on chapter statistics

The Most Valuable Player (MVP) – The most valuable individual chapter member based on votes by other chapter members

Gold Club Members – an exclusive club reserved for members who sponsor a minimum of 6 new members into BNI for the period of 2010 to November 2014.

National Director, Frederick Marcoux, was on hand to share his wisdom via a feature presentation and of course assist with handing out the awards.

The event was organised by the wonderful team of local BNI Gold Coast Directors & Ambassadors; Peter Fitzgerald, Gayle McKew, Jane Taylor and Ilona Teremi.
