During the COVID-19 lockdown period, BNI has moved its operations online. The regular weekly meetings are now being held on Zoom, and everyone is actively participating.
Visitors are invited also and can get a taste for what BNI can offer, and how it referral system works, and why it's the best networking thing you can do to grow your business.
To find out more how you can share in the referrals exchanged between members and possibly close some business, please contact us today!
Indranil Ghosh - a real estate agent with Royal Lepage based out of Brampton but working across the GTA - is our Notable Networker for February, having passed the most referrals to his partners and having brought the most visitors to our meetings.
Book some time with Indranil and you may end up with a referral too!
Saving pets from a house fire isn't your typical business networking meeting, but this was not your typical business networking meeting!
Members of the BNI Leading Edge business referrals group got together with friends and family for a fun night out at a local escape room in Mississauga. The members were split into 2 groups, each attempting to solve the puzzles in order to save 8 pets (stuffed animals, don't worry no pets were harmed here!) from a devastating house fire. The teams had to work together to get clues and solve riddle, collaborate with one another and help each other to solve the many puzzles and problems.
In the end both teams succeeded - albeit with a few hints from the organizers - and everyone had a great time! Before the rescue event, there were even a few ping pong matches in the lobby.
This is a perfect example of getting to know your fellow referral partners better to establish stronger relationships, which makes referring clients a lot easier, whether it's business based in Mississauga, Brampton, Oakville or Etobicoke.
Come and join us for our next event!
For the month of January, Civil Litigation John Mullen (left) is accepting the Notable Networker Award from President Dr. Serge Lanoue (right).
John passed 12 referrals to his referral partners in the month of January, the highest of anyone in the chapter. That's 3 referrals per week! These referrals are examples of how word-of-mouth marketing can work for your business, for potential clients in Brampton and Mississauga.
If you want to be on John's referral radar, meet with him one-on-one and find out how he does it.
