Good afternoon Bethesda Business BNI,
As you continue with your week, please try to remember our most recent presenters ~ Victor Calderon & Steve Lorberbaum, and what a good referral or introduction is for each of them.
Visitors: Please reach out to visitors for our chapter including but not limited to CPAs, Bookkeepers and Daily Money Managers and invite them again this week.
Please also follow-up to Visitors Day participants from November 13th.
A special thanks to Stephanie Lewis, Gary Altman, Guy Brami, Dennis Elliott, and Greg Ford for closed business passed.
From our President Gary Altman:
What one question would you like to ask three current members and which three members have you identified? Be prepared as we may
James Bonato, Mentor Coordinator:
James is making it his mission to coordinate with new & existing members, to improve our referrals and thank you for closed business.
Please welcome James when he reaches out to you and embrace his positive message.
Notable Networker is the person who is doing 1-1s, passing referrals etc. Extra time at the beginning of Member Weekly Presentations. This week our Notable Networker is Robyn Parks.
Member Spotlight is for the member who has given a lot and we need to think about them going forward. Extra time at the end of Visitor Weekly Presentations. This week our Member Spotlight is Stephanie Lewis.
Housekeeping Reminder(s) from above:
Please get me any updates by Wednesday COB.
In the past we have had a blanket rule where we agreed that each week’s presentations were TWO OF THE BEST PRESENATIONS EVER.
This statement should eliminate the need for each member to mention how good the presentation was during the REFERRAL & TESTIMONIAL portion of our meeting.
I suggest we try to employ this once again, Marc Bruno being the exception.
In an effort to keep Diane Lorello at the top of our thoughts and prayers, Gary Altman will call on one member to give Diane’s infomercial this week. Who will it be? Only Gary knows…..be prepared!!!
This week we look forward to hearing from speakers Dennis Elliott & Chris Zamora.
Is there anyone you know who might be a potential referral for either of our speakers? Why not invite them to visit our meeting?
We do not meet on November 27, December 25 or January 1st.
Your thoughts and suggestions for our meetings and our BNI chapter in general are encouraged and always appreciated. Please email or call me at any time.
