BNI Bethesda Business Email Update: Week of April 5, 2021

BNI Bethesda Business Email Update: Week of April 5, 2021

Please remember our most recent presenters ~ Robyn Parks and Andy Stern and what good referral is for each of them.

I have attached our PALMS Report through the last meeting March 26, 2021. Thank you to members who continue to pass referrals which lead to closed business.

Please note to all, the last four weeks have been weak with respect to closed business. Please make it a point to put in closed business, follow-up on referrals passed, etc.

From our Leadership:

The evolution of the BNI Phone App will help us with Closed Business reporting. Please reach out to Greg Ford if you have any questions.

From Victor: In the Breakout Rooms, make certain to include visitors and newer members in your conversations.

If you are late, you are not permitted to speak. This has been a rule in our chapter for years.

Follow-up with our most recent visitors/subs:

Charles Steele          Corcom Partners, Utility & Telecom Consulting

We have a blanket rule where we agree that each week’s presentations are TWO OF THE BEST PRESENATIONS EVER. This statement should eliminate the need for each member to mention how good each of the presentations were during the REFERRAL & TESTIMONIAL portion of our meeting.

This Friday April 9th we look forward to hearing from speakers Victor Calderon & Steve Lorberbaum.

Is there someone you know who might be a potential referral for either speaker? 

Why not invite them to visit our meeting this Friday?

Even better, why not make an introduction ahead of time !!!!

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.
