BNI Bethesda Business Update: Week of April 12, 2021

Please remember our most recent presenters ~ Victor Calderonand Steve Lorberbaum and what good referral is for each of them.

I have attached our PALMS Report through the last meeting April 09, 2021.

Thank you to members who continue to pass referrals which lead to closed business. This was a better week for closed business.

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.

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 16th we look forward to hearing from speakers Dennis Elliott & Christian Zamora.

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.
