As Education Coordinator I wanted to share with you a very recent and important finding of mine. What I have found is a real 'GEM,' Dubai’s newest best kept secret, and potentially life (and business) changing.
As briefly mentioned last week I had the pleasure of attending a seminar called 'Referral 101 Success.' A 2 hour, FREE OF CHARGE TO BNI MEMBERS, interactive seminar delivered by the inspiring Phil Bedford of the Referral Institute, which for those who don’t yet know is the sister company to BNI.
Please visit: www.referralinstitute-me.com for more information. In a very brief nutshell, The Referral Institute takes the concept (or concepts) of BNI and adds a dash of magic, it takes generating referrals to a WHOLE DIFFERENT LEVEL, to a 'higher level.'
BNI is GREAT! When executed correctly, it can be massively beneficial and can produce QUALITY referrals. However, more often than not, we only offer our fellow members services out to those who are 'already looking' for that particular service. This is known as a 'REACTIVE' referral.
Phil, at the 'Referral Institute' can help change the way you do business…..his techniques and practices help us to learn how to 'PRO-ACTIVELY,' or 'STRATEGICALLY' promote each others businesses and services resulting in more referrals and business for all concerned.
It is applicable not only to BNI, but also to every potential business contact that you might have.
I am NOT the expert in this. Phil is and I do not want to say more other than to encourage you ALL to attend the next Referral 101 Success seminar to see how this can help you grow your business further.
Please contact [email protected] for details of the next seminar and other related courses, and please see the attached flyer for more information.
Congratulations for being already in the know and in recognizing the power a referral can have.
Join me in taking it to the next level. Speak to you all in more detail tomorrow! Over and Out.
