I am a telecom consultant working in the new era of telecom which is telecom expense management.
I have been with BNI for about 5 years now. I needed to reach people directly or via references and BNI started helping in reaching my goals.
I had been trying to get in touch with a company since last 2 yrs for my business without success.
However put my specific ask in weekly meeting and it clicks on the right time.. One of member connected me to the owner of the company. I have called up the owner, the owner immediate arrange the meeting and that meeting instantly converted into business..
So this is the power of reference and power Of BNI.
