In my second week of joining BNI in Aug 2013, a fellow member mentioned his upcoming visit to Tata Steel, Boisar in a weekly presentation. It was my dream referral so I accompanied him. I followed up with the client for 3.5 years, before they called me with existing vendors to give abudget proposal and took our interview as well. I was well prepared on all parameters – from following up days till getting the order – as I was groomed perfectly in BNI. BNI has been an institution for me, where I learnt through Training, Education Slots and Mentors all under one roof. Today we are creating 160 videos for Tata Steel, generating business worth over 50 Lakhs & we also got a testimonial from them.
Initially I had to wait almost two years for even a single business to come my way & now in four years all my big projects are thanks to BNI. I got clients like Sun Pharma, Aristo Pharma, Tata Steel & many more SMEs from BNI.
All this was possible only because of the fantastic networking platform & powerful system of BNI.
