Water Balloon Fights & Referrals

Posted by BNI Leading Edge on 26 July 2018
Water Balloon Fights & Referrals

So what does doing business have to do with a water balloon fight? Plenty if you're talking about the summer BBQ for the BNI Leading Edge members!

Saturday the chapter held its annual summer BBQ at a Balbir Pabila's home in Mississauga. Balbir is an Arbonne consultant and the chapter's social event coordinator. She was seconded in her role by Dr. Serge Lanoue chiropractor, event co-conspirator and BBQ master chef.

It was a great opportunity for the members and some of their spouses and family members to get together and get to know one another better in order to help provide better referrals for one another. Last year, the members exchanged referrals in Brampton, this year it was in Mississauga.

The photo above was taken before the water balloon fight, and as you can imagine everyone was too busy during the fight to take pictures!

Many thanks to Balbir and Serge for organizing yet another fantastic event!

Showing up is half the battle - how absenteeism hurts your business

Showing up is half the battle - how absenteeism hurts your business

We had the pleasure of having Jeannot Lamarre - BNI Director Consultant for our chapter - demonstrate how absenteeism at your BNI meeting hurts your business by reducing the number of referrals you get from your referral partners.

Without saying a word, Jeannot put a chair in the middle of the room and set one of his business cards upon it. He then gestured to BNI Leading Edge Dentist Dr. Cyril Tahtadjian to approach the seat, after which Jeannot promptly left the room.

Befuddled, Dr. T took the seat and the card an proceeded to improvise an infomercial for Jeannot. The point was that in order to get referrals you have to be present at the weekly meeting, and even if you send a substitute as per BNI rules, they can't give as good an infomercial as you can because after all: who knows your business better than you do?
