"The training courses which I have attended are more than a substitute for any personal development, sales and marketing training that I might hope to attain elsewhere...[they] have dealt with many aspects of my career development and the cost of similar courses with recognized training providers would probably exceed the total annual financial outlay on BNI - this means BNI Membership/Training is a great value for money investment" - Adrian Wilson, AW Environmental Solutions

3412 Getting members to "Do" stuff for you
How effective is your 60 seconds? Do members "do" what you want them to do?

Are you utilising the time you spend at Chapter meetings to get Members to "Do" things for you...or is your 60 seconds, 10 minutes and Education Slot...just a question of filling the time in?

This training will increase your effectiveness in getting your message across because you will concentrate on how your communication will get members to "do" something for you.

Visitor Host / Membership Committee Training
Two separate Membership Committee trainings...both lasting 90 minutes. Includes refreshments.
Visitor Host Training
Outside Chapter Director, the most important role on Chapter Meeting Day is the role of the Visitor Host. This training is a must for Visitor Hosts, particularly so that they learn to "nail" the visitor orientation and put to bed the myths surrounding the perceived "hard sell." When you ask the question, "Is anyone interested in applying to join?" those saying no are requested to return to networking. There is no "Hard Sell."
