This week Chapter members received their individual Member Traffic Lights scores.
The Member Traffic Lights are a tool to help you get the most out of your BNI membership. We know that if members follow the tried and tested BNI system and carry out the activities recommended by BNI, then they get better results. And so the member traffic lights help you as a member to review how you’re contributing to your chapter and to pinpoint any areas where you could be more effective in helping your chapter colleagues.
After all, BNI first guiding principal is Givers Gain - the more you are able to contribute to the chapter, the more they will want to help you in return.
Breakfast, Business, and Banter. They're all on the table.

Anna Schonfeld at Kingsley Napley describes the 3 key benefits of BNI Sterling to mention when promoting the group to others:
- Improve and develop public speaking skills, particularly speaking confidently about what you do
- Growing your network – not just for passing business but also for professional support and social engagement
- To grow your business through referrals, and widening your pool of potential contacts and clients…you never know where your best referral might come from!
Please refers to these benefits whenever you are talking to a potential visitor.

We often see people make the mistake of meeting many individuals at networking events and then not having a system in place to follow up with the new contacts afterward. Here’s a simple follow-up formula we recommend; it’s called the 24/7/30 System.

Movers and shakers!
Sarah Dillingham, of Case Study Ninja received this testimonial from William Gets.
“I have twice requested a case study for my company from Sarah Dillingham, the founder of Case Study Ninja. The first was for a major rebrand project that we carried out for a South African global freight company. The second was for various SEO projects that were carried out for various clients. One always assumes that it is easy to write great things about your own company. This was my assumption until I handed over the case studies for Sarah to rewrite. The result was astonishing!
The tone, flow, logic and professionalism in Sarah's writing is exemplary and when I read the case studies she had written for my company I knew that the quality of the content was of such a high standard that I would be able to use it as part of any pitch for any new business for any company, small to large. I recommend Case Study Ninja without hesitation and will be using their services again and again.”
