Referrals4Life is giving away networking training!

We have mailed cards to over 300 BNI and Corporate Connections members to notify them they are eligible to receive free networking training for classes beginning in January.  Currently 4 locations are on the schedule, two in GA and two in NC.  This training is valued at $249 and is part of our Networking Like A Pro All Stars program. The program teaches business professionals how to identify 5 to 8 profitable referral sources and implement a plan to establish relationships with those people.

Fewer than 100 spots are available for the January classes. If you have received a scholarship card and would like to register, please send an email to melinda@referrals4life.com.

NC is in the Green!

The BNI Top Producers chapter of Kernersville is a “top producer” of referrals! They are the top North Carolina chapter in our traffic lights report for November. Nipping at their heels is the Charlotte Cornelius Action Alliance group and the Lexington Founders chapter who were also in green. As with GA, there was a three way tie in NC for third between the Charlotte BNI Referral Champions, GSO Gate City and Charlotte Mint Hill Breakfast Champions chapters. Kudos to you all for investing in the success of others!

If you want to know how your chapter can improve, please work with your chapter director who has some great options for growing members and referrals.


Congratulations Athens, GA!

Networking is hot, hot, hot in Athens, GA. Of our Georgia chapters, Athens Referral Factory had the highest score in our traffic lights report for the month of November and the BNI of Athens chapter was only a few points behind. In a three way tie for third was Crossroads Connections, Cobb Barrett Business Builders and Coweta Fayette Business Partners. Congratulations to all of these top BNI chapters!
