Success Stories:
Keeping the BNI Momentum going!

Vancouver Island’s newest chapter is also the fastest ever launched in the region!! Only three months after the first information session, the new BNI MOMENTUM chapter also enjoyed the largest chapter launch ever on the island! Headed by driving force and chapter president David Robertson, a mortgage broker with RBC Royal Bank, the new BNI Momentum chapter has just that – incredible momentum!! After only a couple of information sessions, this Courtenay/Comox group of savvy business professionals quickly grew and started their chapter training in September.

David was extremely proactive (to put it mildly) when it came to inviting his colleagues.  He also worked diligently to motivate fellow core group members to do likewise.  The entire group worked brilliantly as a team immediately establishing and strengthening their business relationships; each week becoming stronger and more dynamic.  The motivated group quickly grew to 29 and the training fun began.

Leading the chapter training were two of our dynamic BNI Director Consultants, Maggie Komar and Anne Delaney.  These ladies thoroughly and efficiently provided insightful information each week to prepare the group for their November 30th launch.  Two months after starting their training they celebrated with a very successful chapter launch with almost 20 guests and several seriously interested candidates.  The meeting was a huge event for the Courtenay/Comox region and as a result, lots of positive word of mouth about BNI circulated around the community.

The BNI Momentum Wednesday morning meetings are held at the beautiful Old House Restaurant in Courtenay.  This historic venue is a place any BNI member would be proud to bring a visitor (or two or three).  Adding to the chapter’s success is the fact that each of the members had already practiced or quickly adopted our Givers Gain philosophy.  This is evident in their already established or newly formed relationships and passing of great quality referrals.

In less than two months of their launch, BNI Momentum is nowVancouver Island’s largest chapter with 38 members!  Watch out for this driving chapter, with a momentum like this, they are sure to continue to be one of our regions most successful chapters in 2012!

Congratulations to all of the members, the chapter leaders and Maggie and Anne for the fantastic training!  Keep up the great BNI MOMENTUM!!!  Be sure to visit BNI Momentum’s social media links:  http://www.facebook.com/BNIMomentum  AND  http://twitter.com/#!/BNIMomentum
