International Networking Week
February 4 - 8, 2013
We all have certain people in our lives who have had a great impact on us and have influenced our success in business and life, yet it is rare that we have the opportunity to recognize them publicly and thank them for the invaluable source of support and inspiration they’ve been for us.
The 2013 International Networking Week is the perfect opportunity to recognize those who have significantly impacted our lives in positive ways . . .
By bringing these respected mentors, trusted friends, valued business contacts, etc. to our BNI meetings during International Networking Week, we will not only be able to proudly introduce these exceptional individuals to our network and publicly acknowledge the difference they have made in our lives, we will also be giving back to them in a way by affording them the opportunity to expand their network which may ultimately help them achieve further success in their own life and/or business.
Robert Louis Stevenson is quoted as saying, “Everyone who got where he is has had to begin where he was.” The teachers, educators, mentors, and other stand-out people who make a difference in our lives play a huge part in helping us to get from where we began to where we want to go and if there is someone who impacted you in a way that helped you get where you are today, show your appreciation by inviting them to your BNI chapter’s event or weekly meeting during International Networking Week. You will be strengthening your relationship with this person who is so important to you, creating increased networking opportunities for everyone in attendance at the meeting, and taking advantage of the perfect opportunity to show gratitude to the individual who has influenced your life by publicly recognizing them.
