10 minute speaker: Jon Waldron

The 10 minute speaker this week is Jon Waldron from BNI Cheshire East. He started by thanking the leadership team, who are working really hard behind the scenes to make the chapter work.

One of the ways in making the chapter work better for everyone is to Invite more visitors. A. Visitor does not need to join the chapter. 30% of business passed is with non visitors.

FROGS – where to find visitors
– Friends
– Relatives
– Other groups
– Geography
– Social

If you struggle what to say – try something along these lines:

I am part of a network and we are really trying to grown our contacts. There is no requirement to join but your business may benefit from becoming a member.
or
On Linkedin click the find nearby and it will create a list. Ask to connect and then keep in contact with them. Invite them to come over to a meeting.
