LTME

Over 600 BNI Miami Members and Leaders gathered at the DoubleTree by Hilton March 11th-13th for Leadership Training and Member Education. Coffee was served by Nespresso while members networked with those members they might not otherwise meet as their weekly meeting falls on the same day.

 
We have received much positive feedback regarding the "Member Education" classes, offering a higher level of training for those advanced networkers in BNI. Here is an excerpt of the glowing testimonial from Dr Todd Narson of BNI Miami Beach regarding the Public Speaking Workshop with Michelle Villalobos:  

"Although it was a rather quick, 60 minute workshop, the information you gave us was invaluable for my recent presentation. I was teaching a 2 hour continuing education class for my profession to about 250 doctors. Although I was already 99% done with creating my power point presentation, the 5 magic keys to successful public speaking were more than right on point, they were essential.

The first email I received was from a doctor telling me this was the most informative and best lecture he's attended in the past 15 years. Thank you for your invaluable tips and I'm looking forward to your upcoming superstar speaker academy workshop!"

While our incoming chapter leaders were busy learning the tools and skills to effectively operate a successful BNI chapter, our members were becoming better Networkers with our wide range of class offerings.
