Welcome to Bayside Referrals,

Let me introduce you to a group

of passionate professionals

I know, like and trust.


I joined BNI almost 3 years ago and am so glad I did. A member gave me a referral that helped grow my business more than anything had up to that point. I had a stream of referrals going to and from that referral partner and I began giving presentations, which significantly helped my business. If that isn't enough, BNI taught me ways to support people in other fields I had never thought of, how to network effectively with limited time, and how to give a clear, concise elevator speech.

I was unfamiliar with BNI before I joined. I have found BNI in general, and Bayside Referrals, specifically to be a great way to meet like-minded professionals who are genuinely interested in providing me with referrals to help me grow my business. I find BNI to be a good use of my time and it provides me with a valuable network of people who I can trust.
