If there is one training that will transform the face of BNI in the Asia Pacific region, this is it!
With 80+ participants from Australia, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Cambodia, and Vietnam in attendance, the Asian Directors Advance Training in Ho Chi Minh City in December 2012 by Phil Berg set the mindset on what director consultants must do to ensure that large chapters are launched and existing chapters continue to grow.
The processes are simple, though it will take hard work!
The biggest challenge is being accountable: the director consultant must be accountable to the LT, and the LT must be accountable to the director consultant, and the members must be accountable to the LT.
During lunch, many of the participants said, "With using the knowledge we gained this morning, I am confident that I can grow my own chapter to 51+ members and be green!"
We hope to generate larger participation from more countries at the Asia-Pacific Directors Advance Training in Bangkok August 6-9, 2013, conducted by Sam Schwartz, the Director of Training, BNI Europe, Executive Director, BNI Northern Virginia and the National Director, BNI-Israel, BNI-Hungary, BNI-Romania, and BNI-Bulgaria.
