What brought Rohan to BNI?

In 2011, Rohan's passion for film making and acting took him to Mumbai. While there, he was given the opportunity to work for some famous film production companies. However, he felt young and directionless. Through his relationship with a BNI Member, Hitesh Patel, he was encourage to move back to Ahmedabad, India and build something of his own. With one camera to work with, and a passion to rival anyone, he began to position himself as a reliable and trusted filmmaker. Through Hitesh, he was introduced to the world of BNI and in 2014, joined BNI Prometheus. With a positive attitude and willingness to create opportunities for others, Rohan became a dedicated Member and has now been with BNI for close to 5 years.

As a Member, Rohan began to understand the influence that he could have as a trusted mentor. That let him to take on the role as a Senior Support Director Consultant. In this role, Rohan supports the BNI Ahmedabad West region. 

How has BNI led Rohan to unparalleled Success?

Through the widespread promotion of a launch video that Rohan created for BNI Prometheus, he became the go-to regional event director for BNI Ahmedabad. In this role, he's covered more than 35+ Chapter Launches and numerous visitors days. This position also provided him the opportunity to oversee the region's three annual events: BNI Symposium, BNI Sports League and BNI Garba.

BNI has propelled Rohan from a one person start-up to an ever expanding enterprise of 18+ team members that occupies a 5,000 square foot studio. The best part... he found his first investor within his chapter!

According to Rohan, "I am proud to share that I have invested and partnered with 3 different BNI Members. In 4 years, I've gone from a start-up to a mentor and now other Members can share in my success!"
