BNI 60 Seconds - More Testimonials


Each week in our BNI lunchtime meeting, I am expected to get up and tell other members and visitors a little bit about my work in a sixty second snapshot.

If you want to find out a bit more about our weekly meetings, skip to the bottom of this page.

Here's what I had to say this week:

"My name is Jon Ewing and I am from ltd, a website design and development company from Reading established more than ten years ago.

"You should refer business to me because in the past week, all modesty aside, I have received emails from two separate clients saying, and I quote 'What a star you are' and 'You are the king!'

"The reason for this praise is my ability to bail people out when their website is giving them trouble. This happened yesterday when Sarah from the Flowers and Plants Association gave me a call. It wasn't very profitable because I was able to fix her problem in ten minutes. In fact, I didn't even bother to bill her for it. It turned out someone had overwritten a file I had written last year with an older version, so all I had to do was upload the proper one and soak up the glory.

"So this week I'd like you refer someone who would like to add a 'star' to their team who can be relied on to pick up the pieces when their website goes wrong and charges a measly £35 an hour – or sometimes, if I'm feeling in a good mood, nothing at all.

"To find out how good your website could be, look into inframes."

What's BNI?

I am one of half-a-dozen people who have started a new chapter of the BNI business networking group and we're looking for other Reading-based small business professionals to refer business to.

We meet between 12.15pm and 1.45pm on Wednesdays. If you'd like to come along to a lunch, please drop me a line or give me a call and I'll put you in touch with our organiser.

There's absolutely no commitment required – you just pay a tenner, which covers the cost of lunch at the Strada on the Oracle Riverside - and you'll have a chance to meet existing members and other visitors, introduce your business and of course hand out business cards.
