Testimonials from our Members

  • Ewan McKenzie

    Since joining BforB I have developed some extremely valuable relationships with other local businesses, all of whom are now an important part of my marketing mix. Within the first 3 months of being a member I generated approximately $40,000 worth of income directly from referrals given to me by other BforB members. In addition to the financial benefits I have gained since joining my fortnightly breakfast group, I have also learnt a considerable amount from other co-members through their various presentations and one-to-one meetings. If anyone is looking for a relaxed and enjoyable referral networking group to join, I would highly recommend taking a look at what BforB has to offer.

  • Lana Mastop

    BforB has been a great investment for us on many levels. By spending time in one to one meetings with members and guests, we started to realise that our website was not as clear as we thought it was. We surveyed clients who also confirmed this view, analysed the feedback and quickly invested in the redesign of our website.
