Testimonial : Detox/Weight Management
“I am getting married in 6 weeks, and needed to lose some weight, I therefore agreed to meet Gitte to discuss the ‘Forever Clean 9’ programme which she was promoting.
Gitte took the time to explain the mechanics of Forever Clean 9 and explore whether or not it was suitable for me, from health and commitment aspects.
Although sceptical I decided to give the programme a go. The first two days were very difficult, but following that it got much easier. I achieved results within the first few days. Gitte was in touch regularly to give out advice and support.
I continued to exercise throughout the programme and was able to work as normal. By the end of the programme I had lost 3 inches form my waist and just over 6kgs.
If you have the willpower to complete the first two days then I would recommend the programme wholeheartedly as a means of losing weight quickly and, notwithstanding the first two days, easily.”

KaminaKawena Cleaning Services
The key to the development of any business is marketing. You can have the best product in the world, if you don't market it then it will not sell, it is that simple. The best way to market a small to medium business is through word of mouth and BNI has certainly perfected the art of word of mouth, of quality recommendations. It is my belief that with BNI I will develop my business to the next level, I can clearly see how "Giver's Gain" works.
I run a quality service cleaning company providing end of tenancy cleans, specialist steam carpet cleans and ongoing cleaning to offices, homes and holiday properties. We are not cheap and we may take longer than our competitors, but we pride ourselves in attention to detail, after all cleanliness is hygiene and hygiene is paramount both at home and at work, not just for health but for presentation demonstrating real pride in our appearance.

“I joined BNI in 2010, when I went into business for myself, and have continued to renew my membership every year simply because IT WORKS. I like to take quite a personable approach to business so I find something like BNI, where you can meet with the same group of people every week and build good solid relationships with fellow local business people, an excellent ‘marketing tool’, if I can call it that. And the breakfast isn’t bad either.” Brad Kuhlmey - Director
"Hamilton Heating have replaced a combi boiler in one property and solved an intermittent hot water problem in another. I have asked them to quote for another combi. The pricing is spot on. The tradesmen are polite and efficient. They do not leave any mess behind. I am recommending them to everybody who asks. Hamilton Heating is a real breath of fresh air." - H McLellan - Battersea, SW11
"Brad, Pete and Rob did the job speedily, efficiently and with good humour. They are pleasant to have around and were pleased to give me the benefit of their expertise on simpler jobs which I am going to tackle myself. I would have no hesitation in using them again, and would recommend them to anyone who needs any sort of plumbing work." Dave - Streatham, SW16
"Brad is hard working and conscientious. He is adaptable and honest. He replaced a bath room in a small one bedroom flat, it was done on time (just) and on budget (easily). There were several problems which Brad took in his stride. His relaxed manor belies an attention to detail. The finished product was of a high standard. Use him, he's good!" Jayne - Balham, SW12

I have been a member of the Premier Chapter since May of 2011. Membership of a group like BNI, and in particular Premier, serves a number of different purposes. As a small business it is important for my business partner and I to keep in regular contact with companies like us in the local area. The regularity of the meetings means that you have to be ‘on message’ and you’re given the freedom (nay required) to present your company, values and services in interesting and engaging ways.
My business partner and I are the ‘London Principal’s’ for a commercial foreign exchange company. We buy and sell currencies to corporates/businesses and individuals. Clapham has a strange mix of potential customers for us, and being connected into them through a dedicated networking channel like Premier is both extremely cost effective and efficient for a time starved enterprise. Frankly, were we not members of Premier it is unlikely we would have encountered the sort of businesses we now have as clients, and that is power of a cogent and consistent networking group.
Networking marketing is the only form of customer interaction we have when it comes to new business. Whilst BNI is not the only form of network marketing we do, it is the back bone, and we have adopted the idea of ‘Giver’s Gain’ as an MO for the way we do business.
BNI does works for us.
