Referral Planning Meetings
Referral Planning Meetings are conducted within Strategic Referral Teams. They are specially designed meetings enabling team members to educate other members in how each can assist the others. They may be both 1-2-1 and group meetings.

4 ways to Spice Up Your Humdrum Referral Meeting
Within any given referral organisation, there are groups and there are groups. While there are similarities, no two are the same. Some are humming along with 40-50 members while others are floundering with 12-18 and delivering limited benefits to members. Some outliers have 70-80 members. Others are in single digits.
The groups that are humming along are probably best left to follow the same agenda since it’s working for them. However, the groups that are floundering have often lost faith in the current agenda to deliver benefits and this significantly affects their outcomes. After all, belief in the system is a large part of what makes people follow the system and make no mistake… the agenda is a large part of the system!
So if you’re in a group that’s struggling, buck the trend and try something new. Here’s the thing… too many small groups slide to their doom by doing the same ole same ole and expecting a different result.
Here are 4 sure-fire ways to create a vibe in the room to get your group back on track and producing results…
Before undertaking any of these, ensure your group is primed to invite. There are two approaches to make this happen with struggling groups. Each requires specialist training
Whatever you do, don’t put on yet another Visitor Day with the same ole same ole agenda in force that didn’t work last time!! DON’T PUT YOUR MEMBERS THROUGH THE PAIN OF DOING THAT AGAIN. This is often the trigger that quickly sees the decline of struggling groups as they believe nothing can save them.
There’s a better way. Contact me and let’s work on which of the two approaches you’d like for your group.

Chances are your website is the flagship of your business’s marketing effort. It’s the first of your marketing collateral prospects will see.

Too often, business owners work hard to attract referrals only to have the prospect check out their website prior to meeting them face-to-face and the website looks like a 9-year-old put it together.
