Danny Bledsoe

"Dr. Misner's teachings and organizations (BNI and Referral Institute) have been instrumental in integrating me into the civilian culture following more than eight years in the U.S. Army. I have learned a great deal from him about relating to others far beyond business. It is my pleasure to highly recommend Dr. Misner as an author, organizational leader, and mentor."

Amadou M. Sall

"I'm genuinely honored and delighted to be in the network of a person the great Thomas Power himself calls "The world's greatest Networker". Thanks a lot for connecting, Ivan. "

Christine MacJouvelet

"I have been a member of BNI for over 8 years in Melbourne Australia and had the pleasure of meeting Ivan here in Melbourne when he was last out here. What you see is what you get. Ivan is an approachable gentleman who has managed to found and maintain the BNI organisation for many years and has had the focus, motivation and inspiration that has inspired many to follow his business referral system. I have attended meetings at Rickmansworth London and all around Australia. No matter where you go the basics are always followed. I have seen other copy cat groups rise up and fall, where BNI continues to grow. The main reason for this I believe is Ivan has got the fundamentals right and doesn't waiver from them. Congratulations Ivan it is a great pleasure to be part of your network. Cheers Chrissy "

Ronald L. Taylor

"It is an honour to be connected with you on Ecademy. I look forward to our networks being of mutual benefit to one another."

Rick Itzkowich

"Dr.Misner has been very influential in my business life through BNI. I have been a BNI member for 10 years and BNI has accounted for a very large portion of my business. His books have also been very instructive in becoming a better networker. He embodies BNI's philosophy of "givers gain" and he will go out of his way to help people reach their goals."

Tord Sand

"Proactive, progressive, forward moving personality makes a contact with you like a very pleasant journey, so thank you for being in my network here! And thank you so much Dr. Ivan for all knowledge and inspiration you have give me and all the members of BNI and entrepreneurs that visit the refferal meetings world wide, that is something worth so much that words can not describe it enough. Warm regards Tord G. Sand WellnessCoach www.wellnesscenter.cc NetworkCoach www.bni.com"

Ronald Goovaerts

"ivan, words are too short, none can express who you are, what you have done, what you are doing and what you will do, continue"

Ruth Thirtle

"I have never met Ivan but his baby (rather large now!) BNI has been a huge benefit to me. I have been involved in BNI as a member for 2 years and for the last 6 months as an Assistant Director. The personal development on offer through BNI in terms of coaching and public speaking is amazing and that is completely separate from the business that is done through the referrals. Ivan, you have completely changed the way that I do business and I thank you for that. Giver's Gain is completely a part of my life now and I believe I am a better human being and business person for that. Thank you so much!"

Marilyn Haldane

"Ivan, you changed my life. (That's a good thing!!) It was either 1997 or 1998 (so long ago now, I can't remember) when I received a phone call from an ex-colleague telling me, "Marilyn, you absolutely MUST go to one of these meetings!" She had 'subbed' for her partner at a BNI meeting on the North Shore of Sydney, Australia. To cut a VERY long story short, I did attend a meeting in Sydney CBD, joined that chapter; the following year became an Assistant Director starting groups in the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney. November 2000, found me in Michigan, USA where I joined a BNI chapter and the following year became an Assistant Director in that region. I am now an Executive Director of BNI in Australia. BNI has allowed me to grow tremendously. (NO, not in size! Well, not ONLY!) I am told by so many people that BNI has done so much more for them than grow their business. They have grown personally and have close relationships with people that they may never have met any other way. Ivan has developed an organisation that invites people all over the world to help others and thereby help themselves. What a magnificent concept! Thank you, Ivan."

Danish Thanvi

"I'm very happy to be connected with Ivan on Ecademy and look forward to being of mutual benefit to one another."

Dan McGill

"I recently joined BNI. My fledgling company had been struggling to make a foothold in my 'industry'. After joining BNI, my turnover has grown month on month. My client list has grown exponentially. My 'Brand' is starting to be recognised. As Dr Ivan Misner says ' Don't Be A Survivor, Be A Thriver'. With all the doom and gloom around, thank heavens for BNI. Thank You Dr Misner! To paraphrase an advertisement running on British radio at present - 'If someone offers you the opportunity to grow your business, to interact with like-minded business people, and have fun at the same time.....GRAB IT!'"

TSUFIT Author, Step Into The Spotlight!

"Ivan, Thank you so much for your kind endorsement of my book, Step Into The Spotlight! Not only were you generous with your praise on the back cover of the book, you went the extra mile and gave it a 5 star review on the homepage of the BNI website internationally. I am truly honored. Tsufit Author, Step Into The Spotlight!"

Lindsay Adams

"I have not met Ivan personally, though I have experienced his networking magic and generosity. Thanks Ivan for edifying me to so many people at the BNI Brisbane South Region Big breakfast recently. You are a true legend."

Niri S Patel

"This mans idea in 1985 has created a global organisation where some 103,000 business leaders attend a weekly meeting which follows the same format globally. On that basis alone, It's a no brainer- you can learn something of real value by being around Ivan be it in his company, reading one of his many books or articles. Ivan, thankyou for all that you do - it touches and changes people lives on a daily basis, by empowering people to take control of their own commercial destiny through the power of word of mouth marketing and networking.Best of all, it gets RESULTS!"

David Hunt

"I am one of the thousands of people around the world who has greatly benefited from Ivan's brainchild, Business Networking International (BNI). I recommend it to everyone who wants more business referals."

Koshy Samuel, MBA

"Good to be connected to The Father of networking."

Graham Southwell

"Ivan is "the father of business networking" and it is good to see that he is involved in Ecademy."

Rich Guard

"Ivan's interest in expanding his circle of influence speaks volumes about his character, and it is a man's character that determines his success in business. As an executive coach, I start with the philosophical assumption that we are all perfect, so if a "good" rating is the highest we can give each other, then good you are. I look forward to exploring areas of mutual interest and benefit."

Niiraj R. Shah

"Dr Misner is a networking GENIUS. His simple and effective BNI system is helping over 100,000 entrepreneurs & professional aound the world generate over 2 BILLION dollars of business. His understanding of the networking process is second to none. When business schools start giving Networking classes D. Misner's work would be considered "the" work to read first! I personally am truely indebted by his generosity and inspired by his passion for networking! His philosophy of GIVER GAIN resonates with people around the world! Thank you for being a Networking Pioneer"

Hélder Falcão

"It has been nearly 4 years since I invited Dr. Misner to join Ecademy! The BNI KL 08 Worldwide Conference had the pleasure of having Thomas and Penny Power as wonderful speakers! BNI and Ecademy, The Online and the Face-To-Face networking will have a very long life together! Thank you Dr. Misner for your vision and congratulations for the sucess in Changing the Way the World does Business! Kindest Regards, Hélder Falcão National Director BNI Portugal and Brazil Ecademy Portugal Country Leader"

Frederick Marcoux

"At a BNI international members conference in Kuala Lumpur, Ivan delivered a great presentation on the contents of his new book, "The 29% Solution". Thank you Ivan for this book, which is yet another really good tool you are making available to those committed to further developing their networking skills. I certainly will be promoting this book in Australia!"

Daniel-Flavius Lucica

"Ivan is a man of vision, one that deeply understood the human needs of expression and interconnection and then applied this knowledge efficiently, with the help of new technologies, in an empowering new way and at a global scale. He upgraded Networking to version 2.0. "

Thomas Power

"The world's greatest Networker period."

Selenium Chai

"Thank you Dr Misner for being there and all the sharing at the KL08 International Conference. I really enjoyed your sessions and your stories (we would recall about your mum's story and laugh all over again!). For your info I just joined BNI in Feb this year, and the only thing I regretted is not joining it earlier! The friendships we've developed and the referrals given have actually far exceeded what I've expected initially. Thank you once again for starting BNI and also sharing with us your vision for it during the conference! Selenium Chai Premier Chapter, Singapore"

Bob Nicoll

"Ivan Misner has taken a wonderful concept of word of mouth referral marketing and with the creation of BNI has fostered a pro-active culture of business people who are changing the way the world does business. Truly a remarkable example of the butterfly effect in action. It is a pleasure to be a part of the BNI family. Bob Nicoll Chief Paradigm Shifter Remember the Ice www.remembertheice.com bob.nicoll@remembertheice.com"

Ronald Wopereis

"It is true that it may take about two months to get this guy on the phone for an hour, but i tell you its worth the while Indeed someone i would like to learn more often from. Ivan radiates this "givers gain" energy of his. It's absolutely wonderful to feel it ! Thanks Ivan. You're a great guy. best regards, Ron"

stephen heasman

"I have been in the BNI now for nearly 1 year, and as they say now 'the penny has dropped' I like to think i am a individual, well I am , so I deep down fought with some of the rules and structure. Today I went to a training session headed by Phil Berg, it was good and he did his job well today. 3 hours no break , it was not boring, it flowed and time did not drag, I was surprised how I did enjoy it, well done Phil. But now i am beginning to realise what a great format it is, and it works. So thanks to Dr Misner for BNI and also for being in my network, and having me in his. regards Steve"

Andreja Lajh

"Great persons are those ones who are recognized also by their great humanity. He absolutely is that. The worlds most famous networker and excellent businessman is also a great human being who is always ready to help and has an outstanding sense of humour. (I just love your autoresponders ;-)) From one of my USA contacts here at Ecademy I've heared that dr. Ivan Misner is promoting the networking event that I'm organizing in Ljubljana between his BNI members. I was surprised and happy. I would never dare to ask him for help - he did it without being asked. A really great person! Thank you Ivan. I hope some day I can be helpful to you too. Just count on me."

William Buist

"Ivan is a Master of Networking in all the sense of the word. I first came across his work long before joining Ecademy and have enjoyed meeting him here, both on-line and in person. He is genuine, possibly one of the most consistent people I know, with a sense of fun and humour that enables people to be at their best. He generously gives of his time and knowledge and shares resources freely because he is that rarity, he is someone who really does live his life according to all the tenets of his philosophy. Thank you Ivan, for teaching me much that I use every day."

Sarah Owen

"I have worked in Dr Misner's organisations for seven years now and no sense of a seven year itch. He is a true inspiration and support to us at Referral Institute team UK. His vision, commitment, skills and wisdom are key to our success and that of our clients. On a personal level he tells us "no one cares how much you know until they know how much you care" and he truly walks his talk. His knowledge is bordering on ridiculous - each time I learn something he comes up with something more, but his personal touch is a constant reminder that he clearly cares deeply about people. "

Anthony Mellor FCA, Tel 0121 314 4750

"A breath of fresh air - Ivan brightened my day or even my year with his responses (including future action by him) to me and his instant energy, all action not chatter. No ifs buts or maybe's. Where he speaks of networking we MUST listen. Brilliant. Anthony"

Claude Bonte

"One Word 'Visionary' (who walks his talk) ! "

Penny Power

"There is not a meeting that I have or a training course that I deliver where I do not mention Dr. Ivan Misner, he is our Networking Guru, his principles and values are extraordinary and his knowledge of networking unsurpassed. Thank you Ivan for all you do for business owners and entrepreneurs the world over."

John Kenworthy

"A privilege to be in Ivan's network - hopefully I will catch some of his entrepreneurial wisdom and vision."

Bharat R A

"Ivan is a wonder person and a great Networker. He goes that an extra mile to offer his support. Highly recommended to get connected with. Bharat"

Cornelia Gustafzon

"Ivan is a true entrepreneur and role model. His experience, wisdom and knowledge both impressed and inspired me! I can really recommend his books and seminars. If you have the possibility to attend a BNI-meeting, do it! You won´t regret it! Ivan I wish you all the best and I look forward to meeting you soon! Cornelia"

Jim Edgar

"I've had the pleasure of meeting and working with Ivan Misner on a couple of occasions. He is all people say and more, a true Gentleman, great company and forever giving. He even found me a collector with the same twisted hobby as mine 10 mins after we had discussed our passion for antiques! His networking abilities are well publicised and well proven. "

Robert WoW De Souza

"BNI is a powerful brand name thank to the powerful vision of Ivan as the founder. He has really raised the bar and shown people how one can build a rock solid business on referrals. He is the master who has set standards which many do not replicate. Ivan is talented, creative, gifted and wants to make a big difference to peoples lives. I wish him every success."

Tim Coe

"I'd like to thank Ivan for following his vision and having the tenacity to push BNI to the stage it's at today. As a member on BNI Elmbridge (Surrey, England), BNI provides me with countless opportunities to increase my business which I cannot see me finding anywhere else. I've met Ivan and can say he's open, genuine and warm. I'd very much like to meet him again. Thanks Ivan for starting something that's changed my life."

Graeme Nichol

"BNI was my introduction to focused networking, and of course, Ivan Misner. Our businesses and lives have thrived because of your teachings. Now, while, many have created networking groups, BNI is still the leader. To you, Sir. "

Younas Aamir

"Dr. Ivan Misner - a name in Modern Networking. It is my honor to be in his networking. "

Paula Frazier

"Dr. Misner is the truly the "Father of Modern Networking". As Founder of BNI, he positively impacts the bottom line of nearly 100,000 business professionals on a weekly basis. Dr. Misner is also Senior Partner of Referral Institute, the world's leading referral training, coaching and consulting company. His day EVERY day is about the success of others. My businessess have benefited greatly as a result of my participation in both of these incredible organizations...and my continued relationship with Dr. Misner himself!!!"

Thomas Power

"In my view the greatest Networker that still walks the planet in modern times. 94,000 people a week go to a (Ivan Misner) BNI Business breakfast. That's 22 years of hard graft in over 30 countries. How can any us mere mortals match that? And what's more a charming humble person who likes a little drink too! I tip my hat to The Master. "

Nigel Whittaker

"I had the pleasure of meeting with Ivan this week and he really is the Elvis of networking. Ivan thank you for your stories, thank you for your advice and keep blazing the trail so that we may follow!"

"I had the privilege of meeting Ivan yesterday and not only seeing him present but also interviewing him on camera. He clearly practices what BNI preaches - Givers gain. Ivan is a true giver. The rest of us are very fortunate that he happens to have so much knowledge, experience and expertise that he can give. And he does it in such an elegant and engaging manner. Thank you Ivan."

Victor Marques

"In life we learn from the waves, from the ocean and sea! Flowers, vineyards, my land in my heart will be! Such an amazing and dearest man i found in Ecademy! "

Harun Rabbani

"Dr Misner is, without a doubt, the single most influential man in the world of networking and referral-based selling. He is the leading pioneer that has taken the concept of word-of-mouth business to highly competitive markets to a truly global scale. In the process, helping transform people's lives. Congratulations, Ivan!"

Jonathan McHarg

"Since becoming a member of BNI, I have totally commited to the methods designed by Dr Misner. I would now say that in the past 9 months, the methods learned in BNI and from Dr Misners speaches have made is possible to tripple the size of my business."

Geoffrey Perkins

"Dr Ivan Misner is best known for founding BNI but he also has a leading role in The Referral Institute. The Referral Institute is a word of mouth referral marketing training company and coincidentally is involved in the training of BNI Directors worldwide. The Referral Institute is worth investigating if you are serious about growing your business by means of word of mouth marketing. I have attended 2 Referral Institute courses and they have transformed the way that I conduct my business."

Trey McAlister

"As the foremost authority on Business Networking and Referrals, Dr. Misner is a powerful, "results oriented" example of a professional that truly "walks the talk." Regardless of whether he is working with corporate executives, academics, or entrepreneurs, he also takes the concept of "strategic alliances" to a whole new level in business."

Rod Sloane

"If you get a chance to hear Ivan speak, I encourage you to grasp that opportunity. If you have a chance to talk with him, drop everything else. In the meantime try reading his books. The World's Best Known Marketing Secret is a must read for any serious business networker."

Thomas Power

"Without doubt the world's greatest business networker of all time. 72,000 members, 3,600 chapters, 22 countries and all since 1984. One day the world will recognise the contribution of Dr Misner to uniting our little planet earth. I do."

Mindy Gibbins-Klein

"Ivan is one of the most intelligent, genuine and down-to-earth people I've ever met. Despite running a huge organization, he is extremely apporachable and truly values people in his network. A master storyteller, Ivan is someone you definitely need to get to know better! "

Eduarda De Castro

"Some people are successful by change, or because they are lucky, others by own Merit, Dr Ivan Misner, most certainly falls into that last category, and definitely deserves all his success! I'll echo Kerry's words 'You are a wonderful man'. Thank you, Eduarda"

Andy Ferguson

"I was suitably impressed by Ivan's prompt and witty reply to my request to how I could help him. Good to see the head man at BNI is happy to share his sence of humour and ideas on successful networking. Cheers Dr Misner"

Hélder Falcão

"After attending the BNI's International Conference at the Hyatt Regency Long Beach, in Long Beach, California I had the honour of personally meeting Dr. Ivan Misner. The conference was extraordinary, with impressive speakers, an intensive networking environment and a mind blowing learning curve! After spending some time explaining Ecademy to Dr. Ivan Misner, I personally invited him and he gladly accepted. With over 20 years of Networking Expertise, your contribute to the Networking World is impressive. Thank you very much for the excellent time we spent together and for accepting my invitation. We are all looking forward to seeing you again. Here is to a long life to BNI and Ecademy! Our best regards, Helder, Sofia and Beatriz! "

Liz Z i t z o w

"I was a member of BNI for two years, wherein I greatly improved my networking skills. It's a learn by doing environment, codified in such a way that both strong and weak learners alike gain key interpersonal networking skills necessary to running a an SME business. Even people working in larger businesses can benefit if the structure is autonomous sales subdivisions (like a Big Four or a bank branch). Although I've since moved on, I highly recommend giving BNI a go. What you learn will be well worth the effort."
