Members rewarded for outstanding contributions

Last Friday, I was honoured to host another well attended local event with a difference, the Elli chapter of Business Network International (BNI) Annual Awards Dinner at the Diplomat Hotel, Llanelli.

This was the fourth year that the event had been held at this location and each year does not disappoint. The local businesses involved in BNI Elli ensured that this was another great success.

Worthy members of the BNI Group were awarded for their outstanding contributions to the Llanelli chapter’s success and the work that they do within the surrounding area.

The winners this year were:

Gary Davies, of Dyfed Fencing Services, Llandeilo.

Sarah Stallard, of Gomer Williams Solicitors, Llanelli.

Donald Melrose, of Business Growth Mentors, Llanelli.

There are so many great businesses out there in our local communities and this was evident on the night.  Many loyal readers of this column and blog will already know of my passion to encourage, support and promote local business, talent and worthy causes.

The BNI business support network supports my values and there is clear evidence to suggest that its members are already distributing millions of pounds in additional revenue throughout south Wales.

It’s very true you know, great things can happen when you surround yourself with the right people, try it!
