“At iNetwork Kelowna, networking
and referral marketing are the
preferred way to do business.”
I have to start by saying I am so so so grateful for all the people that supported this event. It was a pleasant surprise to have close to 200 people come to the event. We have received so many emails from people saying they had a great time; full of education, networking and some great wine at the Okanagan Grow Your Business Event on November 5th.--- Fred Sarkari (Past Member) Key Note Speaker at “Grow Your Business Event with OBRG 2009 – fredsarkari.com
I joined the Okanagan Business Referral Group in June 2011. The energy in the room was exciting. Here was a group of Professional Business People I could see myself doing business with. And that is exactly what happened. Within one month I received a referral from Tanis Read, Realtor with Coldwell Banker. She in turn referred her client to Arron Dow, Lawyer at Farris, and I was able to refer this same client to Mike Hassard for a quote on Life Insurance. We all want to deal with people we trust, like and know. This is a very powerful group and I am happy to have been able to join OBRG! Kelly Wolfe, AMP, Mortgage Broker with Lendingmax--- Kelly Wolfe (Past Member & Past President) LendingMax Kelowna
OBRG has allowed me to be part of a group of like minded professionals who support one another. Business that is obtained because of being recommended is the hardest earned and the most highly valued--- Tanis Read (Past Member) Coldwell Banker Real Estate Kelowna
Networking and referral marketing has been a big part of my business since 2008. I really enjoy the members and team environment that comes from being a member of iNetwork Kelowna. Definitely well worth the investment!--- Mike Hassard (Past Member & Past President) Primerica Kelowna
The professionalism exhibited by each and every member truly puts me at ease in referring a friend, colleague, or client to anyone in iNetwork Kelowna. Knowing that the referral will be taken care of properly is the absolute most important thing to me. I get that peace of mind with this group of like minded business leaders--- Sean Hoogendam (Past Member)
I believe in the power of referrals.
In Kelowna, people hire people they know and trust regardless of qualifications.
To be fully qualified in your field and be part of the Inetwork is a winning combination.
My business development and success would have been impossible without the Inetwork.
The friendship, education and connections that come with my membership have proved to be invaluable.
In the first year of Greenwave Construction’s operation, 50% of my work came from the Inetwork group directly and 20% came from referrals.
I can’t emphasize the importance of being part of a Referral Network any stronger. Without the iNetwork, Greenwave would not have succeeded.--- Dave Federici Owner General Manager Greenwave Construction
Our group was originally founded almost 20 years ago by dedicated Kelowna business men and women who guaranteed their products/services and realized the power of networking & referrals.
iNetwork Kelowna has “exclusive” membership – only one representative from each business category can be a member at the same time.
iNetwork Kelowna offers the best membership rate in town. As a member, you will only pay $15.00 for the cost of your breakfast, billed quarterly, in advance. There are no additional membership fees.
Groups like iNetwork Kelowna are only as good as it's membership. We are fortunate to have some of the Okanagan's finest business owners as members. (Of course we are little biased).
We believe that networking is a great way to meet like-minded business professionals and introduce our business to others.
We believe referral marketing is the most effective way of marketing your business.
We believe that giving back to the community is essential to our business success.
We believe each member brings unique skills & expertise that we all learn and benefit from.
