Ok Tony, there is only so much I can take (for those I cc’d please see Tony’s reply to my email included below). Does proper business etiquette include talking behind someone’s back? Does it include taking criticism on your business as personal? If that is the definition of proper etiquette then I want no part of it. Personally, I find it hard to believe that I am the younger one out of the two of us. Hope this helps in your future business.

c.c. Leadership Group of Success Unlimited – FYI: I for one believe in transparency, which is why I elected and continue to elect to include everyone in the chapter on these communications. I have enough etiquette not to hide my actions. P.P.S. I embrace constructive criticism and detest that given in a condescending manner.

Personally, I have pretty thick skin and don’t mind taking a shot across my bow every now and then.  However, I’d like to give you a little insight on what is proper business etiquette.  Taking a personal shot at the Executive Director of BNI, not once, but twice, during my last two chapter visits is not conducive to good business.  You really shouldn’t stand up in front of a room full of people and tell anyone what you “personally” think about their web page or their business cards.  That isn’t the best way to get a referral.  You need to talk to folks about the benefit your services provide on a personal and professional level and be specific on who you would like to meet or what target market you are looking for.  Hope this helps in your future Sales Manager Minutes (60 seconds).

Best regards,
Tony Dziadul

Thank you for taking the time to attend our chapter meeting. It is always nice to see and have the input of BNI’s Executive Director of Southeastern Virginia. I thought it might be of value to provide a little more details on the reference made during my 60 seconds to ensure there are no hard feelings.

As a web designer and marketer I understand the value of a professional online presence. Since the purpose of BNI is “Increasing your business through referrals”, I thought perhaps you might be able to provide me with such a referral for your own business.

Keeping the purpose of BNI in mind, I am modifying my suggestion and propose you consider allowing webmasters in all your chapters to bid for the opportunity to redesign the local BNI site. I suspect all regional BNI members, your customers, will benefit from a more professional web presence. I also suspect that if done properly, your business will also benefit along with BNI’s general image.

Please take this email and my past communications exactly as they are: Suggestions from one of your customers.

I am a candid person, which is an attribute that has served me well and one of the reasons I decided to write this email.

Thank you once again for attending our chapter meeting; it is always a pleasure seeing you. I look forward to hearing your feedback regarding my suggestion.

Southeastern Virginia BNI updates

For those watching this page, recent research has revealed that one of the directors of the Southeastern Virginia BNI, Lisa Renz, is the administrative contact for . This is significant since the other executive director director of this BNI chapter, Tony Dziadul, is promoting the services that are offered by this site during BNI meetings he attends.

I can only imagine what the franchise owners would think of such an activity, but one of their chapter's website specifically states the following, "2. Members must represent their primary occupation, not a part-time business." As said, I cannot fathom how the owners of the BNI franchise would react after finding out that executive directors Lisa Renz and Tony Dziadul appear to have violated this rule.

Now I decided it is important to back up this information with evidence, included below is the whois registration data for

Renz, Lisa
c/o Network Solutions
P.O. Box 447
Herndon, VA 20172-0447

Ironically, it appears Lisa Renz attempted to make this registration anonymous, as evidenced by the email address, nonetheless her name still appears within the whois information.

Anyways, that is the latest update on the Southeastern Virginia BNI chapter and their executive directors Lisa Renz and Tony Dziadul. Those with other factual findings are encouraged to submit the information via the contact form on our website.
