A DIRECTOR at one of the north-east’s leading accountancy firms has achieved a £1m business networking milestone.

Lisa Bruce, a director at Acumen Accountants and Advisors, has joined the Millionaire Givers’ Club after achieving the remarkable feat of passing on business referrals over seven years at a BNI Scotland North business networking group.

Lisa is a member of the BNI Energy and has been in BNI for more than 7 years. The group meets every week at the Jurys Inn Aberdeen Airport to share potential leads, build relationships and network with other like-minded business people for around three hours.

BNI Scotland North has 16 networking groups, with six in Aberdeen, two Dundee and further groups in Inverness, Elgin, Inverurie, Stonehaven, Montrose, Peterhead, Perth and Dunfermline. BNI Scotland North, which has more than 380 members, is owned by Aberdeen-based Angela and Bryan Kinghorn.

Angela, executive director at BNI Scotland North, said: “We’re delighted to recognise Lisa’s achievement of passing on £1m worth of business to BNI members over the past seven years. This a remarkable feat and one that typifies the givers’ gain attitude of business networking in BNI.”

Lisa, who has been with Acumen for nearly 20 years, said: “BNI represents the most important part of my business networking strategy at Acumen. I’ve found that by helping others there is a huge commitment to give something back.

“BNI works due to the regular meetings that help to build trusted relationships between members. I’m delighted to be recognised by BNI Scotland North.”
Acumen has offices in Portlethen, near Aberdeen, and Peterhead.

BNI (Business Network International) is the largest face-to-face business networking referral organisation in the world, with more than 260,000 members in over 9000 groups operating across 70 countries.

In 2018, BNI Scotland North generated more than £15m worth of business for members. Scotland North members have access to more than 12000 members in the UK and Ireland. BNI was founded by Dr Ivan Misner in the United States in 1985.

Members pay a joining fee and a monthly fee to be part of a group, which holds weekly meetings. Each group is formed on a competitor-free basis; only one business from a specific market sector is included in each group.
