I joined the Blaze Chapter of BNI at the end of April 2014, I was apprehensive at first wondering if I was going to be able to do what was expected or whether I would gain from being a part of the ‘team’. I must say none of this was necessary! My short involvement has produced some great contacts, good leads and some revenue as well! In addition to getting to know a great group of people. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending BNI to anyone who wants to widen their business network. It's done more than I expected in a very short time.

Four years ago, I applied to be a member of the blaze chapter, as my business was very sporadic, and lacked continuity even in the summer. Since joining BNI Blaze my business Advance Building Solutions has managed to sustain a fantastic work load and maintain some consistency during what has been a sustained lack of growth within the United Kingdom during the last three years. To this end, I am most grateful for being introduced to this local business network, in addition to this I have had a pipe dream which has since materialised in to a plan and during the last two years through the support network that BNI offers, I have now managed to build a portfolio of buy to let properties for myself. This would never have happened without the support and advice the various professions from within the BNI, and the friendships that have blossomed since, to this end I am most grateful for being introduced to this wonderful group, and I can’t recommend highly enough to any business that is looking to increase their turnover within Herts and Beds to visit the bni blaze chapter and see for themselves the business opportunities that arise! Yours Sincerely Bob Smith www.advancebuildingsolutions.co.uk

In June 2014, said about BNI Hitchin Blaze

Dear Matt, As a felIow member of BNI Blaze I just wanted to say thank you very much for the great service you have provided over the last few weeks. I referred you to a close friend of mine who had just been burgled during the night when the family were asleep. You responded on the day to ensure they were secure and she was delighted with your service and very grateful for your help. You have then followed up on subsequent occasions, researching specific locks needed for these windows, to provide greater security at the house and peace of mind. You also did a free security review at my home and office. We were keen to make sure that our premises was as secure as possible, not only for our family, but also for our clients as we hold their information on our premises. You gave us practical and common sense advice and left it for us to decide what we wanted to do. You subsequently provided us with additional locks, serviced existing locks and did a number of other pieces of security work and window repair work for us. You have given us not only practical solutions to things needing dealing with but also great peace of mind. The service we received was absolutely first class and you deliver your service professionally, reliably and you know how to provide a great service to your customers. We would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending you to other people we know. Kind regards Lynne Cloud Bookkeeping www.cloudbookkeeping.co.uk/stevenage

In May 2014, said about BNI Hitchin Blaze

Dear Matt As a fellow member of BNI Blaze I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your excellent locksmith expertise and outstanding service. I had been struggling to open my PVC conservatory door at my home for many months, fearing that the only option would be to replace the whole unit at a high price. This had been causing me and my family the inconvenience of not being able to access our garden without a long battle with the door. Now that the summer months have finally arrived, after responding immediately to my call, you have not only solved my problem but you have repaired the inner parts of the door without having to purchase any new parts, saving me a lot of money. Now we can go in and out of the garden with ease. I appreciate your extremely quick response to my call and hard work fixing the locking mechanism inside the door. I would happily and confidently recommend your services to anyone. Kasia www.kasiaburkephotography.co.uk
