Networking Expert Lives His Own Message

Dr. Ivan Misner knows how to get people working together. The company he created, BNI, attests to that. It’s the world’s largest networking organization. But it is this business leader’s philanthropic deeds that will have people coming together this November in California.

Dr. Ivan Misner, whose business and seven books have made him a sought-after speaker and #1 best-seller, is being honored on Saturday, November 13th, for his less famous, but nevertheless substantial charitable work.

Founder of the BNI-Misner Charitable Foundation, Dr. Misner has spent years volunteering for and serving on the board of the LeRoy Haynes Center for Children and Family Services. Together with his wife, Beth, he will be honored at a Gala Dinner for his years of charitable work. This after just releasing his latest best-seller, whose subject is something Dr. Misner knows something about: success.

In his latest book, Masters of Success (Entrepreneur Press, 2004), Misner brings together a “dream team” of the successful to talk in forum about their various ideas of success.

Asked what success means to him, Misner said, “success is being able and willing to give help to the people you see who need it. Success is knowing what is important. Beth and I are excited about the upcoming night in our honor because it means more funding for the LeRoy Haynes Center. And that means they can continue to do the work they do that is so important. To me, that is success.”

The LeRoy Haynes Center will be offering different sponsorship levels in the form of special table reservations and ad opportunities. The night’s proceeds will go to help fund the continuing education to help foster healthy families and healthier, happier children.

Ivan Misner, Ph.D. is founder & CEO of BNI (Business Network Int’l), a referral networking organization with Chapters in 19 countries around the world. He is also the author of several books including the NY Times best-seller, “Masters of Networking,” and the recently released #1 best-seller, “Masters of Success.”
