Iíve always been a connector; Iíve always enjoyed that. My professional success has always been attributed to the fact that I put a lot of emphasis on my team and teamwork; Iíve always had a desire to see othersí succeed.
Building business relationships and connecting people isnít just a job to BNI executive director, Braith Bamkin. Even as a child, his father recalls his nurturing and inclusive nature, and Braithís need to connect people. As a small boy, Braith worked hard to make sure everyone felt comfortable and valued, and made an effort to include and engage others in conversation, and introduce new people to each other.
Braithís intrigue with connection and workplace relationships lead him to achieve an undergraduate degree in organisational psychology. ďIf we donít look after each other, then whatís the point? It doesnít take much effort to try and make people feel good,Ē says Braith. ďIíve always been a connector; Iíve always enjoyed that. My professional success has always been attributed to the fact that I put a lot of emphasis on my team and teamwork; Iíve always had a desire to see othersí succeed.Ē www.bni.com.au
