BNI Ivel


This Ivel chapter are an established member of the BNI Somerset region and meet just outside Yeovil town centre on Tuesday mornings. I am sure you will be welcomed as effusively as I was.

Jon Majeika the inspirational Chapter Director
Angela Scott will help you save money on your phone bills.
Carly Warren a young lady who apart from quality design and print has been involved in much charity work and who was happy to talk cycling to this tired “Mad Cyclist”
Michael Spencer Yeovil’s very own ex-professional footballer who is specialising in document destruction services and textile recycling. His other claim to fame is that he scored the very first goal at Huish Park. The photo below shows him with Jon Majeika (left) and Terry Skiverton, the Yeovil manager.
Paul Q Cooper content-managed web-site
K. Hannam for all kinds of welding services.

Stephanie D’Albiac-Reay helps you through the labyrinth of computer services. Boom, boom!
Katherine Vickery who impressed me with her geographical knowledge of Dorset!
Rob Smith It’s always good to enjoy some banter with a Man City fan……even at 7am in the morning. Obviously knows a lot more about furniture than football.
Brian Ritchie who has a great strap-line for a cost reduction specialist, “Get Frugal with your Finances”. Classic!
Diana Tellwright-Watkin a very qualified and professional energy assesor.
Phil Stewart-Forshaw for water treatment.
Richard James a friendly solicitor …if that’s not a contradiction in terms. I was impressed – I’m sure you will be
Ian D Dodds What can I say? Ian more than generously allowed me to take his ten minute slot and offered me the opportunity to explain the project. A doughty Scot and a Chartered Accountant ….he told me to expect his invoice! An accountant with a sense of humour … I have seen everything. Thanks, Ian. Your kindness is much appreciated. Seriously!

….and last but not least is the “grumpiest landlord in Somerset” (or was it the world). Those were his words and not mine. I’d like to thank him for his hospitality and friendship. He went above and beyond the call of duty for this tired, hungry and thirsty traveller. THANKS. Yes, let’s say “hi” to the chapter’s very own Pete Lambden who provides one of the very best BNI breakfasts I have ever enjoyed. Top guy!

I would also like to say a special thank you to Somerset’s Executive Director, Paul Clegg. Paul has been following my progress through the UK and was keen that I should visit this flagship chapter. He kindly gave me a tour of Wells which is home-town and also England’s smallest cathedral city. What a beautiful city it is too. Paul IS all that is good in BNI. He is a firm believer in “Givers Gain” and made me very welcome in his home, his city, his region and this chapter. Jon Majeika and Paul certainly know how to treat visitors professionaly and with respect and I thank them sincerely for the opportunity to attend this very special meeting. I have attended dozens of BNI meetings over the past three months. Ivel stands out in my memory.
