Veronica is a renowned Singer, Celebrant, MC, and NLP Master Trainer, with more than 3 decades of experience engaging audiences locally, nationally and internationally.


In her own words, Veronica is "a passionate connector" – whether it’s connecting with someone you love, someone you have lost, or to someone you need to know - she thrives on contributing to the success of others. Veronica has been a proud member of BNI for over 14 years, and currently serves as an Area Launch Director for BNI Melbourne South.

Veronica brings her boundless energy, enthusiasm, and excitement for all things BNI to the conference stage. Having been the conference MC before, she feels privileged to be invited back a second time, and is ready to make it an unforgettable experience for everyone.

Wendy Lloyd Curley is the Executive Director for BNI Sydney North East. She will rock your networking socks off! She is a fun keynote speaker, bestselling author, successful business owner, marketing powerhouse, and, yes, the singer in the band.

Justine’s introduction to BNI was early 2017 when she applied for membership with a launching chapter on the Gold Coast, and she's not looked back since.As a BNI member on the Gold Coast,

Justine grew her business every year of membership and over 60% of her business came from BNI referrals, just because she followed the system.


During her first year of membership, Justine was asked to join the Regional Team as an Ambassador which gave her the privilege of meeting and supporing new members in different chapters, as well as supporting two chapters going through a program called the Diamond Growth Strategy.

Justine was then appointed Director Consultant, giving her the opportunity to work with a leadership team of a local chapter. It was so exciting to see that all the support and care she had put into the chapter alongside the leadership team saw the Chapter become number 1 in Australia 6 times during 2019. Her next role was Area Director, working with 7 Chapters and their Director Consultants in a support capacity, with the largest chapter having 55 members at the time.

In 2018, Justine project managed the first BNI Australia National Conference on the Gold Coast with over 600 attendees. And still to this day, Justine helps to oversee the organizing of the BNI Conference.

In 2020, Justine and her family moved from the Gold Coast to Port Macquarie, NSW, and the very first thing she did was become a BNI member. Soon afterwards, Justine became a Director Consultant, providing support to some more leadership teams and chapters.

Mid 2021, an opportunity arose for Justine to become a BNI Executive Director in Logan and surrounding regions, and knowing this would bring her back home closer to her family, she gladly accepted and today is the proud owner of BNI Brisbane Southside. Starting with only 1 chapter in September 2021, today there is 3 chapters with another couple on the horizon.

With the mindset that “anything is possible”, Justine has seen doors open, opportunities present themselves and new relationships form. BNI has been more than business growth for Justine as her own personal growth has been outstanding. Justine loves what she does, gives generously, and loves to support others to reach their goals.
