Local LeTip chapter celebrates 30th anniversary

Morgan Hill florist Amy Osako-Aochi, restaurant owner Rosy Bergin and attorney J. Randall Toch—along with 15 other local small business owners—are members of LeTip of Morgan Hill, a business networking group with a unique structure for generating quality sales referrals to business in non-competing industries.

This week, LeTip of Morgan Hill celebrated its 30th anniversary of building business relationships. LeTip of Morgan Hill is a chapter of the world’s largest privately owned business referral network, LeTip International. 

With 15 members in industries such as finance, real estate, travel, and insurance, the goal of the chapter is to help all members reach their business goals through the simple strategy of building relationships and giving referrals.

“With 30 years of receipts, LeTip of Morgan Hill members know the role that strong networking relationships can serve in helping small businesses grow through genuine referrals,” said Kim Marie Branch-Pettid, CEO & Owner of LeTip. “We congratulate our Morgan Hill members for marking this milestone, especially after such a challenging year for small businesses.”

All members of LeTip of Morgan Hill are responsible for regularly exchanging business tips among other members. Only one representative of any given profession is accepted into a chapter, so referrals and tips for any services or products are funneled to that member representing that industry.

The LeTip of Morgan Hill chapter is accepting new members and meets at Rosy’s at the Beach every Wednesday at 7am to exchange qualified leads and build business relationships with other professionals in the area. Those interested in joining can visit LeTip of Morgan Hill’s website at 

LeTip is open to those working in virtually every industry, including home services and real estate, banking and finance, health and medicine, insurance, travel, fitness, business services, legal, public relations, event planning, creative services, technology, and more.
