Now, more than ever, business people need to network to stay in business. BNI provides a positive, supportive, and structured environment to exchange quality business referrals.BNI is the largest business networking organization in the world. We offer members the opportunity to share ideas, contacts and most importantly, business referrals.
Last year Members of BNI passed thousands of referrals, which generated over 4$ Billion dollars worth of business for each other! BNI is a business and professional referral organization that allows only one person from each profession to join a chapter.
Belonging to BNI is like having dozens of sales people working for you because all the other members carry several copies of your business cards around with them. When they meet someone who could use your products or services they hand your card out and recommend your services. It's as simple as that!
It's simple because it's based on the proven concept of "what goes around, comes around." If I help you, you'll help me and we will both benefit as a result. Would you like to increase your business by 20%, 30%, 50% or as much as 100%? You can see results like this! Many have. Some participants have added as many as 50 new clients in the first 2 years!!!
In 2016, BNI members passed over 8.8 million referrals, in over 7,835 chapters, with over 211,000 members, in 65 countries, which resulted in more than $11.2 Billion in business, worldwide!
