BNI (Business Network Int'l.) is a business and professional networking organization that offers members the opportunity to share ideas, contacts and most importantly, referrals.
With over 5,000 chapters worldwide, BNI is the world's largest professional business networking organization.
Belonging to BNI is like having dozens of sales people working for you. All the other members of your chapter carry your business card around with them, so that when they meet someone new that could use your products or services, they are able to hand your card out and recommend your services. In the year 2007 Business Network Int'l passed 5.5 million referrals in 5,200 chapters with over 103,000 members in 37 countries representing more than 2.2 billion US dollars in business for our members.
It's simple because it is based on a proven concept by BNI Founder, Dr Ivan Misner, called "givers gain." If I give you business, you'll give me business and we'll both benefit as a result. If you wish to build a powerful personal network, branch out. Build a diverse network of professional contacts -- with members from various backgrounds.
Quite frankly, BNI is not for everyone. A typical BNI member is someone who prizes the type of new business which comes from word-of-mouth referrals, and is willing and able to make a commitment to bring this about through the BNI program. BNI provides a structured and supportive system of giving and receiving business. It does so by providing an environment in which you develop personal relationships with dozens of other qualified business professionals. By establishing this "formal" relationship with other people, you will have the opportunity to substantially increase your business.
Only one person from each professional specialty is permitted to join a chapter of BNI.
