Get Involved in Friends and Family Week
During week commencing 15th June, thousands of BNI members across the country will be introducing their friends and family to the wonderful world of online business networking!
We are very excited to be running Friends and Family week which will take place across the whole of the UK & Ireland. It’s an exciting opportunity to demonstrate exactly what happens every week at these mysterious BNI meetings! It’s also a fantastic way to show off our brilliant BNI members to a wider audience.
In the past we’ve seen many different ways that our chapters have embraced Friends and Family week. Some chapters have made the meeting really family friendly where their children have presented on behalf of the members. We’ve seen grandparents, parents and partners all invited to share the business networking experience and it has been wonderful.
At BNI, our members are business professionals who help each other grow their businesses through their commitment to our principal core value, Givers Gain®.
Our chapter meetings provide a positive, supportive, and structured environment for the development and exchange of quality business referrals.
Our members enjoy countless benefits including:
Increased Business Prospects through referrals
Professional Development with access to exclusive training programmes, guest speaker webinars and workshops.
Great Networking Opportunities with participation in up to 50 networking meetings per year with exposure to many other business professionals in your community.
Exclusive Member Resources with access to a range of tools and educational materials on networking, public speaking and business best practices.
If you’re already a member of BNI, we encourage you to participate and embrace the opportunity that Friends and Family week offers.
For those new to BNI, we welcome you to experience one of our friendly chapter meetings where you can browse everything that BNI has to offer, without any obligation. For the time being, our meetings are held online, and millions of pounds are still being generated. This is a great opportunity for you to visit and connect with a vast network of business leaders that want to pass you business.
