What is BNI?

Your Partner in Business

Business owners and leaders have a continual challenge of how to grow their organisation and, as the old saying goes, it's lonely at the top! If you're looking for new ways to grow your business, to establish a strong support network of like minded leaders or develop your professional skill-set, then read on.

At BNI our sole aim is to help businesses and individuals grow. Our members share over £520m of business a year in the UK & Ireland alone - we'd love to show you how.


If you've never heard of BNI, take a look at this very short film...

  • It's not just networking
  • It's focused on generating referral business with a group of professionals working for each other
  • It's about sharing challenges and ideas with colleagues that want to help
  • It's about learning new skills to help you grow your business in the direction you want to go

Jane Buchan, Glasgow: Property

“My partner initially joined BNI, and one day he asked me to substitute for him. He said I’d love it, and I did! I’d been looking for investors and professional contacts, so I joined a nearby group.

“As well as lots of new clients, the BNI training has helped me to become a far more confident presenter, and I think I’ve learned how to network properly. Being a member of BNI is now central to how we run our business. And the exclusivity means you lock out your competitors.

“So if you have the chance to join, don’t lose out!”
