As a director consultant at BNI, I have recently had the opportunity to launch a new chapter, Excel BNI, in my hometown of Swindon.
Launching with a Visitors Day breakfast meeting at the Campanile Hotel, we invited a range of local, talented professionals, from many differing industries, to learn more about the organisation and how you can generate a steady stream of business referrals.
BNI meetings are proven way to discover fantastic business opportunities through "word-of-mouth" marketing, Last year, with members of BNI passing on more than 6.9 million referrals which generated more than £2 billion worth of business for its members.
The Excel BNI chapter is the latest addition to the 6,000 chapters already thriving in the UK and across the world.
We have been working hard behind the scenes in the run up to launching Excel BNI, so it was very gratifying to see a fantastic attendance at the breakfast meeting, with all visitors engaging with each other, swapping business cards and discussing their business and how they are looking to grow it.
If you are interested in joining Excel BNI, please visit the website - httpwww.bni.eu/chapter.php?chapter=2283 - to find out how to get in touch and see how our chapter can grow your business.
