The BNI system is changing the way the world does business with more and more people realising that networking is not a place, a venue or a time of the week. True networking is all about what you choose to do for others in between meetings. The meetings themselves are to report what you have done and to educate each other about what you each want the rest to look out for in the 7 days ahead.

Members of BNI passed 7.1 million referrals in 2015 which equated to a staggering £6.4 Billion in business referred between members.

'The BNI system of referral based networking is specifically designed to work in members businesses as opposed to something to which you just turn up and hope for opportunity to appear; hope is definitely not a strategy for success. BNI members understand that the true basis of networking is not about attending a meeting, it is all about what you do for others between meetings.' Said Rick Armstrong, BNI Area Director - West Yorkshire
