BNI MEMBER SUCCESS STORIES
Since engaging BNI, I have grown my business turnover over 4 fold and have 8 staff and am on target to double my business again in the next 3 years. The contacts, business and networking skills I have gained from BNI is the primary reason for my success.
BNI has challenged me to determine my ‘why’ and has given me the tools to communicate my ‘why’ effectively. I’m now converting 85% more sales leads with higher value clients
I have been in BNI for 9 years now and it really has been the most incredible journey. I have grown as a person and business owner and have met so many wonderful people that will be life long business colleagues and friends. There is so much support from an organisation like BNI and today the business that I am receiving from my chapter accounts for 30% of my total business. I can't imagine being in business and not being in BNI.
BNI has taught me how to develop key referral partnerships with other businesses that meet my customers before I do. In the last quarter, sales generated through BNI has accounted for a third of my turnover.
BNI has provided a platform to build my business by exposing me to a thriving and supportive network, this has not only allowed my business to evolve and flourish, it has opened doors that have led to personal growth and professional success.
