Weekly networking tips from the Founder & Chairman

INW is an initiative of BNI and is celebrated the first week of February every year around the world.

       Local Business - Global Network®

BNI - Business Network Int’l, is a Business and Professional Referral Networking Organization that offers its members the opportunity to share ideas, contacts and most importantly - referrals. It is the largest Referral Networking Organization with over 170,000 members worldwide. 

What makes BNI unique is that it allows only one person per profession to join a chapter so once you have joined, there is no  conflict in passing referrals and therefore, none of your competitors can participate in that chapter.

Members in Barbados have passed over 38,000 referrals, generating over 19.2million dollars of business amongst each other since our launch in February 2002 … This is truly “Givers Gain” at work!

Members carry around each other's business cards and when they meet someone who need the product or service of another member, they hand out that member business card and share testimonial information about them. It’s like having a team of sales people working to promote your business.

Successful business depends on word-of-mouth referrals. BNI’s unique approach offers a cost effective form of referral generation. BNI’s structured system of giving and receiving referrals creates a supportive and trusting environment for developing serious business relationships. The relationships you develop will convert network contacts into referred business.

Our philosophy is built upon the idea of “Givers Gain” - If I give business to you, you will want to give business to me and we both will do better business. 

Our mission is to help members increase their business through a structured, positive and professional word-of-mouth program that enables them to develop long-term, meaningful relationships with quality business professionals.

We invite you to visit one of our chapter meetings and see how the powerful benefits of referral marketing can help you to grow your business.

"Fact: 98% of businesses rely on referrals to gain new business - 3% have a strategy for referrals"
