BNI RANKED IN THE TOP 3 OF FORBES “6 ESSENTIAL LOCAL SMALL BUSINESS ASSOCIATIONS YOU SHOULD BELONG TO”

WHAT IS BNI

BNI is a professional business networking organisation that allows only one person from each trade or profession to participate in a local chapter. BNI has over 2,40,000 members worldwide, in 72+ countries… all of whom have benefited from increased referral business as a result of BNI.

Businesses rely on referrals and BNI can help get them. What goes around comes around. If I help you, you’ll help me and we will both benefit as a result. This is a unique platform that integrates face to face networking with an online social network connecting thousands of professionals globally.

Participating in BNI is like having dozens of salespeople working for you! Members are committed to helping each other with business opportunities and when they meet someone who could use your products or services they hand your card out and recommend your services. It’s as simple as that!

OUR PHILOSOPHY

The philosophy of this organisation is built upon the idea of “Givers Gain®”: By giving business to others, you will get business in return. This is predicated on the age-old idea of “What goes around, comes around.”

OUR MISSION

BNI is the largest and most successful business networking organisations in Australia today. We offer our members the opportunity to share ideas, contacts, and most importantly, business referrals!

Our Core Values

BNI is built on a set of guiding principles which form the foundation on which members interact, conduct themselves and fulfill their goals. At BNI, we’re Changing the Way the World does Business®.

01
Givers Gain®

Givers Gain is the underlying philosophy of BNI. We exemplify that by giving business to others, you will get business in return.

02
Lifelong Learning

We believe in the continuous improvement of professional skills. BNI provides a variety of professional opportunities to support lifelong learning.

03
Traditions + Innovation

Tradition in an organisation tells us where we come from and lays the foundation of who we are, and yet we are always looking for ways to innovate.

04
Positive Attitude

BNI provides an environment that enables you to surround yourself with people who want to help you succeed, and who are doing so while remaining positive at all times.

05
Building Relationships

Networking is more about farming connections with new contacts than hunting for them. People want to do business with people they know and trust. It’s about cultivating those relationships.

06
Accountability

Successful organisations require commitment and accountability. This key value is the foundation of the impressive return on investment enjoyed by BNI Members.

07
Recognition

Recognition is built into the BNI system so that those that create success for themselves and others are rewarded not just financially but also recognised by their peers at BNI events.
