Welcome to BNI Central London A group of well-connected business professionals who are committed to sharing those connections and generating business opportunities for each other
We meet every Thursday morning at Carluccio's, Garrick Street, London, WC2E 9BH
Our meetings are fun, friendly and we use a structured approach to ensure everybody gets the best opportunity to generate more business. We allow only one person per profession to join and this is an opportunity for you to explore whether this might be a powerful way to grow your business. (But no pressure). You are very welcome to visit.
How to get the most from the meeting:
Arrive between 6:30am and 6:45 for open networking
Bring plenty of business cards
Prepare a 60 second presentation - telling us who you are, what you do, what makes your company better than the rest and what sort of introductions you are looking for.
BNI is a 30 year old business and professional organisation that allows only one person from each trade or profession to join a chapter. With over 5,866 active chapters, and 139,971 members, it is the most successful business referral organisation in the world.
Belonging to BNI is like having dozens of sales people working for you because all the other members carry copies of your card with them. When they meet someone new that could use your products or services they hand out your card and personally recommend your services.
Being active in BNI is like having up to 40 sales people working for you, because your fellow members will be carrying your cards and referring your business to people they meet, without you having to pay them any salaries or commission. Successful businesses depend on ‘word-of-mouth’ marketing as the best form of promotion there is.
BNI provides a structured, supportive, business environment in which local business people can get together to network, learn valuable new marketing skills and develop the strong personal relationships that lead to trust and the consequent generation of significant business for each other.
