BNI Elite - Referral Networking Group
Fri 12 May 2017, 06:45 – 09:00 BST
BNI Elite is a professional networking group for ambitious individuals and companies who want to build worthwhile and profitable relationships in Sutton Coldfield and North Birmingham.
The Elite Group meet every Friday at 06:45am at Ramada Sutton Coldfield.
Elite is one of the most successful membership based groups in the region. It's success has been built on welcoming visitors who get the opportunity to meet 25 plus individual businesses and share their own business’s benefits and goals with the group. Visitors can attend twice in 6 months before deciding if they'd like to apply to join the group.
Every member and visitor if they wish, will have the opportunity during the meeting to speak for 60 secs about: WHO they are, WHAT they do, HOW they add value to their clients and WHO they would like to be referred to. They will also benefit by collecting 25 business cards as well as passing out their own business cards (bring at least 30 cards) to the group.
BNI is not just the most successful networking organisation in Birmingham and Coventry – it’s the most successful organisation of its kind in the world! Our BNI groups meet every week, so we’re confident we have at least one major new business referral waiting for you right now. So what are you waiting for?
Registration for the event is free however there is a charge of £10 payable on the day to cover the cost of breakfast and venue hire.
How can I contact the organiser with any questions?
Please email Penny Higgs on firstname.lastname@example.org or phone me on 07540899907 with any queries.
What do I need to know before attending a BNI Meeting?
I will email you before the event with all of the information you need regarding times of arrival, what to expect from the meeting and also anything that you need to bring with you or prepare beforehand.
Is there a meeting fee payable on the day?
Yes, all of our chapters charge a small fee which varies depending on the venue. This fee is between £10 and £20 and covers venue hire and breakfast/lunch depending on the time of the meeting.
How do I apply to join BNI?
We recommend that you visit a couple of different chapters to find one that you feel is the "best fit" for you. You will be asked after a couple of visits whether you wish to apply to join but there is no hard sell.
I don't want to join but can I still come along to visit and network?
Yes, we welcome visitors as long as their is no cross over in trade/profession with an existing member. There is no hard sell to join, we love having new people in the room! However you will only be able to visit a couple of times as we are a membership organisation.
