Are they the antidote for keeping close business relationships alive in the face of an ever increasingly impersonal business environment?
About 4 months ago I received a call from someone representing BNI, a business Referral group. She said that her group was looking for someone in my business they could refer business to. It sounded to good to be true but I was having a slow week and decided to visit the chapter meeting and check it out.
The meeting was the next day at 7 in the morning. About 10 minutes into the meeting I knew that I had stumbled on a great way to keep my business network growing. It was just what I have been looking for.
Here is a link to our chapter of BNI: https://m.facebook.com/prpbni/
Groups like this I feel are becoming essential for sales people to build their network of business contacts. In fact if you are reading this and are interested I want to invite you to be my guest and visit our meeting. It’s every week at 7am at the Rolling Hill Country Club. If the location isn’t convenient look up BNI on the web and visit a chapter meeting that is located near you. If you are in sales and want to expand your contacts, BNI should be an option you consider.
