Arrival & Open Networking
When you’re in BNI, the most important meal of the day is definitely breakfast! Our meetings start with some very informal open networking and a delicious buffet style breakfast laid on by Green Park. Once you’ve signed in, one of our visitor hosts will introduce you to some of our members and help you get settled. We’re a friendly bunch who love to see a new face, so you’ll quickly forget any nerves and get lost in the buzz of networking.
Education And Information
Once you’ve enjoyed your breakfast you will be invited through to the main meeting room, where you will be seated with members of the chapter. The leadership team will take you through the format of the meeting and introduce the weekly education slot. This slot is delivered by a different member every week, and is spent helping fellow members understand a different element of BNI philosophy.
Members Weekly Presentation
Now it’s time for the weekly presentations. Every member will get the change to address the room and talk about their business. Many will also ask to be introduced to a specific person or company that they want to work with. You will notice everyone noting these down on their ‘referrals to look for’ sheets, which help members know who to look for. After the members have spoken, it’s your turn!
