BNI is a business referral organisation with the primary purpose of assisting its members to find and exchange qualified business referrals.
BNI provides its members with a professional structure and an ongoing training which enables members to network in a deliberate manner for the sole purpose of generating more business.
Last year members of BNI in Australia generated business referrals that resulted in more than $360 million in new business. (In that same period BNI worldwide passed over 7 million referrals, this translates to over A$12 billion of business).
BNI provides a structured system of giving and receiving business. It does this by providing an environment in which personal relationships can be developed with dozens of other qualified business professionals. By establishing this 'formal' relationship with other people, each member has the opportunity to substantially increase his or her business.
