You don't have to worry about having to think of the next thing to say at BNI meetings: the whole meeting follows a planned agenda designed to result in the maximum benefit for all the group members.
Although there is a fixed format and a serious focus on generating business, there is also plenty of scope for members to enjoy themselves and have fun at the meetings as well.
They are an exhilarating start to the day's business for all of us!
The meeting takes place every THURSDAY morning. It starts at 7:00am sharp with 15 minutes of open networking, and the breakfast buffet is served. Some members arrive earlier than this to maximise on the networking opportunities.
