We would like to invite you to a networking organisation which allows only one person from any business sector or profession.
A special visitors' day is planned for Thursday 19th January 2012 and it would be great if you could join us.
The meeting is taking place at Clerkenwell BNI:
The Old Sessions House
London EC1R ONA
Time: 6:45am until 8.30am
There is a £10 meeting fee which includes breakfast.
BNI is a business networking organisation whose main purpose is to exchange business referrals. It is the most successful organisation of its type in the world with over 5,000 chapters in operation across 33 countries.
Clerkenwell BNI passed over £230,000 worth of business last year between its members. We were the first Chapter to be formed in London fifteen years ago and still have several original members within our group.
We look forward to meeting you at 6:30am on Thursday 19th January 2012.
Please bring plenty of business cards with you as we are expecting up to 50 people.
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!
