BNI-logoPhilosophy
The philosophy of BNI® is built upon the idea of “Givers Gain®”.
By giving business to others, you will get business in return. This is predicated on the age-old idea of “What goes around, comes around.”

Mission
The mission of BNI® is to help members increase their business through a structured, positive, and word-of-mouth. This enables us to develop long-term, meaningful relationships with quality business professionals.

Like having dozens of sales people working for you.
We carry several copies of your business cards around with us. When we meet someone who could use your products or services, we take out your card and recommend you. It’s as simple as that!

It’s simple because it’s based on a proven concept by BNI Founder, Dr. Ivan Misner, called “Givers Gain®.”

If I know, like and trust you, I’ll be inclined to refer business to you. If you know, like and trust me, you may refer business to me. We’ll both benefit as a result.
