What our members say
BNI is the most successful business networking referral organisation in the world. What could BNI do for you and your business?
Business networking that really works!
We all know that word of mouth referrals are the best referrals by far and BNI gives me access to a group of local business owners all working together to help each other.
Joining BNI in 2006 was the single best business decision that I have made since starting out in business in 2002. Currently approximately 40% of our workflow is generated from BNI referrals. In addition having the support of the other members of the group is a great help for any business and the ability to form long term, sustainable relationships with complementary businesses is helping to ensure ASM is a stable business.
