Welcome to The BNI sandbach Chapter
BNI is a business and professional referral organisation and each Chapter allows only one representative from each category to join, which means that you lock out your competitors. We have a structured and supportive business environment in which local businesses can get together to network, learn valuable new marketing skills and develop the strong personal relationships that lead to trust and the consequent generation of significant business for each other. BNI is based on the philosophy of Givers Gain.
The Sandbach Chapter meet every Wednesday morning for breakfast at the Sandbach Rugby Club from 7am. We learn about each others businesses and look for opportunities to refer new business. In the last 12 months we’ve generated 592 business referrals resulting in £443,547.00 worth of business for each other. We are a mix of both new and established businesses.
The sole purpose of every BNI Chapter is to generate more business for its members. A successful business depends on word-of-mouth marketing, and BNI provides this.
Visitors - What Can You Expect ?
Before the meeting
If you would like to attend one of our meetings, we will need to have a quick chat to ensure that your business doesn’t conflict with a member already in our groups and answer any questions you might have.
On Wednesday morning
You will need to bring several business cards to distribute to our members and bring a £10 event fee. You will receive a warm welcome from Victoria Bennett who will be on the welcome desk to greet you. She will introduce you to one of our members who will show you where to sit and most importantly, where the coffee is! There are coffee, tea and cold drinks available and a choice of a full english breakfast and toast (the breakfast alone is worth the fee, so the networking is effectively free)!
The meeting starts at 7.00am and finishes at 9.00am. During the meeting each member will deliver a 60 second presentation about their respective businesses and visitors are also offered the opportunity to partake. We also pass referrals to each other with details of potential business opportunities.
One of our members will do an extended 10 minute feature presentation They are always entertaining!!
Remember, you will be under absolutely no obligation to become a member, but after experiencing it for yourself, you might just want to join us!
