I have been involved with BNI since I started my own business 3 years ago. I cannot think of a better way for someone to grow a business – not only for the referral opportunities, but for the relationships that are forged with other business owners and decision makers.

I joined BNI in March 2019. It is the first formal networking organization I joined after visiting a couple of BNI chapters, a couple of Chamber of Commerce organizations and been to other networking events in the Montgomery County region. I chose BNI for their ‘serious’ approach in networking and growth. I also like the people in the chapter – they were all welcoming and very friendly. In my profession, Life & Health Insurance, I was told not to expect to get referrals and business for at least 6 months. However, I was able to return the investment within a few months. Not only that, but I also feel much more confident when networking so I continue to visit in other networking events. I recommend BNI to any person who like to develop and grow their business by referrals.

I am new to BNI and joined the group in Feb/14/2020. I should say I am impressed of how organized it is. I like the structure it has and everyone has to do power one. It is like a receipe of a food or better example instructions of how to put things together. If you follow the instructions that is asking you to do, which is “everyone in the chapter do “Power One” every week”, there is no way you don’t get the results. Also, I like that there is only one profession in each chapter. This is very unique that you don’t see it in other networking groups I have visited. I really like my chapter as well and if I didn’t see how friendly and professional everyone is in our chapter, probably wouldn’t join the group so quickly after visiting it two times only.
I have recommended this networking group to a lot of people and visitors I have brought to group and most of them are very interested. I would recommend BNI to more people and ask them to join.
