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?

Thanks to the BNI my confidence in public speaking has grown a great amount. Being a part of this networking business is one of the best things I have done since setting up my own business. They provide excellent training opportunities as well as a group of like minded business people all helping each other. It is just simply SPECTACULAR.

Stephanie Heed - Wedding & Events Planner

The BNI has provided me with valuable networking skills as well as trusted business contacts and friends. I have seen my levels of business increase as a result of my BNI membership and I look forward to continuing my BNI membership for a long time.

Stuart Alexander - Resolute Financial Advisers

I have found the BNI very useful not just for getting referrals but for finding trusted businesses I can rely on to provide me with a very professional service. I have built up some good relationships within the BNI and I feel this key in business as I can't do everything but I can probably find someone within the BNI that can.

Jamie Paton - J. Paton Plumbing & Heating.

I joined the BNI in 2005 the same year I started my own company. It has been an invaluable asset to both my business and my personal development over the last 10 years. Over 60% of my current clients have been a direct result from the BNI and the power of referrals.
