Who Is BNI?

BNI is an international organization with over 25 years of experience that has resulted in a program of proven techniques with a successful track record. In 2009, BNI members passed 6.2 billion referrals world-wide that resulted in over $2.6 billion dollars (US) for our members! The international organization has 5300+ chapters in over 40 different countries.

The philosophy of this organization 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.”

Belonging to BNI is like having dozens of sales people working for you, because all of them carry several copies of your business cards around with them. When they meet someone who could use your products or services, they take out your card and recommend you. It’s as simple as that!
