BNI Spirit of Business BNI

About BNI

BNI is a 20 year old business and professional organisation that allows only one person from each trade or profession to join a chapter. With over 3800 active chapters, and 76,000 members, it is the most successful business referral organisation in the world.

Belonging to BNI is like having dozens of sales people working for you because all the other members carry copies of your card with them. When they meet someone new that could use your products or services they hand out your card and personally recommend your services.

It's as simple as that! Last year members of BNI passed 3,300,000 referrals, which generated more than 1.2 billion worth of business. To find out more about BNI please visit the main website at
