BNI is built on a set of guiding principles which form the foundation on which members interact, conduct themselves and fulfill their goals. At BNI, we’re Changing the Way the World does Business®.
Givers Gain is the underlying philosophy of BNI. We exemplify that by giving business to others; you will get business in return.
We believe in the continuous improvement of personal and professional skills. BNI provides a variety of opportunities to support lifelong learning.
Tradition in an organization tells us where we come from and lays the foundation of who we are, but we must always be looking for ways to innovate.
BNI provides an environment that enables you to surround yourself with people who want to help you succeed.
Networking is more about farming connections with new contacts than hunting for them. People want to do business with people they know and trust. It’s about cultivating those relationships.
If you want to have a powerful personal network, you must have accountability. Otherwise, it becomes a social group.
It’s important to recognize those who are contributing.
