We are a group of professionals based in Vancouver that are in the process of launching a new BNI (Business Networking International) chapter. If you don't know what BNI is, or how it can benefit your business, don't hesitate to send us a message and ask.
Our meetings follow a loose structure currently:
- 6:45 am Open networking
- 7:00 am Meeting starts/ order food
- Introductions (take a minute or two to pitch your business)
- Contributions (any referrals, thanks for closed business, events coming up, etc.)
- Presentation by a group member (10-15 mins)
- Requests (ask the group for connections, referrals or information)
- 8:30 am Wrap up, open networking until 9:00 am
As our numbers grow we will eventually formalize to the structure that is standard for all BNI chapters. We are looking for like minded entrepreneurs to meet with us weekly to network, pass business and discuss the last week's events.
The caveat to this group is that only one professional from each specialist role can be represented (i.e. only 1 realtor, mortgage broker, florist, accountant, etc). Our current group consists of:
Life Insurance Agent
IT Security and Service
3D Printing/Conventional Printing
As of Oct 11, we will be moving our meeting location to Denny's on Broadway (1759 W Broadway, Vancouver). There is a large private room on site where we will be located. The only cost is the charge for whatever breakfast you decide to order. Free parking underground, just remember to write your license down at the front desk.
