There are numerous advantages of BNI Forest City over other networking options in London. Here are just a few:

  1. EXCLUSIVITY! Only one person from each professional specialty is allowed to join a chapter of BNI, eliminating the possibility of competition among our members. When you join a chapter, you are the sole representative of your field and can develop relationships with others in the chapter as their go-to person for your services. If you sell widgets for a living, you’ll be the exclusive widget sales representative in BNI Forest City.
  2. EXPAND YOUR SALES FORCE: Consider your BNI team to be an extension of your sales force, out there keeping their eyes open for business to pass along to you. When you join BNI Forest City, you’ve just expanded your sales force by a lot!
  3. GIVERS GAIN PHILOSOPHY: “Givers Gain” is one of the core values of BNI. That is, members gain by passing on quality leads to other members. Just like other members will be out looking for business for you, you need to be keeping your eyes and ears open for when your contact base is looking for something.
  4. QUALITY REFERRALS: Our members learn to build trust and collaborate with fellow members to generate quality business referrals. BNI understands that you’re more likely to refer someone that you know, like and trust.
  5. EXPANDED NETWORK: As a BNI member, you are encouraged to visit other BNI groups locally or around the world. You never know where you might run into someone who might need a service you provide and, likewise, where you could use a service a BNI member in another city offers.
  6. EDUCATION: Your BNI Membership gives you access to mentors, other business professionals and a whole host of courses through BNI’s proprietary learning center, BNI U, to help you build your skills and confidence. Plus, you have the power of a global support team to help you grow.
