BNI Kettering Members Comments
BNI is an important part of our marketing activity providing a steady stream of quality referrals. - Roger Taylor The Website Business
An important factor for a website designer is that there is competitive lockout. I am able to talk to the members without my competition listening to what i have to say. I can talk openly about what i do so that the members know how to talk to their customers about my business.
Within the first six months of S.C.Agency joining BNI, we had already achieved revenue in excess of ten times our original membership fee. - Angela O'Donnell S.C. Agency
Our agency was unsure at first how successful a graphic design company could be within a BNI chapter. Within six months we had achieved over ten times our original membership cost which was fantastically motivating. We have so far gained referral work into large manufacturing organisations locally, balanced with supporting start up businesses and SME's.
My business has continued to grow quickly, with a high percentage of business generated from BNI contacts - Linda Pentland All Figured Out
I joined BNI within a few weeks of setting up my business. Business gained from Chapter members paid my subscription back within 3 weeks. Since then my business has continued to grow quickly, with a high percentage of business generated from BNI contacts. But more than that, I have grown as a person - in confidence, presentation and business development skills, largely because of the support of the member of my Chapter. I highly recommend that any business person who is given the opportunity to join a BNI Chapter should just do it! Linda Pentland LP Bookkeeping Services
I've met some amazing contacts and clients who I would never have dreamt of meeting if it wasn't for BNI and its members. - Jordana Burwood Truffles Soft Furnishing
When I set my business up in 2008 I never thought about how lonely it would be as a one man band. I joined BNI almost immediately after setting up and not only has it help me grow my business, it has given me the support network I needed. In the last 2 years I have met some amazing contacts and clients who I would never have dreamt of meeting if it wasn't for BNI and its members. Many thanks to all of you.
I have just renewed for my 8th year in BNI - it is a major part of generating new business for me. - Nigel Ogden A and R Print Solutions
I have found that the members are focused and willing to help support me and my business and this has been both refreshing and rewarding. - Steven Keal-Frayne Perfect Promotional Products Limited
Having a forces background I liked the fact that the meetings were structured and that the BNI have an excellent code of conduct. I believe that you get out of life what you put in and with the BNIís philosophy of ĎGivers Gainí I was convinced this would be for me and to be honest I havenít looked back. I visited a number of chapters but as soon as I arrived I knew Kettering was the one for me. I was welcomed by all the members and felt part of the group within minutes. I have found that the members are focused and willing to help support me and my business and this has been both refreshing and rewarding. I look forward to our meetings, getting to know everyone better and what they do and the social evenings help us get to know each other on a more personal level. I believe that this will not only bring the chapter members closer together but will help grow all of our businesses as we move to a brighter and more positive future. Being a member of BNI has helped me to focus on where I want to see my business and forms an integral part of my future growth plans.
The support network that I found available to me from within the chapter was an added bonus - Darren Garley Garley Catering Services Ltd
When joining BNI my main objective was to increase the profile of my business and to drive customers to use its services, being a BNI member helped me achieve this and continues to do so. The added bonus for me was the support network that I found available to me from within the chapter. Setting up your own business can be very daunting and I found the support and experience of the other member invaluable.
