What’s it like?

Furness BNI works – that’s why we have members who’ve been with us for 10 years or more.

Would you like up to 40 successful, professional business people to refer you to their contacts?

Develop your business skills and presentation skills

Meetings run on a formal agenda, but we have a lot of fun too!

If you’ve been disappointed with a lack of real business generated from other networking meetings, you’ll find BNI to be refreshingly different.

You can attend up to two meetings as a visitor without commitment.

You’ve come to the right place!

BNI is the most successful business networking referral organisation in the world. There are over 12,000 members in the UK and Ireland alone, passing nearly 647,000 referrals worth over £419 million every year! It is quite literally the best way to build a better business

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.

Each Chapter Meeting follows an Agenda that is proven to maximise the business opportunities for the Members. We work on the principle of ‘Givers Gain’ – if I find business for you, you will want to find business for me.

We allow only ONE Member per profession or trade, so if you visit us, like what you see and decide that BNI can help you find more business, once you submit an application and it is accepted you LOCK OUT YOUR COMPETITION!

Being active in BNI  is like having up to 40 sales people working for you, because your fellow  members will be carrying your cards and referring your business to people they meet, without you having to pay them any salaries or commission.

Our Chapter meets over breakfast at Barrow Golf Club, Rakesmoor Lane, Hawcoat, Barrow-In-Furness, Cumbria, LA14 4QB, on Friday mornings. You are welcome to visit us, free of charge, but please bring about 50 business cards – you will need them! You will have the opportunity to tell us about what you do and the kind of business you are looking for, and see for yourself how BNI works.

BNI has a simple philosophy – Givers Gain. If I give you business, you will want to give me business.
Most business people are not natural born networkers, but they dont need to spin their wheels trying to figure out how to generate a continuous flow of reliable, quality, referred business. BNI has spent nearly 20 years evolving its own world-beating system and its members can immediately tap into this structured and highly refined programme that yields significant results.
