BNI Reading Abbey Chapter Celebrates Third Birthday
One of Reading's Most Popular BNI Chapters Is 3 Years Old This Week
Newly appointed chairman of the chapter, Brian Mitchison of Northwood Estate Agents, comments, "We are a growing chapter so to reach our 3rd anniversary in the fine form that we are in is very encouraging. I've been a member for around a year now and have seen the positive effects BNI has had on my business. My aim is to make this chapter the premier group for business networking in Reading."
The Abbey Chapter of BNI currently has 16 members who meet regularly plus weekly guests who are always welcome. The members of the chapter include an actor and a magician but are also represented by more traditional businesses like an accountant, a financial planner, a digital marketer and a human resources consultant. The beauty of BNI is that only one person from any profession can join a chapter so there is no conflict of interest.
New member, Chris Hines of Atlantis Web Marketing, has this to say about his membership, "I've only been a member for a few months but I've already grown my business from the referrals I've met through my Abbey Chapter membership. I really look forward to coming down to the Hilton each week for breakfast and catching up with the other members of the group. I particularly enjoy the training events put on by BNI which have made me a much more effective networker."
BNI is a global organisation which began in America and was founded by Dr Ivan Misner in California. Over the past 20 years it has grown into thousands of chapters around the world. In fact there are currently over 20 chapters in Berkshire alone. The principles are the same in each chapter that "If I give you business you will want to give me business" with every meeting following a prescribed agenda.
BNI Reading Abbey Chapter is hoping to grow the chapter to around 25 members in the next 12 months so by the time their next birthday comes around they will need some more chairs around their meeting table each week.
