BNI Members have access to professional training sessions and a series of business growth publications.
Training sessions and workshops are free although there is a nominal venue charge of around £10-15 when food/refreshment is provided. These are held both at various locations across the region.
Each training session or workshop lasts between two and three hours. They are scheduled very regularly and are held mornings, evenings to suit each member’s preferred time.
Member Success Training
This workshop was completely revamped in June 2009 and existing members will benefit greatly from re-attending. All new members must attend this session with 60 days of joining.
Chapter Development Workshop
Members receive most of their referrals from people in the same power group as them. Chapters with 40 members receive twice as many referrals as chapters with 30 members. Come to this workshop to learn how growing your power group and your chapter goes hand in hand with growing your business.
Presentation Skills Workshop
Improve your presentation and personal communication skills to maximise the business you get from your chapter. We spend two hours helping you to get the most out of your sixty seconds. It will also help to get your message across every time you talk to anyone about your business.
Networking Skills Workshop
How much business do you generate from your networking skills? Could you improve your effectiveness when walking into a room full of members and visitors, or a room full of strangers? What are your goals for a networking session? A two hour workshop combining behavioural, communication and personal interaction skills to increase your profits.
Referral Skills Workshop
How to get your fellow members to bring you more serious business and a host of creative ways of bringing new business for your fellow chapter members.
