I have been fortunate to attend a number of meetings held by the BNI Quay Chapter, Llandudno, as a visitor. If you have never attended this early morning meeting of like minded business men and women, I strongly recommend you put this on your 'To Do List' for 2012! The forum gives you the opportunity to promote your business to other local business people who will then market your business at no extra cost! Networking and 'word of mouth' referrals are the best type of marketing by far. In return you get to hear about and meet the owners of local businesses which in turn offer you and your clients great service and competitive prices. There aren't very many win win situations out there in 2012, so grab this one while you can. Try one meeting; you have nothing to loose.
Having been a member of BNI for almost 9 years and 2 of them being at the Llandudno (Quay) Chapter I can honestly say that it is the best forum for the giving and receiving of referrals. Other networking is all well and good but the structure and focus of referrals within BNI is very productive and a great bunch of people to meet with on a Thurs morning!
I have been a member of BNI Quay Chapter for just over a year now.
It has been good for me personally as well as my business.
I thought I would hate the early mornings but the meeting are always fun as well as businesslike.
I have met lots of interesting people that i would not have done otherwise.
As a busy accountant and tax adviser I do not waste my time.
Why not come along one Thursday morning there will always be a warm welcome and you are bound to learn something,
BNI Quay Chapter is a group of proactive networkers. You can go along as a visitor to see if it's right for your business. If you enjoy and get referrals you have the option to join.
Meeting every Thursday 7am at the Quay Hotel & Spa, Deganwy, the meetings don't interfere with your business day!
I would highly recommend visiting BNI Quay Chapter if you want to grow your business.
