Networking is a well-established business practice across the world for a very good reason – it works. At least it does if it’s done properly. BNI have been the leading practitioner of business networking for over 20 years, with over 100,000 members worldwide; it is estimated over £1 billion of business is generated through BNI per year.
No wonder then that BNI Woking is one of the most successful business networking organisations in Surrey. Whether you are in a business, a trade or profession, if you are good at what you do and want to grow your business then you should consider joining the group.
BNI Woking meet every Tuesday at 06:30am at De Vere Venues Gorse Hill, just west of Woking (backing onto Woking Golf Club).
Through these meetings the group facilitates networking between businesses in towns such as Woking, Guildford, Byfleet, Chobham and Chertsey, and throughout Surrey.

In addition to BNI Woking members, these breakfast meetings involve visitors and guests from the local area as well as from other BNI groups around Surrey and throughout the UK This gives members opportunities to learn from, and put questions to, experts in other fields and get valuable advice, and possibly even more contacts (and prospects) further afield.
BNI Networking Meetings
Breakfast meetings are structured in order to make the most of everyone's valuable time, and so members can start their working day with a nice new referral or two:
|6.40am||Open networking and chat over tea and coffee.|
|7.00am||Breakfast is served from the buffet; Continental or Full English.|
|7.15am||1-minute presentations from each member and guest to briefly describe the service they provide, and what sort of referrals they are looking for.|
|7.50am||10-minute presentation; each week one member is given an opportunity to present a more detailed overview of their business.|
|8.00am||Each member gets the chance to give out and receive qualified business referrals to/from other members and visitors.|
