Learning about networking

On Tuesday morning I attended a meeting at the local chapter of BNI , a global organization which offers members the opportunity to share ideas, contacts and most importantly, business referrals. I met really awesome people, lots of business referrals were shared and I need to think about whether I will join.

There are huge advantages for joining. The biggest being, the networking is very structured and people actually bring lots of business referrals to the table. Ja, I was impressed and the only reason I hesitate is that weekly meetings are mandatory and I don't know if I'm in a position to commit to that. Many thanks to Adri  and Gaynor for inviting me and Tamara for telling me about it waay back when we first met in person.

Nice article for new comers in networking. Like to read evaluation article.

I didn't join for that reason - I couldn't commit to the weekly meetings. Especially seeing they were at 7am. I'm not human then.

I think it's a great organisation, but I think it also depends on your business model whether it's something that will work for you.
