Welcome to BNI New Zealand
We know networking is the lifeline of New Zealand small businesses. It helps us grow and become successful. BNI can help you here. We are the country’s largest business networking organisation. Our 120 groups around the country have collectively 2,600 members who are ambitious businesspeople much like yourself - working together in a structured way by giving and receiving referrals.
Referral marketing works. From January 2014-2015 BNI groups across the country generated over $69 million in business. We expect that figure to rise this year.
