International Networking Week 2020 (#INW2020) is being held worldwide February 3rd-7th.
Now in its 13th year, International Networking Week celebrates the power of networking and the impact that it has on our growth as business professionals. It is held to help raise the awareness of business networking which is still a fairly well-kept secret!
Celebrating International Networking Week
1. Next week in our chapter we want to celebrate the power of networking by hearing from you in your Weekly Presentation (60 seconds) the single most successful “thing” that has benefitted you or your business as a result of your networking. It would be good if it was BNI and business related but it doesn’t have to be.
2. It is a great opportunity to invite visitors to raise awareness of networking and to hear these great testimonials to the power of networking.
3. During International Networking Week we are asking all 270,000 BNI Members around the globe to help generate a million thank you’s by simply thanking 5 people who have given them referrals.
4. Use the hashtags #INW2020 and #BNIThankYou when posting on social media.
How can you invite a visitor to celebrate International Networking Week with us?
Keep it Simple! A conversation could be, “next week is International Networking Week and my business networking group is inviting people to come along and celebrate with us. Have you thought of doing more networking this year? Yes? Great, I’ll arrange an invite/registration for you.
International Networking Week is a great chance to share stories about how working with others to help each other is a great way to do business. Sharing those stories will inspire even more ideas on how to leverage the power of networking. You have the chance to invite and inspire visitors too!
