What Our Members Have to Say

“I would not be where I am today without the community and support that is BNI.”
“I have been with BNI for three years. I unequivocally feel that I would not be where I am today without the community and support that is BNI. The referral work has been wonderful, and is growing deeper and more widespread, however equally important is the business support from my chapter members. The kindness and openness to make introductions to business networks, share journeys, and offer encouragement in running a business is amazing for a sole business person. BNI is full of wonderful people, some of whom I now call good friends.”

“BNI was a safe space for me to get into the business community”
“Having been part of BNI South Africa and then immigrating to New Zealand, BNI was a safe space for me to get into the business community in Tauranga. Unable to find employment initially, the chapter helped me not only start my own business but supported me tremendously to get and keep going and grow from strength to strength. BNI can mean make or break to a business.”

Since then, a network of chapters has been established across New Zealand from Kerikeri to Invercargill.

People do business with those they know, like and trust. BNI’s proven referral system helps you build strong and trusting relationships in a mutually beneficial way, by harnessing the power of positivity, giving and learning.
