Nicolas Decourt - Babblecom Ltd
Since creating our Baby Babble website package, BNI has helped us developing
a niche market for small businesses and startups wanting to get started
When I joined BNI I was very sceptical about the potential results and
use of networking... My main aim was to get my money back and give it
a go! The first year, BNI helped me generate £18,000 and that's
only considering direct referrals.

BNI has opened up new doors for me. It's a massive contact base has
changed my client base completely. The referals I recieve in any one
week are on average equivalent to my yearly membership. Far
more successful than any other advertising. I
absolutely swear by it and would definately recommend it to anyone who
wants to seriously develop their business.
Cooney - Aaron and Partners LLP
When I first moved to Chester, I was told about BNI and asked if I would
like to go along with a view to improving my non-existent contact network
in the City. 3 years on and I'm confident that I can pick up the phone
and get hold of someone to help with almost anything that I need - and
I know that the person I get hold of will try to do a good job for me.
has considerably improved my confidence - I have no problem in standing
up and addressing a room full of people and this is very useful given
the nature of my work.
spite of all of that, I continue to be a member of BNI because it works
for me - I still gain a significant number of referrals and have made
some very useful contacts. Each year I gain many times more business
than the cost of the BNI membership and, if I need another reason, I
enjoy the meetings each week!

I joined BNI in Oct 2004. It took a few months to fully appreciate how
BNI really worked. This realisation came when I passed my first decent
referral to the HR Company in our Chapter. The effect of this was that
within two weeks they found a referral for me with a gross value over
three years of £180,000. You would think that that would be hard
to top. But BNI works in a variety of ways. recently we have formed
a partnership with another BNI member company and launched a new product
that is already a market leader in its field with projected sales ten
times this level. One of the other great benefits of BNI has been the
practice it gives you presenting you company. I can now in 60 seconds
tell people exactly what I need them to know about my business in any
