BNI’s 12th annual International Networking Week® is fast approaching! Are you ready?
International Networking Week® is an initiative of BNI® and an opportunity for members to show appreciation for their valued customers and contacts with the gift of a larger network.
The focus of International Networking Week® is to bring together representatives of government, businesses and community leaders to network and listen to talks by key networking specialists from local communities across the world. Speakers will offer advice and information on how businesses can grow and succeed through good networking practices.
Invitations to attend are open to the wider business community, members of other networking organizations, students, press representatives and interested parties from all levels of government and business.
Ensure that your chapters are fully prepared to promote International Networking Week® throughout their communities by visiting the website. You’ll find new marketing assets such as print materials, an official press release, official imagery and social media assets. Use these regularly throughout the next month, in addition to the new and official hashtag: #INW19. We want to see who has the most passion for this initiative!
We’re also calling on all members to share stories of past International Networking Week® events that were a resounding success. Submissions will be reviewed and featured on our social media pages throughout the week! Take advantage of this opportunity to spotlight a chapter in your region.
Guidelines for how to promote and run an event have been developed, and are now available for use. Please review these, provide them to your teams and contact the marketing team if you have any additional questions.
Remember, this is our chance to provide a “A New World of Opportunity” to individuals who are interested in the business of referrals. For further updates, please follow BNI’s official Facebook page, as International Networking Week® will be featured regularly over the next month.
We also have a message from our Founder and Chief Visionary Officer, Dr. Ivan Misner. Please view below.
