Visiting BNI Vision
We’re a friendly group of local business people and visitors are always welcome—you will be surprised at how much laughing and joking you will hear at such an early hour in the morning. But we are structured, positive, and supportive as well.
When attending a meeting for the first time we want it to be a valuable and productive experience, so we have put together this guide to give you an insight to our meeting.

Benefits of attending
With over 60 professional meeting regularly in BNI vision, there are plenty of possibilities to spread the name of your business, and remember, it is not just the people in the meeting you will be reaching but everyone they know too.

Our Friday morning meetings are lively, informative and full of energy. You are welcome to arrive from 6:30am to network with our members. The meeting starts formally at quarter to seven. After a short introduction, we hear short presentations from our members, after which you will be invited to give a short commercial presentation (30s) about your business.
Important to know
We accept only one person per profession into any chapter, so your business is the same of similar to an existing business in the chapter you may not be able to present your business or pass your cards round. We invite you to stay and enjoy the meeting. If you like the idea of being the sole business in your industry, we can refer you to another local BNI chapter who are in need of your profession.
