Official BNI Chapter in Cambodia
This morning my wife and I got very early morning. We were excited about today because 16th July 2013 is the history of Cambodia that we launched our first official BNI Chapter – BNI CEO Chapter.
We, Founding Members, have been working for three months in order to achieve our goal to launch our first chapter. Because the rule of BNI global is we need to have at 25 business owners as members in order to launch a chapter.
I want to give you some background of BNI – what is BNI (Business Network International)
Needless to say, “Networking” is extremely considered as the key success for every business, especially during Global Financial Crisis. It does work for not only personal or individual benefits but also cooperation chance for job and business.
- Information, Knowledge and Experience Sharing around the region
- Increase in sales through quality referrals
- Business Cooperation Chances
BNI is the world’s largest business networking, referrals and word of mouth marketing organization. www.bni.com
The philosophy of this organization is built upon the idea of “Givers Gain®”: By giving business to others, you will get business in return. This is predicated on the age-old idea of “What goes around comes around.”
The mission of BNI is to help members increase their business through a structured, positive, and professional “word-of-mouth” program that enables them to develop long-term, meaningful relationships with quality business professionals.
Belonging to BNI is like having dozens of sales people working for you……because all of them carry several copies of your business cards around with them. When they meet someone who could use your products or services, they take out your card and recommend you.* It’s as simple as that! It’s simple because it’s based on a proven concept by BNI Founder, Dr. Ivan Misner, called “Givers Gain®.” If I give you business you’ll give me business and we’ll both benefit as a result.
BNI provides a structured and supportive system of giving and receiving business.
By providing an environment in which you develop personal relationships with dozens of other qualified business professionals and the opportunity to substantially increase your business.
WHY BUSINESS OWNERS LOVE BNI?
Last year alone, members of BNI passed 7.1 million referrals……which generated over $3.3 billion dollars (U.S.) worth of business for its members! BNI is a business and professional networking organization that allows only one person per professional classification or specialty to join a chapter.
Would you like to increase your business by 20%, 30%, 50% or as much as 100%?
You can see results like this! Many have. Some participants have added as many as 50 new clients in the first 2 years!!! Successful businesses depend on word-of-mouth. Word-of-mouth advertising is the best advertising there is.
The Results of BNI CEO Launching
We first expected to have 80 business owners in the room and one day before the program we got confirmed that there would be 160 business owners in the room. BUT amazingly we had 205 Business Owners joined the program. I call this a problem – good problem!
We had international and national news agents such TV reports and journalist joined took key points for featuring on their news covering.
Our delegates/visitors were surprised by the fact that our members within the chapter passed referrals/businesses to each other worth from hundreds to thousands of dollars.
During the program PM Leadership provided 10 gifts for lucky draw for our delegates. They are VIP Tickets to the Millionaire Mind Intensive (MMI) and Complementary tickets to the National Achievers Congress 2014!
I thank to our partner Success Resources for offering the tickets for us to give as lucky draw. This is a great learning opportunity for our delegates to experience world-class programs. And this allowing us to work toward our mission “To Help Everyone To Be A Better Leader”
Rich Dad said “The Rich Build Network. Someone Else Looks for Work” I personally believe that BNI is one form of network for the rich or at least for these who have the potentials to become RICH! And I am one of them!
If you have a business owner I strongly encourage you to visit our CEO Chapter and check if you can be a member. During the exclusive session with Rich Dad Asia, Mr. Bellum Tan, he was asked by our delegates “How to be successful business owner by definition of Robert Kiyosaki?” Robert Kiyosaki would call you a self-employed if you are running a business and you can not go away from it for six months. Mr. Bellum Tan ‘s reply was “Joining BNI”
