of Greater Kansas City
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.
Our leadership teams and support team members are among the very best. We have experienced phenomenal growth due to their efforts.
Our members are local business people who are among the most successful in their chosen professions. Many have been recognized and received the top awards that their industries have to offer.
BNI has thousands of pages of support material to help any business person in the world who is willing to take the time to study the concepts and most important, practice the procedures we have developed.
Opportunity has been known to knock, but it doesn't turn the knob and walk through the door for anyone. That part is up to you.
The Law of Reciprocity
Spoken in many ways is one of the foundational elements of BNI.
What goes round comes around...
Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country...
Do unto others as you would have others do unto you...
The central, guiding philosophy of BNI has always been the concept of giving benefit to others. If you want referrals, do the best that you can by referring business to others.
Networking is more about farming than hunting. Building a business through referral networking is about cultivating relationships. You form long-lasting referral partnerships based on trust.
One of the most important traditions of BNI is our commitment to training and education. Training is how we learn how to avoid mistakes.
Training is how we pass along wisdom to our leaders and members so they don't have to learn the hard way.
Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime...
And in return he may teach others...
So why join BNI?
So you can help others, and in return you will be helped...
