BNI: Helping you to harness the power of networking.

BNI (Business Networking International) is one of the most successful networking organizations in the world. Our members are motivated individuals just like you—business owners, senior managers and sales professionals—working together to help each other build profitable relationships quickly and easily.

Our approach is founded upon the idea that “givers gain”: by giving business to others, you will get business in return.

When you develop meaningful, professional relationships with other (non-competing) business owners through BNI, you instantly increase the size of your sales force.

Our “givers gain” philosophy means that, when your fellow members meet someone who could use your products or services, they will pass that qualified lead on to you. And, because each chapter allows only one business per classification, you lock out your competitors from this lucrative pool of opportunity. (View list of open categories.)

The BNI Westboro advantage

BNI Westboro Ottawa is one of the largest, most successful BNI chapters in Canada, with approximately 70 active members. That’s 70 potential sales people for your business!

On average, our chapter exchanges thousands of referrals worth more than $1.4 million in revenue. That’s a per-member ROI of more than $20,000!

Meeting every Wednesday morning, and featuring close to full attendance every week, our members are engaged and committed, sharing both leads and laughs while enjoying a great breakfast. Our success hasn’t gone unnoticed: we’ve won the Eastern Ontario BNI Chapter of the Year multiple times. Our chapter also attracts a lot of visits from potential members, members of other chapters and other interested guests, providing additional business opportunities for our members.

But those weekly meetings offer more than just a chance to network and share leads. The executive team maintains a full schedule of speakers, coaching and education sessions to help members hone their business and marketing skills.

“I joined BNI because it was a great opportunity to grow my business while creating additional exposure for our company at very little cost.

"I especially like that only one member per business category can belong to our chapter. I also like the ‘power teams’ approach, where businesses that work in similar areas—such as business-to-business and home-related services—get together periodically to see how they can refer more business to each other. This makes networking even easier.

"BNI Westboro is not only large and well-established, it’s also a welcoming and friendly group. It’s a great opportunity to meet new people, educate them about your business and explore how they might be able to help you grow.”

“I was invited to my first BNI meeting in the fall of 2009. At that time, I wasn’t doing a lot of networking, in part because I didn’t really enjoy it but mainly because I never experienced much benefit from any of the other “traditional” networking events I’d attended in the past.

“All that changed when I joined BNI. If you don’t know how to network, they teach you. If you don’t know how to benefit from it, they show you how. If you want to see results, they track it.

“It’s focused, disciplined and structured, and it has helped me grow both personally and professionally. The contacts I’ve made have been invaluable.

“If you are committed to growing your business, committed to doing the hard work required to get to the next level, BNI Westboro can help you get there.”
