Ribble Valley-based BNI Brunch Chapter is on track to achieve over £2m in business referrals in its first year. The new chapter, which launched at the end of February, achieved a record amount of business passed last week, with members receiving over £46,600 of referrals.
Daniel Fisher, managing director of Preston-based web design and app development agency, Tienda Digital, was named ‘Notable Networker’ of the week, bringing over £14,000 of business to the chapter.
Based at Tiggis on the A59, the Friday meetings are timed to appeal to business people unable to make traditional early breakfast networking sessions. Starting at 9.30am, the rapidly growing group comprises a wide range of industries. Sectors represented include IT, marketing, energy, trades and legal and financial services.
BNI Brunch Chapter President, Mark Fallon, said: “We’re immensely proud of the success of the chapter to date. It’s flourishing thanks to the positive energy the members bring each week. The BNI philosophy of givers gain is working for our members who are committed to seeking out business opportunities for everyone around the table.”
