BNI Business over breakfast
Business over Breakfast
By Richard Smith, Business Correspondent
A group in Rochester meets over breakfast every week to give each other new business.
Everyone in business knows the importance of finding new contacts for making deals.
Members of a networking group in the South East say they're world leaders at it.
BNI started in America, and has more than one thousand members here. The idea is simple: every day each member actively seeks out new work for their colleagues. But it's not for the fainthearted.
This is a world of business breakfasts at dawn, where members say they "refuse to participate in a recession".
