Open House for International Networking Week in Sydney CBD


BNI Sydney CBD & South celebrated International Networking Week with an Open House at each of their chapters.

Chapters used the Open House to showcase their chapters to the wider business community and of course invite lots of visitors.

All previous visitors are invited back to join in the celebrations where chapter members make sure they are ready to meet and greet the visitors.

The record event for the region was All About Business (who have been showcased on our blog before – link to article) who had a massive 66 visitors, taking the mornings total to 120 people attending the event.

Of the contributing factors to All About Business success is that they run each weekly meeting using the Trade Show approach which means all members are in attendance, members have a sales attitude and all are wearing their name badge. It’s the simple elements of BNI which add up and make all the different.

Due to the number of people, the meeting format was lecture system instead of the usual u shape with the members presenting their Sales Manager Minute from the front of the room.
