BNI Kingstown Bevan offers excellent training to members who are looking to not only improve networking skills but also to grow the business. After taking part in the mandatory Member Success Programme (MSP), we then recommend members attend training at least once a year.
Quite often we already know how to improve our business, but taking part in a refresher course can help to rejuvenate you. The training events also offer the opportunity to network with other BNI members from across the region. Our group training coordinator helps organise training events locally and across the Yorkshire region.
Upcoming training and events in 2020
Rich Hayes from Beverley Motor Works is our current Social Events Co-ordinator
Our social events coordinators have in the past arranged some excellent events for us: we were serenaded by Elvis at a Christmas Social in Hull (a surprise treat for all of us); we had a ghostly walk around Beverley town in the spring evening sunshine (followed by a curry); and in July, Martin of St James’ Place hosted a summer BBQ.
In addition the group organises monthly golf days throughout the summer to which non-members are also welcome.
It’s a well known fact that business groups that socialise together do more business together and we’ve certainly benefitted from this maxim.
JOIN US FOR A MEETING
As a new member, you can expect to be supported by seasoned members to help you settle in. You get to know each other and use the services of the group. We don’t necessarily expect you to bring lots of referrals until we know you do a good job. So within the first few months and weeks it is very much a getting to know you exercise.
