BNI Silk toasts ‘record’ year

Macclesfield Express - - MACCLESFIELD PEOPLE -

A BUSI­NESS net­work­ing group is cel­e­brat­ing af­ter re­port­ing record lev­els of busi­ness re­fer­rals.

The BNI Silk group, which meets ev­ery Thurs­day morn­ing at The Tyther­ing­ton Club, has passed £88,000 in busi­ness re­fer­rals be­tween group mem­bers since Jan­uary this year and says this is ev­i­dence of ‘the en­ter­pris­ing na­ture of lo­cal Small Medium En­ter­prises and an im­prov­ing eco­nomic pic­ture’.

At each meet­ing mem­bers and visi­tors share in­for­ma­tion about their own busi­nesses and talk about new busi­ness op­por­tu­ni­ties they are look­ing to de­velop.

Or­gan­is­ers held a visi­tors’ day last week at the club.

Speak­ing about the day, Andy Beaden, di­rec­tor of the Silk Group, said: “BNI has trans­formed my busi­ness. We all work re­ally hard to share con­tacts and help each other grow our busi­nesses.

“The pur­pose of the ses­sion was to show peo­ple how it works and what goes on at our meet­ings.

“We are par­tic­u­larly look­ing for dec­o­ra­tors, plum­bers, graphic de­sign­ers and web de­sign­ers to join but ev­ery­one is welcome, as long as your pro­fes­sion or trade is not al­ready rep­re­sented in the group.

“I would urge busi­ness own­ers look­ing to ex­pand to pop along to one of our ses­sions.”
