This morning, just like every other Wednesday morning, Rebecca Miller attended another BNI meeting.

BNI is a business and professional networking organisation whose purpose is to exchange qualified business referrals. It’s the most successful organisation of its type in the world today and with over 211,000 members in more than 7,800 chapters worldwide. Not only this, but they do also hold activities within the meeting. For example, who does the best speech can win an award so it makes it more enjoyable to be there.

Since we started attending BNI meetings, we have successfully gained new friends and generated more business. During this networking meeting, businesses are able to give a summary of what they do and the benefits for your business when we work with you. For example, we display figures such as: 95% of employers report that are satisfied with the service they receive from Stepping Stones after hiring an apprentice. 92% of apprentices say their career prospects have improved since completing an apprenticeship. BNI has really proven to me that we can all help each other out in so many ways so instead of being a competitor, we should be working together.
