Early bird catches the worm” is the theme for the €2m cork city BNI chapter open network event taking place to celebrate international networking week on 11th February 6.30am at the Ambassador hotel Cork.
Join us for breakfast is the message from the people behind businesses in Cork that used the power of networking to achieve over €2 million in sales last year while making lifetime friends along the way.
This event has been organised to showcase the success of networking and focuses on Power teams.
Power teams, created by BNI, provide increased business for companies who work in the same area while still working within the structured, supportive business environment that is the Cork city BNI chapter. For example the Wedding power team includes a Photographer, Flower shop, Travel agent, a Venue specialist and a Wine wholesaler. By working together to build up contacts, clients and trust within your industry, power teams also add value to customers as testimonials, regulary read out at meetings, keeping the standard of service extremely high.
What’s unique about BNI is that only one person from each industry is accepted which provides a perfect opportunity where the focus is on providing your fellow members with quality referrals.
“Come along and see for yourself how successful networking can benefit you, while meeting up with fellow Cork business people” says Paul Allen, Owner of Automotif and current Director of BNI’s Cork city Chapter which has 37 members.
Invitation for the event is open to all employers, employees, press and the curious.
