Our Vision 2014

Wed 29 January 2014

My name is Mike Holman and as the Executive Director of BNI South Pennines & BNI Lancashire it gives me great pleasure to introduce you to BNI.

Personally I have been involved for over 10 years and it's my privilege to support over 700 local businesses. In fact in the past 12 months our members have generated completed business of £18.75m. This new business has been created purely as a result of members actively recommending fellow members businesses, products and services.

Our mission is simple, and that is for our members to have ‘a great member experience’. We strive to achieve this by understanding their objectives, and purpose for being a member, and then working purposefully to ensure we meet and surpass those expectations. 

BNI is about local business people working together to help one another build greater success , it is based on the philosophy of ‘Givers Gain'. Our groups are filled with business people who understand that working in collaboration, rather than isolation, builds a better business.

This year we will continue to focus on our member's success as well as continuing to introduce BNI to new businesses. In 2014 we would like to see our members top £20m in closed business sales whilst continuing to learn how to build their businesses through word of mouth marketing.

BNI is the largest and most successful business referral organisation of its kind in the world. There are now over 155,000 members worldwide participating in meetings in over 50 countries. If you, or a business colleague or friend, are interested in generating more business locally, nationally or internationally, by recommendation in 2014, please just contact us and you would be more than welcome to attend a meeting as our guest.

We can be contacted on 0161 667 6607 or by email to
