What’s a Power Team?

A Power Team is a group of related professions that work with the same clients but do not take business away from each other.

In a successful BNI Chapter you will find 6 or more Power Teams with at least 7 members per team – making a total chapter size of over 42 members. In this environment, members will find 67% of their referrals come from their own Power Team and the other 33% of their referrals come from the rest of the chapter. You could find yourself in more than one Power Team – but the most important thing is to surround yourself with members who talk regularly to the type of clients that YOU want!

Are you missing out on 67% of the business you should be getting?

What’s the Power Team Drive?

Increasing the size of your Power Team will increase the amount of business that you do in BNI, but if that isn’t motivation enough, the Power Team Drive is an added incentive for members to grow their own Power Teams. If a chapter can add 6 new members across their membership between 29th March and 28th May, they will win a prize of £1,000. This can be five members into one power team and one into another, or one new member into each of the 6 Power Teams or any combination thereof.
