BNI’s International Networking Week began 14 years ago and grows larger every year by providing business leaders with an opportunity to celebrate the power of effective networking.
This year’s theme is “A World of Thanks.” Please prepare for BNI’s International Networking Week 2021 by watching this video by Dr. Ivan Misner, Founder & Chief Visionary Officer of BNI.
“This BNI initiative began 14 years ago and continues to grow year after year. It provides business leaders a chance to celebrate networking by providing gratitude and appreciation for those people who are in their network,” says BNI Founder & Chief Visionary Officer Dr. Ivan Misner.
“2020 was a tough year for most of us, but it was also a year that showed just how important our network is to each other.”
With 275,000 business members worldwide across over 70 countries, this yearly BNI initiative gives business leaders around the world a time to focus on the universal power of gratitude. “Gratitude makes people feel good which improves connection and enhances trust. This, then, actually improves performance,” says Dr Ivan Misner.
