Why do we have an education moment within every business networking meeting?

by Richard Foulkes

The WHY of Education

One of BNI’s core values is Life-Long Learning.

As part of this, my role as Education Coordinator is to take 3-5 minutes each week to educate the chapter in a positive entertaining way about key aspects of BNI and business.

The WHAT of Education

Each week I’ll receive an Education Moment from BNI that I can choose to use if I think it is appropriate for the chapter. I’ll take it and make it my own and present it in a positive way.

The education might be about BNI, business or life….

The Leaky Bucket Syndrome

A lot of the  Networking Education Moments might be about BNI because over time members forget what they know about BNI and can stop doing the things that made them and the group successful.

We need to keep topping up that bucket of knowledge.

Another of BNI’s core values is Innovation and as new things happen in BNI we need to let the chapter know about them.

How can you participate?

Listen to the moments with an open mind and try the activities or behaviours that are suggested. They might help you become even more successful.

Give me feedback if you feel I’m doing well or could do better. Suggest topics you would like to know about so I can feed that information back to BNI or prepare education moments myself to give you what you want and then we can share those with BNI to use with other chapters too!

I’m circulating a form where you can write down what you would like to hear about.

With your help and engagement, I hope to inform, educate and entertain you for 3-5 minutes every week.
