We are a sustainable network of committed and dynamic professionals who are dedicated to the task of growing each other's businesses. Our members are some of Geelong's best business people representing a range of business categories.
Our common goal at BNI Geelong Network Connections Chapter is to help one another to grow our businesses.
We do this through a structured, positive, and professional "word-of-mouth" program that enables us to develop long-term, meaningful relationships with each other.
It's like having over 40 sales people working for each business, so there is no wonder that some participants have added as many as 50 new clients in less than 2 years!
In fact in the past 6 months, our group has passed referrals for a total business value of over $1.5 million.
Thanks to BNI in the past year (2011) Innovabiz have increased our business some 5 fold, with about 60% of the new business coming directly from referrals delivered by members of this chapter. Several of those referrals will provide ongoing business in the longer term.
In addition to that, I’ve built some rewarding partnerships and made some good friends along the way. Thank you BNI, the process really works!

Aspiron Real Estate
I have run two businesses and BNI has been an integral element of my success. I have launched a new business venture and I wouldn’t consider operating a business without the incorporation of BNI into my business planning. As a BNI member I have access to other business professionals that I can trust to assist me in growing my client base. I also benefit from the wealth of knowledge and business expertise my fellow BNI members bring to this chapter.

BNI means profit and it is the best form of marketing in terms of return vs dollars spent. BNI has linked me with a great group of professionals that help me to keep my business going and means I’m around people I know and trust.
