The meetings are a structured format with time for open networking with the members and guests at the beginning of the meeting.
During the meeting, each member gives a 30 second referral request and introduction about their business.
As a visitor you will also be given the opportunity to speak and introduce yourself.
After the meeting, you’ll meet briefly with our Visitor Hosts. During this time, you’ll find out more about BNI and how to lock out your competition and how to join if you are interested.

BNI MEMBER SUCCESS STORIES
BNI meetings took me away from my “billable” work time, turns out it was the greatest thing I could have done, the relationships and friendships formed at Business By The Beach are crucial to the success and expansion of my business and it is the best ROI of any of our marketing tools.
When I visited a BNI meeting for the first time eight years ago, I did not know what to expect. That first experience very quickly demonstrated to me the benefits to my business of expanding my client base through the associations of my professional colleagues in the Chapter. Highly recommended.
I have been a happy BNI member for over 13 years and have received over $1mn revenue in referral income. BNI provides the framework and systems to allow me to build my business knowledge and cement trusted relationships faster than I could have achieved myself.
I recommend BNI to any new business as It’s the best way to create a sustained flow of qualified referrals and if you commit to the process and you’re a good operator then you’ll get the result you’re after. Our business has sustained over 10% growth each year whilst being a member of BBB.
Being a part of a such a strong weekly networking group is not only great for the growth of my business with the referrals I receive, but it’s wonderful being around like-minded businesses owners who understand the business journey and who can to offer support, friendship and ideas with each other to help each other succeed.
I've been a member for 3 years and BNI has been instrumental in our ability as a business to grow and scale. Effectively BNI has provided me 44 other sales people I train to sell for me not to mention the amazing business people who have now become friends.
I have been a member of Business By the Beach for 5 years. During that time I have been fortunate to meet an amazing team of people that I can rely upon to refer my clients to and, provide me with excellent referrals. I also value the knowledge base that is available to me as part of this dynamic and progressive group of business people.
