Business Network International (BNI) relaunched the second chapter, BNI Dynamic, as a ‘hall of fame’ chapter, in Colombo recently.
The event was graced by many veteran businessmen, eminent professionals and rising entrepreneurs with a vision for exponential growth.
With over 220,000 members in 8000 plus chapters worldwide, BNI is the world’s leading referral organisation. In 2017 alone, BNI member referrals generated US $ 13.6 billion in revenue for the member businesses.
The mission of BNI is to help members increase their business through a structured, positive and professional referral marketing programme that enables them to develop long-term, meaningful relationships with quality business professionals.
In Sri Lanka, BNI has seen a rapid growth in membership, a positive indication for the country itself, as the organisation itself encourages entrepreneurship and articulate business planning, which will strengthen the country’s economy and knowledge base. Many doors are opened to members, for collaboration and partnerships with fellow members of BNI globally where symbiotic relationships are formed for smart and successful business.
“The launch of the new chapter ‘BNI Dynamic’ will set the pace for the growth of many other chapters in Sri Lanka, which are yet to be formed and is already on a growth trajectory in placing Sri Lanka on the business world map,” said BNI Sri Lanka Launch Director and BNI Dynamics Director Consultant Ragulan Tharmakulasingham.
The event held at Hilton Residencies, Colombo was made even more colourful by the presence of many special invitees who shared very positive views and suggestions on their experiences with BNI and their own business journey.
BNI holds a vision of elevating over 1000 entrepreneurs in Sri Lanka, by including them into the BNI chapters and driving its growth vision for businesses of Sri Lanka and its economy.
