Upland, CA (PRWEB) January 30, 2007
Kichijoji, Japan, located 14 miles outside of central Tokyo, recently added one more reason for being known as a trendy neighborhood: It became home to the first Japanese chapter of BNI, the world's largest business networking organization. The new J-One Chapter drew 103 visitors to its initial meeting this fall at the Kichijoji Tokyu Inn.
"BNI congratulates Asato Ohno and all the J-One Chapter core group and Leadership Team members for their hard work and success in launching BNI Japan!" said BNI Founder & Chairman Dr. Ivan Misner.
Co-National Director Martin Levison described the inaugural meeting as "high energy" and said that it "demonstrated the teamwork of the membership -- every one of the members was involved and their 60-second slots had obviously been prepared and rehearsed, and were delivered really well."
Misner noted that Japan makes the 34th country to have a BNI chapter. "We're elated to see businesspeople and professionals in Japan beginning to embrace referral networking through BNI, and we look forward to building many lifelong relationships there."
