Joining BNI has allowed me to truly understand the importance of intentional and therefore successful business networking
Upland, CA (PRWEB) August 30, 2006
Ringo knew he was on to something great with BNI, an international referral networking organization that helps businesses and professionals cultivate success through word-of-mouth marketing. The new president of BNI's new Abundance Chapter in Hong Kong, Ringo had already received HK$3 million worth of business from referrals even before the chapter was officially launched.
The Abundance Chapter had recruited an initial core team of 15 members, but quickly grew to 30--and drew a packed room of 125 visitors to its formal launch meeting. BNI Hong Kong Directors Avryl Au, Stanley Kong and Stella Yung credit Ringo, along with chapter vice president Kevin and secretary Dominic, for being "very motivated" and dedicated pioneers in self-starting Hong Kong's first BNI chapter--especially since none had ever before visited or participated in a BNI meeting.
"Joining BNI has allowed me to truly understand the importance of intentional and therefore successful business networking," explains Yung. "We are excited to explore the unlimited networking potential within Hong Kong."
Planning quickly for a bright future, BNI Hong Kong already has core groups in place for two more chapters. The second chapter, "Brilliance," is scheduled to kick off this summer.
