BNI has served our company greatly for expanding our growth in the corporate video world.

McElroy Films is proud to join the rank of the Business Network International, or BNI. A group that offers a supportive environment for small businesses all over the state of Massachusetts with various chapter locations. Meetings are run weekly in small, intimate groups representing all industries and services, but, despite the group's size McElroy Films has found a supportive and influential environment that is mutually beneficial, promoting local businesses while building professional, long-lasting relationships.

This leading networking group requires commitment and membership participation in order to get the best out of BNI and in return help other businesses grow and establish new connections. In order to help one’s business to expand and benefit from BNI, the networking group offers weekly 90-minute meetings in which members or a member’s substitute, is required to attend each week.

“People do business with who they know and trust and the best way to do this is to relate to them on a weekly basis,” stated Mike Mahoney, one of the Back Bay BNI chapter leaders. “When a member has an issue or a client needs something, members can immediately pick up the phone and solve that issue or get them connected to the people that can find the best business solution in a 5-10 minutes.” Douglas Kiernan, another member of Back Bay BNI shared, “It is a unique experience to have twenty five to thirty professionals all sit around a table and pass business back and forth to one another. There is a full range of networking possibilities. With one member per profession in each group’s chapter, members gain exposure to a multitude of other companies, which allows members to gain potential work and referral opportunities.” These strong, quality referrals have brought in over a quarter of a million dollars in businesses to one another during the past quarter.

During these meetings, members are able to work on ways to effectively talk about their businesses, which assists when networking both within and outside of BNI through perfecting their presentation skills. In addition to these indispensable benefits, BNI also offers extensive training and networking programs. These training and networking programs include: member success programs, advanced education series, leadership team training as well as participation in business trade shows and local conferences.

This word of mouth marketing group requires a high level of commitment and responsibility. Ben McElroy, President and Executive Producer of McElroy Films shared, “BNI has served our company greatly for expanding our growth in the corporate video world." The success of the chapters relies mainly on the members. They are a team and a team does well when they work cohesively together. To be a part of this loyal team, contact the Boston office phone: 978-443-6800. For a full list of numbers, visit BNI’s website at
