Education Slot

Pete Bruder talked to us about inviting visitors and the way that you invite them will often will often determine how receptive people are to visiting.

There are many ways in which you can encourage people to attend:

  • Arrange to have a meeting with someone after your BNI meeting
  • Ask them to come and see the speaker
  • Tell there there is someone that you would like them to meet who will be there
  • Let them know they can inform 30 business about theirs
  • Ask them to come along and support my business
  • Not everyone who visits will want to join but they will still be very welcome in the room
  • The app allows you to send a formal invitation and looks professional when it is received
