Welcome to the Hogarth Blog. Here you will find the latest news from our chapter and our members. Take the opportunity to share our news or comment on each post.
Hello! And welcome to the updated BNI Hogarth website. If you’ve landed on this blog post without having seen the rest of the site, here’s a little overview of who we are and what we do – but there’s plenty more information elsewhere on the site if you want to have a look around.
What is BNI Hogarth? We are the Chiswick-based chapter of the world’s most successful business networking organisation, BNI. But that doesn’t really tell you much… So, we are a group of 30 or so west London businesses who meet weekly to share business referrals and help each other to grow our businesses and make more money.
This definitely isn’t as dull and formal as it sounds – it needs to be more dynamic than that to get me out of bed for a breakfast meeting at 6:30AM. And it is (and I’m not just saying that because I chair the meetings)… Because our members are from diverse businesses – in fact, BNI policy means that there is only one business per category – we can share more than direct referrals, and support each other in many ways.
The best way to understand what we do, why Hogarth is so successful, and why we look forward to an early start on Thursday mornings, is to come along to one of our meetings. To get an invitation, just fill in this form here and see for yourself. If you don’t, one of your competitors might. And, as of this week, we’re passing around £1.5 million to each other every year!
Who am I, and why am I writing this? I am the current chapter President, which sounds grandiose but is far less impressive in real life. As far as I can tell, it means I get to chair the meetings and write the occasional blog post – I must have missed any other perks, and it will all be taken away from me at the end of my fixed term (of one year)! But for now, I want to welcome you to one of our meetings – drop me a line and get yourself an invitation.
Why should I come along to a meeting? Apart from being impressed with the amount of business we pass, you’ll get to meet a load of great business people, get local support (but with a global reach), and even have some fun. That doesn’t happen and most networking events. And we have great coffee and breakfast on offer…
