BNI is the networking opportunity you need to grow your business in Peckham. When you join BNI, you will be meeting regularly with fellow business-owners in Peckham to discuss your challenges and successes. From here you will receive leads and referrals for your business from likeminded people to help you grow at a sustainable rate. Referrals are so essential that 98% of businesses say that they rely on it for the majority of their revenue, but only 3% have a strategy to generate it. At BNI, we’re here to grow that 3% by helping connect Peckham business owners with the customers they need to take their next step. What’s more, you will be unique in your chapter, meaning you won’t have to compete for attention or referrals with similar businesses. Whether you’re running an independent store on Bellenden Road, or you’re a tradesman serving the suburban roads around Peckham Rye Park, we’re here to help. Every connection you make with BNI will represent a real opportunity for you to increase your client base and your cashflow.
We are an international networking group that gathers likeminded business owners to help them build their own personal networks and grow their business. When you join BNI you will be joining a local chapter filled with business owners in Peckham just like you. Meetings are held on the same morning every week to help you build a network with them and advertise your services. As you grow this network you will be able to connect with your fellow members, request their services, and offer your own. This will enable everyone to benefit and ensure that revenue continues circulating in Peckham’s economy. Referrals from fellow BNI members mean that you will receive real and useful leads for your services from other reputable business owners that you can trust.

“I started my company having come from a corporate sales background. On day 1, I set up in my dining room and started to dial out to the data that I had acquired. I spent an entire week cold calling but to no avail, I was making between 100 and 150 dials a day and was getting rejection after rejection in return.
To say that I was downbeat and frustrated (and worried) is an understatement. I had left a well-paid job and a successful career and now no-one would talk to me!
I went to my parents’ house on the Saturday and within 1 hour my sister and my parents’ neighbour had recommended BNI to me (I had never heard of business networking before, I didn’t even realise it was a ‘thing’). I went home and searched for my nearest BNI networking group and invited myself to the meeting on the Thursday morning. It was a ‘visitors day’ so the room was packed with 80 other local businesses and it blew me away. People were genuinely interested in my business and after I had stood up and done my 60 seconds presentation (which I was so nervous about) the builder sat next to me passed me his card and said that he would like me to build him a website!
I couldn’t believe it, I’d spent an entire week cold calling with not one person happy to talk to me and I went to this networking meeting with other likeminded local businesses and within 2 hours I had made my first ever sale. That was nearly 10 years ago now and I have not picked up a phone to do a cold call since. Now more than 70% of our revenue comes from BNI, which is a wonderful return for the annual cost. We have grown from just me in the business to 37 of us now, plus I have a wonderful group of BNI friends, amazing suppliers, a great support network, and experts in just about every subject you could wish for.
My friends now come to me asking ‘do you know someone...’ And, do you know what, I always do!
If you’re serious about growing your business, then look at networking – and especially BNI – I cannot think of a better way to do business.”
