Chairman and CEO of BNI (Business Network International), Graham Weihmiller emphasises on the need for connectivity among business leaders and service providers. In conversation with Avishek Banerjee, Weihmiller says that BNI is a unique value proposition for young entrepreneurs and start-ups.
As globalization continues, businesses everywhere – including franchised businesses – are increasingly looking beyond their own borders for growth. This is for good reason as technology and transportation make it more possible than ever to conduct business on a global scale thereby accessing opportunities that could never be achieved within a single market.
Driven by the passion to serve a greater good, BNI helps businesses around the world to create a culture of collaboration. Its underlying philosophy of Givers Gain – meaning that by giving business to others, you will receive business in return – is a key stimulus for the organization and a philosophy that all BNI business leaders exemplify in their daily lives.
