BNI and The Future

Following unprecedented times in 2020-2021, with no in-person meetings and travel restrictions, we all had to figure out how to move forward in this new normal.

Businesses from every industry no matter the size had to take a whole new approach on how to conduct business. Many had to shut down while others adapted and began working remotely using different platforms of teleconferencing. In 2020 alone, Zoom reported that there were more than 300 million individuals who were utilizing its platform daily.

While working remotely has been a challenge for some businesses, BNI has showed continued success with the use of platforms like Zoom and other evolving technologies. The continued communication between BNI team members, Franchise Owners, and chapter Members has been just as meaningful as if we were in-person.

Over the past few months BNI has built effective relationships through the help of online platforms. We have been able to conduct one to ones more frequently and efficiently. Not only are we able to communicate verbally but nonverbally as well.  Coordinating meetings with multiple individuals has been much more efficient and effective in many ways. BNI is even able to have group activities through the online platforms such as global and regional conventions, global employee meetings, and much more.

As we move forward and get better together through 2022, let’s not forget all that we have overcome. Here at BNI we wish you a very Happy New Year and all that is to come.
