Breakfast networking meetings - Do they work?
Some time ago I joined BNI and left within 4 months of joining. The key reasons I left are rigid structure of meetings, I just felt the group was not right for me and I had to attend or find a replacement or else I would be out.
I have come across 4networking where the structure is less formal also not American which I like. It just looks like it is for normal everyday people. However, we can convey any message on a website.
I hear BNI has been good for accountants for getting clients over a period of time.
I would be grateful for response on:
- breakfast networking meetings - do they work for signing on clients?
- Views on 4networking - it is not as established as BNI. What has your experience been like?
- Anything else I should consider?
