International Networking Week Celebrates 10th Year with a new theme
The Simple Formula for Follow-Up
February 6 - 10, 2017

In honor of the 10th International Networking Week™ (INW) and it’s 2017 theme The Simple Formula for Follow-Up, BNI is offering tips, tools and talks to surrounding businesses, organizations and schools. Most business professionals know the value of networking in growing one’s business, and partake in at least some aspect of networking on a regular basis. However, there are still few, if any, classes or workshops on HOW to network and ensure good results. That’s why BNI Northwest is reaching out during INW to share valuable information on an often-overlooked part of networking:
The Follow-Up
.

BNI Founder and Chief Visionary Officer Dr. Ivan Misner says, "I think one of the most important things I've learned in the 32 years since I founded BNI is that it’s not what you know or who you know, it’s how well you know them, that really counts." Networking is not just meeting people, it’s about having a system in place to help connect with contacts after an event is over.

Check out what else Dr. Misner says about Follow Up in this special video:


Throughout INW (February 6–10), BNI Northwest is offering a variety of options to share information on The Simple Formula of Follow-Up including:

  1. Daily Email Tips on Networking: Each email shares one tip and a related resource, such as a book or podcast, that offers more detailed information. To sign up for this FREE campaign, send an email asking to be included to info@InternationalNetworkingWeekSeattle.com. You'll receive one email each day during INW, but be assured we’ll guard your information carefully and won’t share your email address with others.
