A Galway business group Tribes is celebrating five years of successful networking in the city.
The Tribes Chapter of Business Networking International, which comprises local professionals from a variety of backgrounds, says it has passed more than €2 million worth of business among its members since its formation in 2009.
The Tribes Chapter meets every Thursday morning in The Ardilaun hotel, helping each other develop and promote their businesses.
BNI is a professional business organisation established 29 years ago globally. BNI members benefit from its unique referral system which is similar to having dozens of sales people working as part of a team, whose role is to refer contacts and business within their group.
Speaking of the group’s achievement, Chapter director, Daniela Guder of The Art of Blooming in Moycullen, says being a member of the Tribes Chapter makes you realise the value of word-of-mouth networking.
“All of us have grown in this chapter together and we all take delight in each other’s success which is what BNI is all about. It is fantastic to come here to network and meet with people who have become great friends and celebrate in each other’s achievements.”
