Named after the current England cricket captain, BNI Cook is the eighth chapter in the city and already has 22 members, ranging from sole traders to larger businesses with seven figure turnovers.
The launch event, which took place on Wednesday January 22nd, saw 38 other companies visiting the group, to see the benefits of the structured networking and to make new business contacts.
BNI is a 29-year-old business and professional organisation that allows only one person from each trade or profession to join a chapter. Across the UK and Ireland its members in 52 chapters last year passed almost 700,000 referrals worth more than £330 million of business, making each seat worth an average of over £27,000 per year.
Kay McMahon, director consultant for BNI in Bristol, said: "It was a great event and we are looking forward to welcoming back many of these visitors, and some new ones, to our next big launch event on Wednesday February 5th."
