Roger Gamble from BNI Seward County in Nebraska joins Dr. Misner to talk about creating power teams that fit your region. Seward County is very rural and the chapter had many members whose businesses related to farming, so the chapter created an agricultural (AG) power team in order to increase referrals to farmer clients.
The chapter started to hold “AG Focus Days” and inviting local farmers to attend. The farmers responded with interest and ended up doing business with chapter members–including some who are not part of the AG power team. The chapter is now considering having similar focus days for other power teams.
Has your chapter created power teams around local industries? Please share your experiences with bringing “consumers” to BNI meetings or events and your ideas for using power teams to bring in visitors and increase business in your chapter.
