Weekly Networking Lunch in Vancouver Downtown

BNI Connections is a wise use of your lunchtime. This dynamic business networking lunch in Vancouver BC gives you the chance to promote your business and meet leading industry professionals. Check us out to find out how the power of organized word-of-mouth referral marketing could bring you more clients and grow your business.

Membership includes exclusive representation of your category, training, mentoring, public speaking opportunities, and a growing team of enthusiastic people to find new clients for you. Meeting every Thursday at the Edge Social Grille in downtown Vancouver, you’ll make new friends, do something fun & positive for your business, and learn essential networking skills.

What to expect from your first meeting…

We know that attending your first BNI meeting can be scary! Don’t worry though as the meetings are very structured and our visitor hosts will be on hand to help you.

Arriving at the meeting

You should aim to arrive before 11:45 am – you’ll be asked to sign in and pay $25 for lunch. 

Our friendly visitor hosts will greet you with tea, coffee, or juice and start to introduce you to the other members and visitors for open networking before breakfast is served. This is a great opportunity for you to work out who you’d like to do business with.

The meeting begins

Choose an item from the menu. The director will introduce the leadership team before moving on to the education slot, followed by the 60-second round.

60-Second Presentation

This is your opportunity to introduce yourself to the chapter and to tell us what you do.
More importantly, tell us what type of referral you would like. Use this checklist:

  1. Your name and the name of your business
  2. What you do
  3. Who you would like an introduction to
  4. What you would like to do for that person

During the 60-second presentations, you will be asked to pass around your business cards - make sure you bring loads as members tend to take two or three each.

Report and Ten Minute Presentation

Following the 60-second round are some reports from the leadership team before moving swiftly on to the 10-minute speaker.

Each week, one of the members makes a 10-minute presentation, when they can go into detail about their work and what sort of referrals they would like from fellow members.

Referrals and Feedback

This takes place during the contribution round, when members pass referrals and testimonials to each other. We don’t expect visitors to pass referrals (but you can if you want to), so instead we ask you to comment on the meeting when it’s your turn.

This could be on anything from the quality of the breakfast to our warm and friendly welcome, etc!


The meeting closes by 1:15 pm, but many members stay behind for more open networking.
