Best Business Networking in Rugby…

There are lots of business networking groups around for small business owners. But networking is time consuming and you can’t go to all of them, or you’d have no time to get on with doing your work…! So which one do you join?

Some are great for socialising, others are good for making business contacts and friends, a few will introduce you to new clients, others help you with learning and self development.

Webb Ellis BNI is the best networking group in Rugby as you can get all of this.

What makes us different is that we have fun, socialise, make contacts and friends, learn new skills… but we also do business.


Is your business missing out on lucrative new business by not being part of BNI?

How our meetings work

You arrive to chat with everyone over coffee and breakfast (a chance to wake up properly!), then we have a business meeting, following objectives and an agenda, and we finish on time at 8.30am.

We set targets and measure the referrals we pass amongst us. £1 million plus of business has been passed around us to date. There is no pressure to contribute, we support new members so that they contribute as much as they can and increase their income through BNI.

Givers Gain

We measure referred business – our aim is for you and every member to get value in your return from the fees
invested in BNI.

We work as a sales and development team to help each other grow our businesses. And a good mix of businesses are represented, so that working partnerships can develop. Want to be in the best business referral team in Rugby?

What our Members Say

During my two and a half years in the Webb Ellis Chapter, I have had the pleasure of meeting many people who have provided me with numerous referrals which has helped my business grow, but it is the relationships that have grown with other members that has really been my success. I now have a group of members and ex-members who are providing me with good referrals on a consistent basis.

One referral partner stands out for me, not just for the business passed, but the friendship that has been created. Having met through BNI Webb Ellis, we passed nearly £100K worth of business between each other as our businesses are very complimentary. The business is still flowing both ways but now we get together and enjoy time flying, event organising, having a drink or two, playing golf, bowling and other fun activities.

I have found the BNI Webb Ellis group a brilliant way to connect with so many other Businesses in my area, some of which I didn’t even know existed!
It has been very beneficial to me and my business both financially and socially, as everyone has the same aim to connect and do great business together.
BNI also gives great support and learning opportunities to businesses, I have learned how to successfully promote myself and it has given me the confidence to stand up and talk about my business in a conference situation.

I worked with Oxygen Design for Fuzz Muzzle Beard products. My images were used through out all of Fuzz Muzzles advertising and promotions, on their Website, Facebook pages, Instagram and also in GQ magazine.

I can recommend BNI to any business wanting to grow and make valuable connections.

A local Rugby business manager from the SME Business team at Lloyds Bank visited the chapter last year.

From this one visit I have built relationships throughout the region not only with senior managers from the various business teams but also the Commercial Finance operation that operates nation wide.

From this one introduction I’m now receiving leads and referrals on a weekly basis through Lloyds offering many finance solutions that can involve the CPA and Lloyds working hand in hand.

When people are in pain because of an injury at work or through playing sport, what they fail to realise is that in most cases there is an underlying cause for their pain; which means that they start avoiding the activities they enjoy and may have to take leave from their job. Well, what we do is use a tried and tested and proven assessment procedure to establish the underlying cause of their pain.

This means that they can return to normal activities and sport, have to take less time away from their job and start to live the life they deserve. We treat, rehabilitate and prevent musculoskeletal pain and injuries. Nowhere else offers such a comprehensive injury rehabilitation and physical performance package.
