We hosted the BNI UAE & Qatar National Conference 2021 earlier last month and we had over 300 members from the UAE, Qatar, and other parts of the world participate. The objective of this event is aligned with the Core Values of Building Relationships, Lifelong Learning, and Traditions & Innovation. We enabled cross-region networking amongst members and over 2 days, there were over 200 121 meetings that took place virtually. To take it to the next level, over 80 connection requests were made to explore business opportunities. Members invested an average of 5 hours in networking and life-long learning. All in all, we received great feedback from the participants and we look forward to hosting more such events to bring value to members.
The highlight of the event was BNI’s Core Value of Recognition. We really believe in recognition. In putting the spotlight on people who have done a great job in the organisation. We want to honor Members and Chapters who have distinguished themselves and the entire organisation bestows awards to top-performing BNI Members and Chapters each year.
I take this opportunity to congratulate all the members and chapters who were recognized and my special congratulations to Atul Sharma, currently President at BNI Warriors for being awarded Member of the Year and BNI Champions for being awarded Chapter of the Year.
