BNI® Founder and Chairman
In terms of skills and backgrounds, Executive Directors come from all walks of life.
Dr. Ivan Misner, BNI® Founder and Chairman, has seen people with many different strengths make for outstanding franchisee Executive Directors.
“I’ve seen analytical people run very successful regions because they surrounded themselves with very outgoing people; I’ve seen promoters and go-getters who are really good because they surround themselves with analytical people. Successful franchisees have confidence in their ability and know their style and they know how to form a winning team.”
… It’s just possible that it might be…

BNI is an excellent platform for learning about cutting edge networking skills, but also an outstanding opportunity to get an insight into other professions and industries. Personally, BNI helped me realise that in this world which is becoming more and more focused on the external and material satisfaction, we desperately need people who find pleasure and happiness in developing themselves in order to help others. People who truly know themselves quickly grow and share their expertise with others. They are genuinely the Givers! And Givers always gain.
Involvement in the BNI activities easily opens the door to seemingly unreachable contacts as well as accelerating number of quality business contacts one can meet in short time. Most businesspeople I meet via BNI activities I enjoy doing business with since we share similar values. BNI is an environment that does not allow grumbling, long sleep and stopping, it inspires and pushes me for constant self-development and teaches how to collaborate with others for the common success. For me, traditional marketing is boring, it costs way too much, and the result is not measurable therefore I chose BNI franchise as a tool to build my business and help other businesspeople to be more successful.
My experience with the BNI.
To join to BNI team was a great decision. Before that I liked to connect people, but with the BNI I have a system behind me. I’m living BNI every day. I really like BNI Givers Gain philosophy. I met a lot of extraordinary entrepreneurs from Serbia who are now members of BNI Serbia. BNI is providing you a lot of International contacts whom you could meet when you travel. My goal is to expand BNI in Serbia and to Change the way the Serbia Does Business.
My experience in BNI is amazing. Starting your day earlier than a usual routine is a great way to move away from your comfort zone and to gain confidence. Having more than 20 people in my Belgrade’s BNI Dunav group is an enormous asset to my business because I know that I can rely on each person at least to get a bit of advice within each type of industry that my groupmates represents or to get a valuable referral. I can say that 9 out of 10 referrals that I have received resulted in a business win, it says a lot about the strength of the group. Running a business which is a strategic branding agency could be a challenging one because of a lot of people aren’t familiar with the value this business can bring to their corporate or product brands. Thus said the opportunity to inform more than 20 people in leading positions within their companies about your business is very unique because it’s not a client-business relationship, it’s a more than that, it’s like firm acquaintanceship and trust between group members.
