What’s a Power Team?

So…. What’s a Power Team?

A Power Team is a group of related professions that work with the same clients but do not take business away from each other.

In a successful BNI Chapter you will find 6 or more Power Teams with at least 7 members per team – making a total chapter size of over 42 members. In this environment, members will find 67% of their referrals come from their own Power Team and the other 33% of their referrals come from the rest of the chapter. You could find yourself in more than one Power Team – but the most important thing is to surround yourself with members who talk regularly to the type of clients that YOU want!

Are you missing out on 67% of the business you should be getting?

Please note that this is not a definitive list of professions within BNI, but merely a guide to how power teams may be organised within a chapter.
