BNI Education Slot Topics

I was the Education Coordinator of my BNI Chapter during the last term.

Here are some of the ideas I collated on possible BNI Education Slot Topics during a chapter meeting.

Please note: this is a personal recommendation and is not an official list or recommendations from BNI although you may find some of these recommendations in the official BNI sites.

Before using them, I recommend you discuss them with your Chapter Leadership Team and, if required, with the Chapter Director so that they align with the chapter goals.

To make my life as an Education Coordinator easier, I prepared a 26-week calendar, identified the topics, and had a chapter member identified for the topics.

However, depending on the chapter's goals, appropriate changes were made at the beginning of the month.

 Identifying a back-up presenter is also a good idea.

Hope you find this list useful. Please let me know your feedback.
