Welcome fellow networker!
So many networking groups, so much choice, it would be easy to ask "where do I start?" but the more important question is "where do i feel at home?" I've been involved in many networking groups each with a different intention but CBN is the only group I've attended consistently over the last twenty years. Why? Because I believe that life-long-learning is vital to personal success; CBN's speakers and discussions inform my decision making as a leader and help me have something insightful to ask someone when I first meet them, regardless of their industry. Also, when you need advice you want to get it from a source you can trust. CBN members provide answers to each other, and refer each other on a regular basis and we hold each other accountable for the quality of the advice and the outcomes.
Please visit us, details are below and if you have questions beforehand, please email or call 317 966 6920.
I hope to see you soon.

Circle Business Network has operated for more than 36 years. Founded as the antidote to some of the more hardcore networking groups that emerged in the 1980’s, CBN is based on relationships and the sharing of knowledge rather than on passing of leads and business cards.
Founded by Art Robinson and Maria Giannakos in 1982, the group was taken over by Andrew Lee nineteen years later. In addition to Art, key influencers include Rhoda Israelov (36 years membership), Michael Rian (25 years membership).
The philosophy and purpose behind CBN participation is, through assisting others, we find the key to personal and business success.
Circle Business Network (CBN) meets weekly with these goals in mind:
Help participants and CBN members improve their business careers by building lasting business relationships
Improve our personal network and our networking skills
Assist others in our community.
Thus the motto "What Goes Around, Comes Around!"
