Why Choose Calgary Business Network and CIBN Connect?

This is a network like no other. If you are trying to compare apples to apples, this is a watermelon tree. There is a distinct feel to this group of people and a culture of self-development and personal growth that does not exist in other organizations. All of the focus is on YOU the entrepreneur. Here are just a few of the ways that this group exceeds expectations:

  • No volunteerism by our members.

  • Only a few general housekeeping rules that are fun and easy.

  • Time saving methods that save hundreds of hours annually.

  • Your individual results are tracked, not your group's numbers.

  • Networking Success Path helps our members master networking.

  • Additional social media, business & marketing training included.

CIBN Connect has support for all of our groups and our business owners. We believe that networking should be fun and productive. We have decades of experience in bringing people together for networking and our training methods add thousands of dollars a year to the bottom lines of our members.

If you are struggling to meet new clients, or make those trusted connections that lead to ongoing warmed up leads, then this is the network for you!

Our Network Is Unique

Networking plus knowledge equals success!

We do not assume that you are networking profitably. Most networkers in other organizations will only make a few thousand dollars a year. Why? There is generally no mentorship and no plan. We have both!



Networking is happening every week in your city. There are both online and in person events to attend in Calgary, AB. The meetings are both fun and productive!



Do you need to understand social media? Does your marketing need a winning strategy? Are you wanting to book appointments from LinkedIn? Would you like to hit the goals that you set? All of this and more comes with membership!



Everyone needs help with tools. What are you looking for? Do you need a CRM? A website? A professional video? Does your LinkedIn profile need help? Are you looking to get more appointments booked? Do you need to close more sales? CIBN Connect needs help for all of this and more.

Our Mission & Values

This is networking that is designed to change the world!

Our Mission

We help business owners, entrepreneurs and professionals to thrive in any and every economy.

Every city has their own ecosystem with their own culture. Calgary is an oil and gas city where large corporations have a big impact on the daily activities of small businesses. When oil is up, the economy is buzzing. When oil is down, networking is even more essential because layoffs of workers, will also mean downsizing of contracts with independent contractors and the cancelling of services from the small business sector.

This organization has helped business owners to thrive through the ups and downs of the oil and gas sector. We have helped entrepreneurs to excel through the challenges of 2020 and today we continue to offer the connections, the training, and the strategies that will see you through whatever ebbs and flows that the market will bring.

Our Vision

The Calgary Business Network is one network within the CIBN Connect global empire. We are a global movement designed to impact the world with a more modern form of networking that works better in today's environment.

Traditional networking was born out of the feudal system with the merchant guilds in Europe. The last invention enjoyed by networkers was the business card.

Today we have tools available to us as networkers that have never before been implemented on a communal level. CIBN Connect offers training, strategy and collaboration using a variety of tools such as LinkedIn, Zoom, Video Training, Apps, and our very own Chrome Extension.

We are to networking, what UBER has been to the world of taxis. This is modern networking with a purpose!

Our 7 Core Values

Having core values helps us as a business to plan for the future and add team players that are in alignment with our vision. In no specific order, here are the 7 Core Values of CIBN Connect:

Relationships - Strong relationships are the building blocks of productive and winning communities.

Loyalty - People who work together and stay together have not only learned to "like" each other, they also "know" and "trust" each other and this is how referrals happen.

Value - Our team loves to add value to our network, so our members get MORE. This is also a technique that works for our members.

Happy Capitalism - Any economic system can be abused, but a "Happy Capitalist" is one who creates win/win/win situations to the benefit of all who are involved.

Integrity - Our word is our bond.

Excellence of service - We love to underpromise and overdeliver.

Communication - Responsiveness to our members and keeping members updated is a high priority.
