Review for Business Council For Peace, Inc. (Bpeace), Southampton, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The rewards of volunteering my skills and sharing my knowledge are so much deeper than I could have ever imagined. From the first time I was introduced to Bpeace 10 years ago until today, this organization continues to amaze me with their business model, core values and elasticity in exploring non-traditional avenues to reach our goals of creating jobs.

Bpeace is a smart, lean organization that makes it so easy for Skillanthropists to have a big impact in a short window of time, while providing entrepreneurs with invaluable knowledge that will help them scale.

I love that I can choose opportunities based on my availability at that moment, and that I know exactly how much time is expected of me. Through Bpeace's thorough vetting process, I know that my time and knowledge will be valued and that the Fast Runners that I work with will flourish and succeed beyond our expectations.

I am energized every time I'm working in the Bpeace space. I've met so many wonderful people from around the world and have gained lifelong friendships.

Review for Business Council For Peace, Inc. (Bpeace), Southampton, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

It is extremely rewarding working with Bpeace. Since 2009 I have been involved on projects for Rwanda, Afghanistan, El Salvador, Guatemala and BpeaceHQ. These projects range from country expansion to interviewing entrepreneurs to virtually mentoring a Fast Runner on tourism in Afghanistan.

The Bpeace team is professional, sharp, lean and very organized. The strength of the organization is its membership, which is assuredly top-notch professionals who readily share their knowledge, skills and networks.

I am in constant awe at the impact that Bpeace has on everyone it touches. The Fast Runners and their families. The Members and their networks. The Host Companies and their employees.

The impact is simply amazing. The Bpeace model is truly a multiplier effect on all levels!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

The organization works well, however it would be helpful if they could learn from others an efficient, streamlined way to attract more donors, members and host companies.
