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

Rating: 5 stars  

My third Traveling Mentor trip with BPeace was really great. I spent one week with Lina, helping her with growth ideas for her industrial printing business. A little process work, a little cost accounting, and a LOT of customer experience improvements will help her make a leap towards business maturity and hopefully lots of growth! BPeace continues to be my non-profit soul mate.

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

Rating: 5 stars  

I had the great privilege of kicking off the 3rd Fast Runner cohort in El Salvador with a day-long workshop about business strategy, followed by 1-hour sessions with each of the 20 Fast Runners. It was a whirlwind of fascinating learning for me, given the vast diversity of industries represented. I was struck by how brave these entrepreneurs are - it's hard enough to be an entrepreneur with all the financial risks associated with such an endeavor, but to do so in a formerly conflict-ridden country is even more difficult.

The second week I got to spend 4 days doing a deep dive with one of the Guatemalan Fast Runners. Here I got to experience a much different reward in helping one woman delve into the challenges she faces with client satisfaction, employee engagement and growth.

I would highly recommend (and have already done so!) BPeace to friends and colleagues as a truly rewarding experience for everyone involved.
