We understand that all business owners need consulting services to help to sustain and grow their businesses.
Held monthly, the roundtable sessions allow for business owners to meet in either a group or one-on-one setting with other business owners and our Technical Assistance Training Team (consultants and BBIF’s senior staff). The roundtable program is designed to deliver measurable results as the business owners’ management skills are enhanced, strengthened, and improved. Business owners are also supported in this training by a team of “BBIF Graduate Client” mentors.
Our team provides education, training and support in many areas, listed below are some areas:
