Evolving to stay on track with its mission and better serve its members, Business Owners Benefits Association (BOBA) has recently partnered with world-renowned Peak Technical Institute to offer education and professional development opportunities as one of its four key BOBA Service Areas.
BOBA holds monthly member meetings, including networking and information sharing opportunities. BOBA members can also attend professional development and customized training seminars covering a variety of industry topics, including Communication Skills in the Workplace, Conflict Resolution, Dining for Business and more.
BOBA utilizes Jason King, Program Director and Instructor of Peak Technical Institute’s professional hospitality training, for professional development seminars. King, better known as “The English Butler,” has worked as a butler and estate manager on properties from Austria to the Hamptons and has trained the elite in residential, hospitality and the yachting industries and the British Embassy in D.C. From private islands to estates, and on international yachts, King has trained all over the world.
BOBA’s unique training partnership offers top-of-the-line educational practices and hands-on experience to prepare small businesses with The Tools You Need to Grow Your Dream®.
“I am thrilled to see the potential of this great partnership between BOBA and Peak flourish and benefit our small business community,” Dr. Eric W. Barton, BOBA’s president and CEO, said.
“These professional development opportunities help small business owners across the nation hone the art of business etiquette on a small business budget,” Barton continued. “This continues the BOBA mission of providing the beneficial benefits and tools to small business owners so they can focus on growing their business and in turn growing jobs and their local economies.”
