The pragmatic and practical approach BEX take to delivering Lean Six Sigma training ensured the trainees successfully delivered projects that added to the bottom line. Within 3 months of the course ending, the projects – delivered as part of the course – had achieved savings in excess of 5 times the total investment in the training.
The boot camp met all of the needs that we needed to address – key terms, introduction to different frameworks, introduction to the two BEX excellence frameworks, and practical exercises to highlight the skills needed. We had access to a group of highly experienced and skilled excellence specialists from BEX to contribute different perspectives on the content and on us. I fully appreciated the access I had during the sessions to such a high level of expertise. The sessions were highly interactive. I got all of my questions answered and then some.
My experience with the Institute has been very interesting and uniquely beneficial. The team strives to deliver excellence at every occasion, in every interaction. The members are often in senior positions, with a desire share,
and they have a wealth of experience. I have most enjoyed some of the innovative activities such as the gamification events - lots of fun and a new way of learning. I unreservedly recommend BEX to anyone in business. Well done BEX Team!
Marketing Director IT Services Europe, Ricoh Europe, Milan
My membership in BEX has provided me with a wide-open window into the world of business excellence and how to help clients achieve it. While excellence and standards frameworks may be expressed in terms of a model sustained over many years,
the knowledge around excellence is constantly evolving, and it's here where BEX excels. I have found it to be the best resource yet for helping me gain greater clarity on excellence, particularly through the Knowledge base - the Articles, Tools and Blogs have been most helpful. The other great aspect of being a BEX member is the privilege of being part of an excellence community of truly accomplished fellow-members. BEX has greatly strengthened my ability to communicate the benefits and realities of excellence programs to clients in a way that's meaningful to them.

After booking a BEX event on my calendar, I do everything necessary to safeguard the date. Knowing that BEX will provide a convivial atmosphere in which to meet interesting people from multiple disciplines, I can be certain that I will come away a little richer from
the experience. A newly gleaned nugget of wisdom; a new business contact; endless possibilities...
Change Consultant and Executive Business Coach, Dublin
It has been one of the great pleasures and honors of my career to make the acquaintance of John and others at BEX. They are an endless source of information, as well as unique personalities. I would recommend BEX to anyone who requires a connection to knowledgeable, fascinating experts.
Independent Consultant / Expert Witness, New York
I have been a BEX member for about seven years, and a Recognized Excellence Expert since 2017.
John, Matt and Neal are exceptionally competent organizational excellence professionals and a major source of inspiration and trusted advice over the years. They have provided much guidance during my United Arab Emirates' government excellence surveys, most recently in October 2018. BEX is a wonderful international organization. Its member platform contains many useful articles, which I have shared with colleagues and clients. I strongly recommend that you become a member.
Pascoe Management Consulting, Vancouver
BEX has delivered on all its promises and more. The network has been invaluable in my development and application of best practices for achieving and maintaining excellence. I have received fruitful work referrals that continue to pay dividends and have expanded my network to new territories as well as gained opportunities in other sectors. My work with BEX is, well, excellent. Their trainings are impactful, professional and cost effective. I am given all the resources and tools I need for immediate implementation and the team is always available when I have questions or need advice.
VP of Business Development, Riiid Labs, Los Angeles
BEX is a team of highly professional experts in a wide range of different fields. I have had the chance to meet John and exchange thoughts with him on numerous occasions, it is always fun and inspiring. I recommend BEX to anyone striving to reach outperformance.
Product Manager, Laird a DuPont Business, Lyon
We value our organizational membership of the Business Excellence Institute and the support we get from them. Being assessed using the Business Excellence Alignment Model (BEAM) provided us with the understanding needed to build our change map and a way to measure our change progress. They are an ongoing source of expertise and advice as we continue to navigate significant change to modernize our operations and our programming. We even turned to them to create three of our core courses, on leadership, ethics and strategy.
Dean, Dalhousie University Faculty of Open Learning & Career Development, Halifax
The BEX team are consummate professionals with a wealth of diverse experience between them. We really enjoy working with them, as they always have a new and interesting take on things. They have a fantastic focus on delivery of optimal solutions for members.
