What is the BIP?
Meet Alec Blacklaw

My life ‘s journey has been about learning from some of the very best leaders and businesses in the world. I have been a part of some very good businesses and some that haven’t achieved their potential… and learned from this too. I believe that every business can be more profitable valuable and enjoyable so that they can live the life they desire with many more options for themselves and their family. And that is my big Why.

Helping others using my skills & experience is a privilege. In fact, it’s why I designed The Business Improvement Program. I love life, my wife and family and strive to continually be “the best version of me”  each day and to make a positive impact by giving to others.
