No matter how big or small an organization may be, they all have one thing in common: PEOPLE.
Behind processes and protocol that exist within an organization, you’ll find people — the one asset that will ultimately determine how great your organization can be.
Organizations rely on their people to stay innovative, adaptable, and productive in an ever-changing, global economy. Everyday our people are asked to think, move, and act to hit an ever-moving target. And that’s where BEE can help.
We are committed to ensuring both your organization and its people thrive. We don’t believe in taking a cookie-cutter approach. Instead, we draw upon years of experience, practical know-how, and research-based decision making to all that we do. We deliver results – but what really sets us apart is how we deliver – authentic, intentional, methodical, and personal consultation with just one end goal in mind: your success.
Our team is experienced at assessing complex situations and providing immediate support to help improve both individual and organizational performance. We look forward to working with you to develop the goals, strategies, and capacity for your organization’s long-term success.
Our management team has a long history of developing people and infrastructure that help our clients become more successful with a business philosophy based on values that benefit our clients, our associates and our company equally.
Hunter Hay, founder and CEO (Chief Executive Officer) of Business English Elite, has spent ten years in the International Education industry. He has been an International Programs Coordinator and Executive Director at a, privately-owned, English as a Secondary Language company, where he worked on ESL programs for clients from Turkey, Korea, Vietnam, China, Poland, and the Middle East.
Early on, his work took him overseas to countries in which he had no language capabilities. Upon his return to the U.S. from one of these overseas trips, he researched the available language-training classes. There was a wide array of options, but there were far more classes for native English speakers to learn other languages than for those from other countries to learn English – and fewer still that offered a flexible schedule customized to the learner’s availability. Business English Elite was established to fill that gap.
Hay, who holds a Bachelor’s degree in Business from the University of Pittsburgh, has also worked in sports marketing in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and Tampa, Florida. He and his wife live with their son in the Los Angeles area.
