What we do...
Bon Education is a learning and development company with headquarters in the United Arab Emirates. We spend our time creating and implementing learning and development workshops, programs, events and retreats for companies, governments, small businesses, community organizations and nonprofits.
We were founded in 2008 to work on human development projects in the UAE. Since then we have expanded and have worked on learning initiatives in China, Bahrain, Lebanon, Oman, Puerto Rico, the UAE, the USA, Qatar and more.
What we believe...
Our work is based on the following assumptions:
1. Organizations are abundant with talent.
2. Every individual is naturally creative and resourceful.
3. Continuous learning is the heartbeat of organizational creativity, productivity, happiness and growth.
4. Every business or community has the potential to help make the world a better place.
5. When we harness our collective learning and potential, anything is possible.
We are a team of educators, coaches and learning facilitators around the globe.
