The BD Guild is excited to announce and salute the Certified Business Developer Class of 2019. This the third graduating class of the CBD program and the program continues to evolve. The class of 18 professionals was an eclectic mix of background and experience. From those just getting started in the BD profession to those with greater than 25 years’ experience to senior technical professionals looking to expand their skill set, the class brought a variety of perspective. In addition, we broadened out geographical representation with three California based professionals who made the trek each month.
On December 17, 2019 we had a fun and joyful member’s only and Graduation where the graduates received their certificates. Atmosphere Commercial Interiors, who has sent three professional through the program were gracious hosts. Downtown Phoenix made it especially interesting with a not so timely power outage but as all Business Developers do, the group adjusted to the situation on the ground to make the evening special.

The BD Guild can now boast of having over 70 CBD’s in the marketplace. 2019 Grad Kimberley Poole, Vice President of Skanska commented “It’s not only an opportunity to obtain additional knowledge and skills, it’s also time to give back and support the advancement of the profession.”
In addition to starting 2020 in Phoenix this May, The BD Guild plans to bring the CBD certification to Southern California in Spring of 2020 as well. Learn more at www.businessdevelopmentguild.com.
