Purpose-driven, community-centric, enterprise development
Ron and Jill White founded BESThq in 2011 after years of coaching and consulting small businesses. Realizing one of the greatest challenges for small business owners is that of feeling alone on their journey, Ron and Jill created a space where entrepreneurs cross paths, collaborate, learn and grow through community.
Built on principles of relationship, empowerment, and inclusion, and guided by Jesuit tradition and Ignatian Spirituality, Beaverton’s Business Executive Sustainable Training Headquarters, BESThq, exists to support the sustainable growth of the businesses that make up our community and to empower individuals to realize their business goals, all this while mindfully considering the quadruple bottom line of People, Profit, Planet and Purpose.
BESThq is a humanistic organization that brings together large and small local businesses to build strong relationships, empower entrepreneurs, and create an inclusive community resulting in a thriving local economic ecosystem.
BESThq works to elevate community and bring the quadruple bottom line of People, Profit, Planet, and Purpose to the forefront of the mission of the businesses, non-profits, and public agencies that are represented within BESThq.
As people for others, BESThq community (members, partners, sponsors and supporters) aspire to embody the Quadruple Bottom-Line (People, Planet, Profit, Purpose) though action as servant leaders.
In doing well in whatever we do, BESThq community seeks purposeful work for greater good and civic benefit while demonstrating love of humanity.
Not alone on our journey, BESThq community communicates positive and encouraging work without tolerance of discrimination while dissolving divisive barriers, bettering underserved communities and sup- porting social justice.
Grounded in a high moral and ethical foundation, BESThq community intersects mind, body, and spirit for the whole person and firm development.
Be it that BESThq community all follow this path for greater achievement and as they reap the benefits of community, they put forth a message of hope and love rooted in BESThq principles of relationship, empowerment, and inclusion.
