Covid-19 & Beyond

During this global pandemic, we are committed to providing our clients with relevant and timely services that are delivered safely and effectively.

Our team is well equipped to provide remote training, coaching and mentoring. Even before the pandemic, many of our clients preferred to work with us online or by phone due to geography, personal preference or convenience. We have updated our website and are continually adding features to make it easier for our clients and team members to better work together. We can share documents online and track goals. Services like Zoom, Microsoft Teams and Google Meet allow us to connect in the way that best suits you and your organization.

We have also developed new training programs to assist clients during this difficult period. Visit our Programs and Services page to see how the Bonar Institute can help you lead in turbulent times. For updates, please subscribe to our newsletter.
