HISTORY OF BPI

Born with a passion for people

Our story starts with the recognition of the massive and growing demand for organizational transformation and learning in the business world. On the other hand, there is the often limited success of capability building initiatives in terms of lasting impact (or “real learning” as we like to call it) of traditional training methods or common consulting approaches.

BPI – Business Performance Institute was founded by Uwe Niehaus in 2009 to build core capabilities and grow leadership to support organizations towards excellence. Joined by Marc Wuelfrath, they set out to develop a learning consulting venture with the purpose of creating an innovative professional service for business leaders. Alice Vatta joined the leadership team of BPI in 2018 and acting since 2020 as Partner.

 

Together, our leaders have a background that blends direct managerial and consulting experience with a strong people expertise across coaching, teaching, learning design and other people capabilities.

What clearly unites us BPIers is the unrelenting belief in people development and a strong professional ethic to get things done. The BPI family has grown over time to add professionals from a multitude of nationalities, backgrounds, experience levels and professional capabilities. We are all driven by the idea to help people discover learning as a positive force in their professional growth. Our powerful team has fueled BPI’s growth, bringing it to become an established boutique learning consulting company, supporting corporate and non-profit clients across the world in solving their capability building challenges.
