About Us

The BEO is a business networking group for business owners, managers and decision makers. Our members come from Hamilton, Burlington, Oakville and Milton.

The fundamental purpose of the organization has not wavered since our establishment in 1986: To share new ideas, exchange smart strategies and drive business growth through referrals. We do this through weekly breakfast meetings, helpful resource presentations, member-hosted orientations and numerous social activities.

Each member appreciates their status as the sole representative of their industry classification. This exclusive structure promotes keen focus on the best interests of every member.

These principles are the reason that the BEO has become the most successful leads and business networking group in the region.
