About International Business Development Professionals

International Business Development Professionals, (IBDP) is a community of people that are dedicated to careers in Business Development. They are passionate about learning and sharing best practices that will help them grow as well as shape how business gets done in the industries they work in. Our members seek to challenge and improve themselves by sharing their successes and greatest challenges; this will define us as a community and a profession.


Vision Statement: Where do we want to go?

IBDPros is the premier, global resource for all Business Development Professionals. It’s a place to grow personally and professionally, advance your career, and expand your network through regular educational and social programs. Join our community of business development professionals to set yourself apart from the rest.

Mission Statement: How will we get there?

IBDPros is driven to deliver the best content from the world’s leading business development experts across various industries. We offer the highest level of educational content, delivering critical and practical knowledge to be successful. Professionals at all levels of their careers can collaborate with peers and share real world experience at our monthly programs. Differentiate yourself from others in the BD field and open yourself up to networking globally.

Purpose Statement: Why do we do what we do?

IBDPros defines how business development relates to sales and marketing, ensuring that communications are clear, and goals are met. We address a lack of communication and misalignment of expectations between the business development professional and the organizations they support. These gaps cost time and money; therefore, we address the disconnects and answer the questions that people don’t know to ask.
