How can the Business of Light help you achieve rewarding business and career goals?


A new non-profit organization called the Business of Light (BOL) has been launched in honor of long-time lighting design icons Barbara Horton and Stephen Lees. As well as designing award-winning lighting projects Barbara and Stephen spent much of their time throughout their lighting careers focusing on the business of design and mentoring next generation leaders.

The BOL was founded to create an educational platform for shared knowledge and training and to grow and strengthen the Lighting Industry.
