WHAT WE DO BEST!

Peer Support for Business Leaders

We strategically bring together exceptional cohorts of ambitious, talented and experienced C-Suite Executives from diverse sectors. Our passion is supporting and guiding Business Leaders to achieve personal and organisational success through peer support-mentoring.

The Roundtable meets regularly and every member gains from experience-based learning. Because no matter how experienced you are, there will always be someone in the group doing things more effectively than you in some areas.

You have a fresh sounding board for ideas. Your ideas will be well tested, pulled apart and challenged so you make sound decisions and avoid costly mistakes.

The Roundtable Members help identify your blind spots and give you honest feedback. And most importantly your trusted advisors give you genuine, valuable and frank advice when the going gets tough.

It's your chance to turn the 'prickly' issues that keep you awake at night, into positive solutions that propel you forward both professionally and personally.

 

 

Ideas grow better transplanted into another mind than the one where they sprang up.

Connecting for Growth

PURPOSE & PASSION

Super Circle of Trust

The cornerstone foundations of our Roundtable groups are:

  • A committed working group of 12 members with the same functional role who meet on a regular basis

  • An environment for collaboration and informed decision making through shared insights, knowledge and experience

  • No one competes for business or has conflicting interests – this fosters a high level of trust and confidentiality

  • A dedicated Chair who facilitates interactive roundtable conversations to bring about key learnings and outcomes

  • Expert guest speakers who share their knowledge, encourage members to think deeper and answer their important questions

  • High level networking across different Roundtables

  • Membership which is protected from any supplier and or vendor relationships

 

The business landscape is increasingly complex and the bar is now higher than ever for the Progressive Executive who wants to drive change.
 
 
JOINING FORCES

Membership with Meaning

It begins with your specialised peer group

 

We facilitate peer Roundtables based on functional roles. Members of the group assist each other in solving the most pressing business issues and concerns. They count on their peers to provide fresh perspectives and new ideas at regular group meetings. When placing twelve curious and high-performing Executives in a room, there are no limitations on thought leadership and tangible outcomes.

Meetings led by a dedicated Chair

 

 

Our Roundtable Chairs are former business leaders from a diverse range of industries. They have real world experience, a reputation for achieving great success in business and passionate about professional development.

 

The role of the Chair is to oversee and guide each meeting – they facilitate meaningful conversations and effective knowledge sharing, helping you to make better decisions and ultimately, achieve better results in business and life.

You succeed best and quickest by helping others to succeed.

FUTURE PROOFING

The Bold Benefits

Are you equipped for the changing future? Do you know where it's coming from? Do you have the right stuff? How will you get there? And how will you know?

 

Being part of a ‘like minded’ specialist peer support group provides invaluable key benefits;

 

  • grow your business by recharging your thinking  with new approaches, forward planning and fresh perspectives.

  • learn from other successful peers in your group – ignite ideas around your own practices by learning from the experiences of others in your specific field.

  • count on confidential and honest advice from a circle of trusted peers whose only agenda is to help you succeed.

  • drive collaboration & innovation within your peer group.

  • build your professional network. 

The ability to learn from others is the most important quality a leader can have.

ON THE BENEFITS  OF HER ROUNDTABLE

Chief Financial Officer
SEEK

“I really value my membership of my Roundtable. As well as being fun and engaging, I look forward to spending time on a semi-regular basis with forum members from other industries and explore topics in a safe, confidential setting. 

 

And yes, I’m a CFO, but the strategic and operational context that other members bring to topics that I may be struggling with is hugely helpful. At the end of the day, many issues are common across the C-suite and taking a different point of view on topics is very refreshing.

 

Listening to Roundtable members and external speakers on relevant topics allows me to rise above the day to day noise and I find I often solve other unrelated issues that I may have been struggling with”.
