How do Peer Groups work?

Peer Learning

Around seven-8 people, in senior roles in Professional Services firms, meet and share emergent issues and experiences, in a holistic manner, with the goal of learning from each other’s insights.

Supportive environment to explore sensitive issues, outside of the workplace

Members set the agenda

Deep dive into the issues the group decide is a priority


Members should not share commercially sensitive information but are free to use any other information obtained during a meeting as they wish provided, they do not disclose the identity of the member who supplied it.  Competition: while one of the benefits of being in a peer group is to share knowledge and experiences between members however, we do not support any anti-competitive activity.
