Business Owners / SMEs

Cultivate a network that is built on mutual professional aspirations and personal ventures with other business owners.

This confidential group provides a supportive forum to uncover and discuss key issues that confront business owners and SMEs.
Business owners may often find that the issues they really need help with and the type of discussions they want are of a different level and scale from what their regular employed counterparts face. This group allows members to finally attain the information they have been missing by delving into key issues and developing shared solutions that have been established through experience from an ownership perspective. The group also regularly shares their experience in areas ranging from strategy development to effective execution with a view of identifying “best practice” and creating “next practice.”
The current key topics that are being explored during our meetings, and we regularly seek our members’ input to flex and change these as situations change:
    • Group Case Studies and Best Practices
    • Business Development: Strategies and Group Case Studies
    • Growth and Scaling- Tricks to Success on a Tight Budget
    • Converting Leads and Finding the Right Clients: How to Turn Short-Term Clients into Long Term ones
    • Digital Marketing: Tips and Tricks
    • Advisory Boards
    • Sales Models and Lead Generation
    • Legal Pitfalls and how to avoid them
    • Financial Models and Practices
    • Talent Retention & Developing a Team Culture
    • Digitalisation
    • Automation
    • Finding Your Purpose

      From strategy development to effective execution, this is a peer group that will exchange ideas to identify the best practices for tomorrow.

          How does the peer group network work?

          With the support of a professional network, you get the opportunity to exchange experience on a high professional level, strengthen and develop your own skills within management and specialised areas.

          As a member of EGN, you get direct access to Top Executives, Business Leaders and Specialists in most parts of the world via our online Members’ Universe where you can ask questions, join debates and network with more than 15,000 other members.

          Your personal EGN group represents a confidential forum where all ideas and challenges can be discussed with peers at your own, professional level. To ensure confidentiality, no competitors or significant customer relationships are allowed in the same group.

          All our peer groups are managed by a professional and experienced EGN Chair, who facilitates and mentors the peer groups, ensures output both at and between meetings and focuses on your professional and managerial development.

          How do I become a member?

          You can apply for membership by filling out the form here.

          When we have received your application, you will be contacted by a Network Advisor for a more in-depth interview to find the right peer group for your managerial level and/or professional need.

          All candidates must be approved by both the Chair and specific peer group members before joining a group. This is done both to match relevant peers and also to avoid private friends, customer relationships and competitors being placed together in the same network group and to help facilitate honest and fruitful discussions.
