Executive Leadership

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

This confidential peer group brings together business executives that lead in their organisations to form a collective network, discuss and define best practices towards both daily challenges as well as strategic directions.

The group shares their experience in areas ranging from strategy development to effective execution with a view to 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:

    • How to win the war for Talent on a small budget ‘

    Recruitment and Talent retention

    • ‘Do I need to be the Social Media/Marketing expert or is there a better way?’

              Our Network Advisors can help you find the right group based on your managerial level and professional needs.

              Enter your contact info here and one of our Network Advisors will get back to you.

              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.

              We also offer events and seminars, networking tours, an Between Jobs Scheme, mentoring programmes, CEO coaching and much more.

              How do I become a member?

              You can apply for membership by filling out this form


              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.
