What we do...

Peer to Peer workgroups for MDs

Developed from the academically proven "action learning" sets, comprising between 4 – 6 MDs/CEOs, these 2 hour agenda-free sessions provide an opportunity for peer to peer debate.

The fundamental ethics of the groups are drawn from the collaborative processes of Einstein, Heisenberg and Bohr which were in turn developed from ancient Greek principles developed by Socrates and called Koinonia. Their principles were:

  • Establish Dialogue
  • Exchange Ideas
  • Don't Argue
  • Don't Interrupt
  • Listen carefully
  • Clarify your Thinking
  • Be Honest
  • Confidential

Our Peer to Peer Workgroups are the backbone of the MDHUB

The MDHUB academy has been designed to directly support our members’ growth. New entrepreneurs tell us that they need more breadth of management knowledge to support their business drive, enthusiasm and often very specific product or service know-how. More established entrepreneurs need to develop their inexperienced management teams to support business growth.

In response we have designed the MDHUB academy programme:

“As the sole owner of a small business I find MDHUB workgroups an invaluable source of feedback and inspiration”

MDHUB mentoring provides one-to-one support for our members from one of our experienced business consultants.

Following further discussion with you to understand your specific business needs and, importantly, your personal goals, we will help you to design an action plan incorporating both, with staged achievement points.

Our business mentor will then meet you on a regular basis to review progress, challenge your thinking and provide you with an external perspective on your planning. The mentoring will be flexible and arranged to suit the pace of the changes you want to make to your business. 

Knowledge Hub

The huge pool of business experience and knowledge within the membership, the facilitators and our external advisors is at your fingertips.

Through our partnership with Knowledge Peers we also bring you access to a wealth of on-line content which explores emerging ideas, forward thinking and upcoming challenges by gathering experiences from the people who make decisions at the top of organisations. They have built a library of research, topical insights and video based case studies which is biased towards emerging trends, new ways and new markets.

This combination of off and on-line peer to peer support gurantees that you can access any information you might need to grow your business.
