What do peer 2 peer members have to say?
“Whilst part of the Vector Fast Growth Peer board program the workshops provided significant impact for my agency business. Throughout the 6 years of involvement we achieved continual year on year growth, more than doubling our turnover, profit and employee numbers. From 2008 to 2014 we grew our team to over 20 full time staff and most significantly as a direct result of one workshop we transformed our cash-flow by setting out a plan to shift from 6 month credit terms with one large client to advanced annual payments of over £300k per year, which ran for 3 consecutive years.”
Ross Thornley, Founder and MD of RT Brand Communications Ltd.
“I became Managing Director by default. I was the Sales Director in 2006 when our MD decided to leave to pursue his dreams in Australia. Suddenly I found everybody was looking at me to become the business leader.
I needed an education and I needed support. Nobody can truly prepare you for the responsibility, the loneliness and the pressure of being the ultimate boss in your business. You can’t ever truly share that with people in your business either. What I needed was a network of great people facing and dealing with the same challenges and a mentor with wisdom and experience.
There are no words that do justice to the value I got from working with a peer 2 peer board once a month for 10 years and sharing the learning and wisdom of Christopher Bayliss and a group of fantastic, driven entrepreneurs who would go on to become close friends and confidantes. I learned to become a Managing Director and a better leader. I will forever be grateful for what I learned and for the support and stimulation of those comrades.
I worked through 60+ workbooks with this group – learning from my peers as much as our mentor and group facilitator. We learned about growing and building a more valuable business.
We live in a fast-changing world. The business grew, flourished, faced new challenges and then grew again.
Now I have two colleagues involved with the Peer 2 Peer learning groups as they prepare to take the reigns and face the challenges of running, growing and building the value of this business in the years to come.”
Paul Tansey, Managing Director of Intergage
“The Peer 2 Peer formula immerses every member in an environment of growth for the individual, the business leader, their teams and businesses. The powerful suite of workbooks drives me to work on my businesses and break habits of working in my businesses too much. The hot seat sessions expand and reinforce my business acumen and the non-exec board on demand provides vital consultation forums. Through Peer 2 Peer I have set, achieved and smashed transformational goals, explored opportunities that otherwise wouldn’t have existed and become part of a community which seeks collective success. I genuinely look forward to my monthly Peer 2 Peer board, it’s therapy for entrepreneurs.”
Samantha Acton, Founder and Director of Domestic Angels Franchising and Paxan Solutions
