Peer Group Forums



About Us


We bring great people together

Talented people, digging deep, helping each other

There is no denying that personal coaching, getting support from your peers or staying abreast of critical business trends can all help you be more effective at leadership. 

Now there is an organization that offers a combination of all these elements in a model that recognizes just how busy you are. Peer Group Forums has been established with the vision to make exceptional executive peer advisory groups, and the vast benefits they bring, accessible to as many executives as possible.

We recognized the gap that exists in authentic and practical professional executive development, at a price that is affordable, and a time commitment that is realistic. Our extensive research of member needs, we have structured a model that addresses the most important aspects of business and personal ambitions, to ensure that our members achieve their goals and outperform their competitors

Why does Peer Group Forums Exist? Quite simply, we know that the top executives in any organization have challenges, face issues and operate in a world that is hard for most others to understand or comprehend. The CEO/COO rarely has co-workers whom they can open up to or who don’t have a personal agenda that tends to filter what really should be said. C-level executives face many of the same challenges, and as a result they need a place to go where they can vet their ideas, get mentoring and get unfiltered feedback in a confidential, noncompetitive forum of their peers.

Peer Group Forums was born of the vision that decision-makers like yourself, should be able to come together with like-minded professionals and collaborate, learn from each other and tackle the most pressing issues. As a result, you can achieve higher levels of success - in your business and in all aspects of your life.

As a result, we know what it takes to put together an effective and value-driven member experience. We understand just how much can be gained when CEO/COOs and leaders collaborate. You will take away invaluable knowledge from the hands-on experiences of other top minds. With this knowledge in hand, your business sense and success will be taken to the next level.
