JOIN THE FORUM

Get ready to connect, be challenged and grow!

Our Approach for Success

Each Forum consists of up to 20 business leaders (peers) from non-competing companies, made up of member companies across multiple industries. Group interactions are 100% confidential and provide a safe, yet challenging, productive environment for working through issues, exploring opportunities, and sharing best practices.

Innovation Core Values: Do the Right Thing, Take Action, Never Trade Results for Excuses, Go the Extra Mile, Take Care of Each Other, Have Fun!

Forum members gather monthly with their group for approximately five hours, including lunch for in-person groups. This monthly meeting follows a fairly standard agenda which involves hearing updates from their fellow Forum members, exploring a specific business-building topic together, digging deeper into one or more of fellow Forum members’ businesses, and establishing specific goals, tasks, and/or accountabilities for the following month.

Each Forum member also receives quarterly, customized and targeted Executive Coaching from the Forum Leader, and the group participates together in an annual, full-day business planning retreat, often including key members of their executive
teams.

Great question!

It's our goal to ensure that all forum members get the most out of this community experience.

So, we ask you key questions to ensure that your company is at the point where you can implement the business growth strategies.

We also want to determine your commitment level to help create a confidential and healthy peer-peer community.

The bottom line is, if we can't create a win-win situation for you in the Strategic Growth Forum community then we want to save you the time and the money and point you in a different direction.

What's the required commitment level for the forum?

We ask for an annual commitment so that you can get the most out of the forum.

We meet on a monthly basis and have quarterly 1:1 meetings with the facilitator.
