//Discuss challenges.Share best practices.Explore solutions.//

Have you ever faced a problem that left you thinking, “I can’t be the first person to have gone through this – there must be someone that has solved this before me”?

Have you ever felt alone while going through a rough patch and wished you had more support to help you through? Have you ever felt that you are the bottleneck and that your decisions make or break your future?

Many CEOs and successful entrepreneurs spend thousands of dollars to join advisory groups where their peers help them navigate challenges and enjoy the collective wisdom of the community. That’s part of why they seem so brilliant.

We are now introducing Peer Circles for corporate innovators- offering you the support and encouragement that will help you excel.

APPLY

Carefully matched peers

Circles consist of 6-9 peers selected based on their past experience, current scope and future goals- all keen on discussing challenges and exploring solutions on your topic.

3-months of dedicated support

Circles last for 3 months. The circles meetings happen online, for 90 minutes every other week. The unique meeting methodology has been developed together with advisors from MIT, Harvard, the Entrepreneurs’ Organization and Young Presidents Organization.

A safe space for open and honest conversations

Circles are hosted by professional facilitators, with subject matter experts available to join at request of the group to answer any open questions and share best practices. You’ll feel yourself in a safe, confidential environment where you can have the types of conversations you may not be comfortable having with your colleagues, friends, partners, or even your family.

No travel required- join from where you are

Circles meetings are all held online so you can join from the comfort of your desk or couch, reducing the time you need to invest, and completely eliminating travel costs.

//The peer group you’ve been waiting for all along.//

Circles are focused and fun, effective and engaging, practical and powerful.

Applications are now open for Peer Circles starting as of mid January 2018 via the button below.

You will hear back within 48 hours. If accepted, participation to your 3-months Peer Circle program comes at €475 (ex VAT if applicable).

Questions & Answers

All peers in your circle are selected after application only, and we only accept corporate innovation practitioners- no consultants. We assemble a group based on applications’ past experience, current scope and future goals, so that there’s a proper balance between getting and giving. We value diverse perspectives and so you’ll always find a mix of companies and industries represented in all circles.

All circle participants agree upfront to keep whatever is discussed as part of the circles, confidential, and to respect privacy norms. Our peer circles are a safe space for open and candid conversations for like minded people who have shared goals. In our selection process we’ll make sure to not accept peers from competing brands to one cohort.

Circles meetings are all held online so you can join from the comfort of your desk or couch, reducing the time you need to invest, and completely eliminating travel costs. You’ll get a link to an online meeting room that will be used for all sessions. You can join from your desktop, tablet or phone, although we strongly suggest using video for max engagement for everyone.

Circles are hosted by professional facilitators, with subject matter experts available to join at request of the group to answer any open questions and share best practices. So when the group agrees it’s valuable to get this outside advise, the facilitator will arrange for that.

Participating in a circle requires a time commitment of 6 x 90-min meetings, following a bi-weekly schedule, so over a period of 12 weeks. During one of these meetings, it’s your turn to be in the hotseat. Circles start shortly after the minimum number of participants are accepted. The 1,5 hours you invest every two weeks will make the 80+ other hours more effective.

To ensure a quality experience, we ask you to apply first. Based on your experience, scope and goals, as well as the topic you’d like to focus on, we match you with others. If accepted, you will get confirmation, access details and an invoice, due before the circle starts. Participation comes at € 475 (ex VAT if applicable).
