Business Owners’ Strategy Groups
This group is a virtual board of noncompeting business owners seeking more from their businesses. Groups meet virtually to leverage their geographic diversity. Our virtual processes provide a cost-efficient and time-saving alternative to traditional CEO peer groups. John McAdam, an instructor in Strategic Business Planning from the Wharton Small Business Development Center, a serial entrepreneur, and a former hired CEO, manages the facilitators. Our ideal business-owner/CEO member runs a firm in the $5 to $50 million revenue range, with a minimum of ten employees.
Some stories from our members include:
A sales turnaround at an oil and gas products company achieved a higher level of sales success than we anticipated. Consequently, the owners actually sold the company.
- An E-commerce marketing integration plan helped a commercial construction firm grow, with quotes and profitable work.
- A division of a parent company received funding based on a one-hour business plan with facilitator feedback. New customer acquisition continues.
- An IT company in Philadelphia became more competitive with commercial bidding after implementing one-on-one action plans.
- A corporate reorganization and work culture project over multiple sessions helped members of this family business work more productively together.
Every meeting we:
- Learn something new;
- Share a strategic topic common to us all;
- Solve problems;
- Discover new perspectives on making money or saving money;
- Help someone based on our collective experiences;
- Each have something to work on and think about with our business; and
- Share a laugh or two.
The Value Exchange
While there is a fee, if you don’t get at least ten times your investment back after a year, then we will refund your money. Members get value out of their business owners’ strategy group in three ways:
- Monthly group strategy sessions – we work on business issues with fellow business owners who have been there and done that;
- One-on-one private sessions with your facilitator/advisor/sounding board to help you achieve your goals; and
- Learning from fellow business owners and leveraging their experience about whatever you are working on today.
How to RSVP:
We want to learn more about you and your business. When we talk, here are some questions we’ll ask you:
- What are you looking to get out of a peer group of business owners?
- What is the present state of your business?
- From a professional development standpoint, what are you working on specifically about yourself as a leader?
- What business issues are you working on right now?
