What is a peer advisory group?
An EWF International peer advisory forum group has up to 12 women in non-competing businesses. You talk in total confidentiality about the issues you face in your business.
Each member brings her unique skills, strengths and wisdom to the group. Everyone learns and grows.
These strategy sessions are about your real-life challenges, not theoretical business presentations. The feedback and insight you gain from diving into these issues provides sound business advice. EWF members find the Forum so valuable that more than 80 percent of them renew for the next year.
How does it work?
Each Forum meets once a month for a half day of structured, candid and confidential discussion of members most important business issues. Strict confidentiality ensures that every member can be completely honest and open, knowing that what is said in the meeting stays in the meeting.
Each Forum is organized and led by a professional business consultant and group facilitator who understands the role of business owner, CEO or executive.
Every Forum takes an annual educational retreat – the perfect balance of “head and heart.” These annual trips allow members the opportunity to get away while having fun and cultivating loyalty and closeness among the group.
