What is a board meeting like?

The monthly Boards run for about 6 hours with a tightly-focused agenda. The meeting includes a FastGrowthTM Project and several mastermind sessions which are facilitated by the Regional Director.

The Projects focus on the critical aspects of a business which include Goals + Strategy, Operations + Efficiencies, Leadership + People and Development of profitable customers and products. With over 50 Projects in the arsenal, members are guided to critically think about these areas of their business in order to form strategic conclusions about their situation and draw up actionable next steps to move forward.

The Board Meeting also includes three powerfull mastermind sessions.

The mastermind is a process to help an individual member present a topic concerning their business, gain clarity and additional perspectives before taking a decision that could cost them valuable resources.

Members also have an access to the GOLDTM coaching program, for a separate fee. It is designed for one-on-one coaching for the SME Owner-CEO and dovetails seamlessly into the Board membership.

Do Masterminds work?

Napoleon Hill first talked about Masterminds over 100 years ago and the rest, as they say, is history. Business leaders from Henry Ford all the way to Steve Jobs and many of the most successful entrepreneurs in the country have used Masterminds. The power of the Mastermind is tapping in to the experience of your peers. So yes, they do work, but what does that really give you?

It’s knowing you’re no longer alone to start with. Then it’s collaborating openly and candidly with your fellow peers to open up a world of possibilities and focus for your business. You will be able to take a load off your shoulders, learn new skills and form new connections in your business and personal networks. Ultimately you will end up thinking bigger as you stretch beyond your boundaries when engaging with these amazing people doing amazing things.

And you cannot help but feel you have found your tribe of equals that really understand you and your challenges!
