“Talking with other second-stage business owners can really help you get over some hard spots. It’s not about giving advice, but sharing experiences and asking key questions that can help you see an issue from a different perspective.”

— Mike Busley, a 2008 CTW honoree and president of Grand Traverse Pie Co.

What topics are discussed in a typical roundtable?

The topics are as varied as the members. Typical issues involve business associates, family members and employees, and revolve around:

Company culture Personnel decisions
Customers Direction of the organization
Marketing Product development
Succession planning Finances

The PRESS model: Roundtables for owners of smaller companies

To suit the needs of small business owners, PeerSpectives Roundtables for the Emerging Second Stager (PRESS) combines valuable interaction with a business expert and the benefits of a peer-to-peer roundtable.
It uses the same PeerSpectives protocol for second-stage roundtables. This is ideal for owners of high-potential first-stage companies on the cusp of becoming a second-stage company.

Ideal participants are owners of first-stage companies with three to nine employees and $500,000 or more in annual revenue. The leader may not have led a company to this point before and does not have a wealth of experience to draw from.

More Info...

Every leader of a second-stage company can benefit from attending a CEO roundtable. Check the list at left to find one near you. But if options aren’t nearby, consider joining a Virtual PeerSpectives roundtable.

This service incorporates all the elements of PeerSpectives – trained facilitators, participants from noncompeting industries, confidentiality, and emphasis on sharing experiences rather than giving advice. The only difference is that you’re meeting via video conferencing rather than face-to-face.

The virtual roundtable meets monthly for six months. Contact us to learn when the next one is available and the price for participants.

Our partners offer in-person roundtables (see left). Don’t hesitate contacting them. To learn how PeerSpectives has improved the decision-making process of second-stagers, see below.
