Mentor-led peer groups kicking off this month

Having had more and more requests for assistance with business modernization and doing one-on-one direct consulting on this topic, I started tossing around the idea of a mentor-led peer group. It gained a bit of traction and this month the group will kick-off.

Ed Gallagher A+, N+, APC, CNA, CTT, MCSS, MCP, MCP+I, MCSE, MCTS, MCITP, MCT, MVP will be the primary mentor for this group. Ed’s a professional trainer and Microsoft devices MVP for 15 years. Amy Babinchak will assist.

I envision these groups as being places where you come, learn, develop a trusted group of like-minded people and maybe move between groups that are focused on different topics. I’ve been in a group for several years that I value very highly and it’s made a HUGE difference for me. I want that for you too. It’s not about everyone in the group being the same; there’s actually more value when there are differences.

What the groups will be

  • small
  • on topic – always
  • focused
  • productive

What will be discussed?

  • Transitioning from RMM to MEM, MAM and MDM
  • Modern management
  • Business modernization
  • Growth

How will they run?

  • equal time for each member
  • what’s new
  • mentor comments
  • group asks
  • semi-annual guest speaker

What the groups will NOT be

  • Unfocused
  • general business chatter
  • hogged by an individual
  • a time sink

Membership in the group will cost $200 per month. Each month you’ll be billed automatically whether you show up or not. Please show up! The groups are only successful if everyone commits. You’ll meet once a month for 90 minutes with your group. Sign up here The group will decide upon the ongoing meeting date during it’s first meeting.

In January the first meeting will be two hours, so we can get the introductions and organizational stuff out of the way and still have a productive meeting. They will only get better from there. I really hope to see you decide to modernize your business and grow.
