Types of Peer Advisory Groups
Connect with Like-Focused Leaders in a Confidential Setting
I was a bit hesitant to join. I was unsure about time commitment and worth. After attending a few meetings, I realized the group was not only enjoyable but highly beneficial. Connecting with peers in the same industry has had a profound impact on both my personal and professional life. The diverse backgrounds of the members give me unique perspectives on problem-solving, which has greatly enhanced my own approach.
