“Being in a peer group is extremely valuable because it’s a place where you can speak confidentially to other business professionals who understand your business issues, and can help you develop a path forward to handling them. It has also fostered my professional growth and helped me to understand and implement a variety of management techniques and strategies through the analysis of several books and articles.”
