Managing Director to Managing Director

To qualify for MD2MD you must be a Managing Director or similar operational leader.

You must lead tens or hundreds of staff and regularly make decisions worth tens or hundreds of thousands of pounds, whatever your title.  Your primary role is now to engage and enthuse a team in driving towards a shared vision. Managing sales, marketing, operations and development to efficiently and effectively deliver the right balance between profit now and investment for future growth.

You must be interested in MD2MD because you are ambitious to achieve more success for your business with less stress for yourself. Whilst competent and confident you have the humility to realise you can be even better and the desire to be so. Whilst revenues are important to your business, your role is to lead not to generate leads from fellow members and whilst knowledgeable you have as much to learn from them as you have ideas and insights to offer them.
