Its no longer lonely at the top

Our purpose

In short, we help raise your game as a business leader; We stop it from being lonely at the top by facilitating business leader discussions that enable you to develop as a leader and in turn drive even more success for your business.

We enable you to discuss and debate leadership challenges in confidence with other experienced and practical business leaders like you. You learn from the successes (and mistakes) of your peers and in return, they learn from you.

We also present you with additional insights into best practice, in many areas of business, through workshops led by international standard expert practitioner speakers.

Most leaders recognise that improving their confidence, competence and motivation, as MD2MD does, improves their performance as a leader and that in turn results in improved business performance.

Being a member of MD2MD

MD2MD is an exclusive community of operational business leaders ambitious to achieve even more business success by becoming even better leaders.

You may have the job title Managing Director, Chief Executive, Managing Partner or something similar but more importantly, your role is to lead an organisation of tens to hundreds of staff.

Whilst you are ambitious and driven you also recognise, at least internally, that you do not know all the answers all of the time. You will have found it can be lonely at the top when it comes to making big strategic decisions and handling the challenges leaders like you are constantly wrestling with.

The good news is MD2MD is a community of ambitious leaders just like you. People who embrace the ethos of community and empathise with your practical leadership challenges and who will help you find solutions and inspire you to be an even better leader in return for you doing the same for them! Working with fellow business leaders and sharing your leadership journey with others, will build your confidence and competence to lead an even more successful business.

The value to you and your business

As a member of MD2MD you will feel a part of a community of international business leaders. You will benefit from sharing your leadership challenges in a safe environment with other trusted members, from across a diverse range of industries and geographies, who are there to support you when you feel challenged and challenge you when you don’t.

By participating in our range of meetings you will develop even greater confidence and competence from the valuable insights. And your business will gain from the actions that you take and implement back into your business. ​

In summary, MD2MD is about investing in yourself as a leader. If your membership enables just one better major decision, drives just a 1% improvement in engagement or you make a strategic choice that ensures the business is in the right place with the right offer at the right time, then you will get a significant return on your investment.
