A community of business leaders

Working collaboratively to accelerate better leadership

Join us

Embracing an ethos of community

for the development of leadership in a fast evolving world.

In today’s business world the role of running a successful organisation is rapidly changing and business leaders are challenged to keep learning and adapting to stay effective.

Today’s world is shaped by technological and commercial innovations as well as the significant disruptions of Covid driving the rise of remote working options. Rapid and often unpredictable change now being the constant, places pressure on leaders to be more able to adapt and evolve quickly as situations evolve.

Leaders, regardless of experience, are now more often facing previously uncharted waters and recognising they don’t have all the answers. Todays leaders need to be able to access a new model of development for themselves and their leadership team.

When you are not really sure what is the right course of action, is when you want other, real operational leaders around you who you can tap in to to give you the insights from their experience in a similar situation.

MD2MD business leaders

Collaborative learning

MD2MD is built upon the view that business leaders value the ideas of other business leaders so across all our activities there is an ethos of shared insights, experience and knowledge to address the challenges being relentlessly placed in front of leaders.

Membership places you at the heart of a community, where you can feel connected and engage collaboratively with other business leaders often facing common challenges in these uncertain and ambiguous times.

Our peer groups, and associated services enable leaders and their leadership teams to tap into the real world experiences of others as a source for your own development. share uncertainties, road test strategies and gain valuable insights from subject experts, all designed to develop the confidence to grow and forge ahead of your competition.

Valuing different perspectives

As Professor Meredith Belbin identified back in the 1970s, the strongest teams are those that are most diverse.

The MD2MD community is formed of a diverse group of fellow leaders. They may work in a different country or sector; perhaps within a different ownership structure or operational scale, or maybe they are at a different age or career stage.

Whatever their situation, when members bring a variety of backgrounds, cultures, and experiences, it challenges you to see different perspectives, to think differently and stretch your beliefs. It helps you look at the challenges you are addressing from a different angle, discover unique solutions and make effective business decisions.
