MD2MD membership


MD2MD membership is reserved only for operational leaders ambitious to achieve even more business success by becoming even better leaders.

As a prospective member of MD2MD you are likely to be a Managing Director or in a similar, senior operational role such as a CEO but more importantly, you will be heading up the leadership of an organisation of tens to hundreds of staff.

Despite your ambitions to drive your organisation to success you also recognise you do not have all the answers, all of the time. You will have found it can often be lonely at the top when it comes to making the big strategic decisions facing the continuous challenges that you are often wrestling with.

The good news is MD2MD is a community of ambitious leaders just like you and we are in place to support you in your leadership challenges, help find solutions, inspire you to be an even better leader, and build your confidence to lead an even more successful business.

MD2MD understands the challenges leaders face and so do our members, who enjoy the ethos of a community who can support and inspire each other, especially during these unprecedented, turbulent times.

Its no longer lonely at the top

Our purpose

In short, we help raise your game; We stop it from being lonely at the top by facilitating leadership peer group meetings enabling you to develop as a leader and in turn helping you lead an even more successful business.

Our leadership peer groups 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 too.

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

Whilst intangible, most leaders realise that improving their confidence, competence and motivation will improve their performance as a leader and result in the improved performance of the business.
