Membership, subscriptions and benefits

Between meetings:
MD2MD also aims to be a helpful source of information and contacts for members so if you need to know something or someone or need some service and think we might be able to point you in the right direction, please ask.

Finally MD2MD also endeavours to be there when you need us.  So if you have anything on your mind that you’d like to run past someone independent and detached yet supportive and experienced, please  ask your group manager and if they can’t help themselves they will endeavour to connect you with someone who can.

There is no additional fee for the quick high value limited time remote support MD2MD provides for members.  It is part of the service.  If you need more in-depth support, Bob is available for business coaching, mentoring, non exec roles and board facilitation.
