Advantages of joining MD2MD
Our weekly online meetings have proven to be a fantastic sounding board to sense check day to day business decisions I am having to make.

So, you’ve heard how MD2MD has benefit some of our members. The graph to the left demonstrates even more advantages of joining MD2MD.
Kaizen - The power of tiny gains
“The whole principle came from the idea that if you broke down everything you could think of… and then improved it by 1%, you will get a significant increase when you put them all together”
Performance Director British Cycling 8th August 2012
At MD2MD we believe in this principle, and want to help you to become the best leader you can be, step by step, every step of the way.Read more
Immediate benefits are generally the by-product of membership, rather than the main purpose. The most significant returns from membership are as follows:
- Better decisions implemented more effectively due to insights gained from meetings
- Higher-performing teams due to increased confidence, competence, and motivation
- Personal energy and enthusiasm to overcome the challenges of running a business
It is proven that better leadership improves business performance. That said, it is difficult to track your great decision back to a meeting six months prior, and it isn’t always clear when raising your game has helped the team to work smarter. If membership adds a spring to your step and the energy to tackle problems more effectively, how can you measure this tangibly?
Our members have tens or hundreds of staff, and make decisions worth thousands, tens of thousands, or millions of pounds. To justify MD2MD membership, you only need to improve team performance by 1%, or make one key decision more effectively every year.
However, like many business leadership decisions, the value must be judged by an experienced businessperson. See more of what our members have to say below.
