Who Can Join

No vendors. Big companies. Leaders only. (Yes, really.)

This is a vendor-free community for people like you, with jobs like yours, at companies like yours — and problems like yours.

This is the group for people leading the programs. Members are senior decision makers, along with their inner circle. You’ll be talking with people who are actually running the program, with experience and knowledge to share. Never find yourself with a recent hire, trainee, or junior staff.

Who’s in this group: senior leaders, major corporations, sophisticated programs.

Every single participant and company is screened. No exceptions.

No vendors.

Absolutely no vendors will ever be allowed to participate in this organization. No exceptions. As a member, you will never get a sales pitch for anything, ever. There are no sponsors, and we will never give vendors access to you.

Big companies with sophisticated programs.

Every member company has $1B or more in revenue, with at least 4,000 employees. The members of this group have sophisticated programs and experience to share. Because the scale they operate on is just like yours, the solutions to the challenges often work for your organization — even when you’re in completely different industries.

Hands-on leaders who run the programs.

Every member you meet will be a senior leader who’s a decision maker with substantial professional experience. They understand the challenges you face and are ready to help.

This community is not a training organization and is not for front-line staff. It’s not for people in tactical roles. New hires, people in entry-level roles, and junior staff (even if they’re being groomed for a future leadership role) are not allowed.
