The PeerSpectives CEO Groups: Peer-to-Peer Learning for Entrepreneurs, is a unique opportunity providing CEOs, presidents, and business owners with:
- timely insights from experienced peers
- proven, productive problem-solving methods
- unbiased knowledgeable feedback
- confidential, focused information sharing
The Wisconsin PeerSpectives Network forms peer groups that are composed of eight to 12 non-competing business owners who gather for confidential sharing of experiences and challenges approximately 10 times over a 12-month period. The peer-to-peer exchanges enhance the decision-making processes, critical for owners who want to grow their already established companies.

“The Peerspectives CEO Roundtable is a great way to combat “it’s lonely at the top” syndrome because you work with others with the same pressures and issues that you can talk honestly about problems and get real world feedback. The rules of engagement in Peerspectives make it far more effective than any other business group I have participated in. Limited air time, no advice allowed and working on each other’s specific and timely issues each month is a huge plus.”
Each PeerSpectives roundtable is led by a facilitator trained by the Edward Lowe Foundation, a non-profit organization committed to providing assistance to business owners seeking rapid growth for their established businesses.
"Peerspectives has changed how I manage my company. When I started attending Peerspectives I was focused on daily activities versus planning and growth strategies. I am now identifying areas that need attention, planning and implementing changes. The group can relate to my current issues. They help guide me with their experiences so I can make the best decision possible. Peerspectives gets all the gears going so I can think about an issue or problem as a whole."

PeerSpectives roundtables provide a valuable opportunity for owners, CEOs and presidents to tap into the collective wisdom of their peers on topics such as finance, employee relations, legal compliance, marketing and advertising, accessing new markets, production, and personal isolation. The group members are committed to confidentiality, sharing, accountability, and dispassionate analysis.
