Allied Executives guarantees member satisfaction.
I find my membership in Allied Executives to be informative, enjoyable and intellectually stimulating. My Peer Group provides an excellent forum for strategic discussion. Meetings include discussions of national and world business events, a detailed look at each other's business, and time for solutions to specific issues. I leave each meeting with a list of thoughts and ideas that I am able to use to improve my business, and I believe other members feel the same way.
My Peer Group consists of high level down to earth practical business owners with real time advice. Our Peer Group Director/Facilitator keeps the meeting on target, productive and fun. I have utilized exceptional resources from the peer group and Allied Executives that have fulfilled personal and company needs with immediate impact and results. I make my monthly Peer Group meeting a priority because of the impact it has on me personally and my company bottom line.
There are three of us from HPM in different Allied Executives peer groups, my brother/partner and I are in owner groups and an employee is in key leader groups. I bring something back from every meeting, ideas and concepts that I use in our company. We develop and blend these ideas and solutions into our own concepts or processes. We also leverage the Peer Group Director to help facilitate balance and alignment with our owners and key leaders.
I have been a member of an Allied Executives peer group facilitated by Tom Fafinski for roughly 6 years. During that time, my firm has grown from 2 lawyers to 6 lawyers, acquired an office building in downtown St. Paul, significantly increased profitability and have obtained a better handle on running the business rather than having the business run me. I learn something from the other participants nearly every meeting. I have become familiarized with bench marking, dash boarding, sales methods and marketing strategies that I do not think I would have otherwise had exposure to. My group also holds me accountable to initiatives I undertake.
Allied Executives gives me the opportunity to discuss major decisions or problems I am encountering in our company with a group of well respected members of the business community. They always give me great ideas or at least a new perspective to take back to the office that will benefit our organization. These individuals challenge and motivate me on a monthly basis to accomplish our goals. I feel that by being a part of Allied Executives we are always one step ahead of the competition.
