Experienced business owners helping each other succeed
Under the guidance of the Business Round Table team, each group of 8 to 10 experienced business owners meets once per month for about three hours to discuss the challenges and opportunities of each of the members.
The structured meeting format allows each member to tap into the collective wisdom and experience of the group to help each other solve problems, prevent mistakes and make the most of their opportunities. The members hold each other accountable to achieve their goals. Business Round Table has been helping business owners since it started over thirty years ago.
It is effective guided mutual mentoring.
Your Own Board of Directors
Your “sounding board” will provide advice and feedback from experienced business owners. They will hold you accountable to get things done.
New Ideas and Approaches
You get to tap into the ideas and approaches of other business owners, people who know what it’s like to operate a business. You can bounce your ideas off them to see if you are crazy or not.
Practical Business Knowledge
Group members must have at least 5 years of business ownership. The members represent a broad range of business experience. Diversity generates creativity which leads to new ideas.
Innovative Problem Solving
The varied experiences of the members provide new ways of looking at old business problems. Sometimes we develop blinders and can’t see different ways of doing things.
The Power of Business Friends
The discussions are totally confidential and the members learn to trust each other totally and become close advisors and friends. Members learn from each other.
Increase Personal Efficiency
Members learn from each other how to be better delegators and more efficient and effective, leading to improved profits for their business and more free-time for themselves.
Why Business Round Table Works
Each group is put together so there are no two members in the same business category. No COMPETITORS.
Each group holds its members accountable for achieving their goals and long-term plans.
The Business Round Table system gets results for its members. It has worked for over thirty years.
All members sign a Confidentiality Contract promising never to disclose anything that is discussed in the group
Run Your Business Better
Make Your Life Better
There’s a lot of noise out there on how to grow your business but not so much on how to run your business better. If your business can’t run without you, you don’t have a business, you have a job. Learn how to get your business to function as a system so it can be saleable someday.
Each group typically has a total of 50 to 75 years of business experience.

What Members are Saying about Business Round Table
If you own a small business and have an opportunity to participate in the Business Round Table (BRT) I would strongly encourage you to do so. Members of BRT share many of the same challenges as owners of a business, it can be lonely at the top and few understand. The round table provides an open forum to discuss both business and personal challenges with like-minded people in the community. We have all criticized our field with peers in the same business, but the round table goes beyond the broad discussions challenging every business in an industry and helps you focus on your business operation. Ideas and concerns are viewed in a different light when the baggage of the industry is removed. BRT has strict confidentiality rules, the more you give the more you will receive.
10 Year Member
I feel, as a small business owner, that the BRT experience is valuable. I enjoy the opportunity to view business situations from different perspectives. I leave our meetings with a very positive frame of mind.
An enormous number of businesses fail in the first 10 years. Business Round Table helps make sure your business is one of the long-term survivors.
