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 for over thirty years.
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

What Members are Saying about Business Round Table
Just a few words .. When I joined BRT I completed the GOAL WORKBOOK. This was at the first retreat where you stepped us through the exercises of LONG TERM GOALS, STRATEGIC OBJECTIVE and the WISH LIST. I would admit that I did not complete the actual document until months later as I felt it required reflection. On occasion, I have revisited the document with updates. Today is one of those days, sitting on a flight and Blackberry battery is dead. As I read it through I choose to modify my Mission Statement by one word. It still feels as appropriate today as it did 5 years ago. The GOALS are particularly interesting as the projections I had set aside for 2014 are accomplished. This would suggest my perspective of what was achievable has to changed. (pessimist or optimist??) It just feels go to acknowledge that how far I have come. The WISH LIST is fun. So far, I have checked off 18 of those 31 things I wanted to do. Some of the remaining seem lofty, but you never know. ,,,and I added two more to the list today. Anyway, .. the purpose of my writing is to thank you for creating the vehicle and motivation! Regardless of how long I remain a BRT member, (I have no plan to leave anytime soon. SMILE) I am sure I will keep this list as a part of my life for many years. I also hope my message serves to remind you that you are leaving your footprint on many business owners.

It has been a great 20+ years. It is hard to summarize all the positive things that the group has helped me with – marketing, HR issues, accounting, strategic planning, personal issues and other areas. It has been said that you can’t make every mistake yourself. This interaction with other business owners allows you to learn from other entrepreneurs with varied experiences and backgrounds. I could not recommend enough that every business owner find a group to join.
