ABLE 
peer-to-peer learning groups

Our groups fall into two categories - CEO groups and Leaders groups, of which there are three:

  • ABLE London CEO Roundtable
  • ABLE Kingston Leaders' Roundtable
  • ABLE London Leaders’ Roundtable


Membership to all groups is by invitation only. Why? Because we want to make sure our current members are happy with each new addition, and that new people bring the right experience and skill to the group.

Each group comprises non-competitive businesses from different industries and sectors, which gives a broad range of experience and knowledge. It also ensures the confidentiality that is paramount for the success of peer-to-peer learning and allows members to speak freely.

To be a member of any of our groups, you’ll need to commit to regular attendance, be willing to help your peers and take advice from them too. You’ll get help and support from the group in achieving the goals you set – both professional and personal.

 

Here’s what you can expect:

  • Structured, facilitated monthly meetings
  • Confidential, non-competitive environment
  • Supportive peers with no hidden agenda who will challenge you
  • Stimulating exchange of ideas
  • Learn from the experience of others in the group
  • Accountability to help you achieve business and personal goals
  • Renowned international speakers
  • Practical, independent peer advice from the ABLE Clinic

What our members say

Ben Freedman, MD, Bubble Chamber Ltd

I heartily recommend Peter's chairmanship of an ABLE group. He has not only provided an excellent selection of speakers but most crucially has been able to collect together a group of people from a wide variety of backgrounds that seem to share a common value system so essential for building trust within a group.

As an owner of a business I would heartily recommend membership of ABLE. The monthly meetings not only provide me with a lot of learning but also a time for reflection, essential during these times. It has been incredibly useful to meet new people - both other members and the speakers - and also to benefit from the wide variety of different outlooks.

Kathryn Uche, Chief Executive, CAYSH

As a new CEO of a regionally based charity joining ABLE has been the single most useful step I have taken on my journey so far.

Membership has built my confidence, given me a set of useful business tools and has provided an insight into the world of business which every charity needs in these times of change. On top of this it's been my delight to spend valuable time with the bunch of leaders and entrepreneurs which make up the group, their focus, energy, enthusiasm and willingness to help each other become the best they can be is truly inspirational. Thank you.

Arran Coole, Managing Director, ASP

It improved my business confidence enough to add another 0 to the end of our turnover numbers in 3 years; I have a deeper understanding of business; I now focus on working ‘on’ the business instead of ‘in’ the business; I would recommend peer group learning for all business leaders and owners; It can be very lonely at the top but now I have 10 peers to talk to at any time.

Tim Ball, Designer & Branding Consultant, Ball Design

Before I joined ABLE at Warren House I didn’t understand the power, support and the value of external views from a peer group. Now I would advise any CEO to join

Andy Hibbert, Company Director, Reed and Mackay

ABLE adds a different dimension; it gives you the ability to think differently, away from the business - 12 times a year. In the group you get some amazing people.

Jonny Aucamp, Group Executive Chairman, OSTC

Every time I come to a meeting I pick up something new that makes it well-worth it being to that meeting.

Penny Wing, Founder & CEO, Brojure

Peter is a brilliant team leader. He has successfully assembled an effective team of CEO level executives who meet monthly under ABLE to discuss issues. The forum is open and honest. I have found it extremely invaluable in starting my fourth company not only as a support system but learning new skills from our speakers and from each other. I do everything I can to not miss a single session. Peter is enthusiastic about his work which is infectious. Always a positive outlook and he’s good at organizing and bringing the right people together. I know my company will be successful and ABLE has been vital in this start-up phase and for continued growth.
