SMB Nation Peer Groups are made for you.  The groups are made up of owners at all levels of maturity from the company breaking the $500,000 in revenue mark to the $5,000,000 revenue mark.  Our groups are a place for you to get productive input and advice from people walking the same path you are.  You are led by a facilitator with experience working with 100’s of IT companies around the world.  We have facilitated and been involved in IT company peer groups since their inception in 2002. 

SMB Nation Peer Groups come in three versions:

                Owners – opportunity for you to focus on the three big areas of your business from a strategic and analytic perspective.  Highly financial results oriented group.  Review company financials, trends in your company, and identifying trends in the market.

Service Managers – opportunity for you to see the world beyond your owner’s perspective.  Learn how others are offering their services and how they are succeeding and struggling.  Service Managers focus on how to manage workflow, staff, and improve their department’s profitability while providing a world class client experience.

                Sales Managers – you have the hardest job in the company.  The growth of your company rests on your shoulders.  Begin working with others in your industry facing the same challenges as you.  Even your owner struggles with how to help you since you have such a specialized skill set.  Join your peers to help get more perspective and guidance on your next steps.
