The Elevate Advisory Group is  for business owners who have worked through the challenges of the early years; typically have employees and HR demands.

This program is a year-long confidential peer advisory group that is professionally facilitated by an experienced business coach, Jessica Schimert, 2015 Winner of the SBA Women in Business Champion of the year.  

This special cohort group will allow you the opportunity to share issues and concerns – and obtain real world ideas and solutions.

The group is comprised of women whose business do not compete but are similar in size, revenues, number of employees, and other key characteristics.

Each Launch Advisory Group will be large enough to assure diversity of background and experience, and small enough to promote meaningful interaction.

You will learn best practices and form a network of referrals and resources. You gain insight, support and confidence of women who know exactly what you’re going through. Most importantly, you take the time to focus on strengthening and growing your business.

Meetings take place monthly. Based on the needs of your group, roundtable discussions may be supplemented with expert guest speakers. Your facilitator is specially trained to elicit the most creative thinking and strategic problem solving. Chatham House rules apply to the discussions. Confidentiality agreements will be maintained.

Your group will identify its own critical issues, needs and goals to develop a specific annual work plan to address them. Topics could range from sales, marketing, public relations, finance and information technology to more complicated matters such as strategic planning, organizational development, delegating and chain of command, human resources, ethics and international trade.

Recurring: Third Tuesday of every month

* Cost is a one time fee for the year.
