Just in case you were wondering...
How is this free?
We partner with member-endorsed network partners who are rated as experts in their field. They share expertise during roundtable discussions and - where appropriate and with members’ approval – we make introductions them so that members can tap into their advice and experience.
Do I have to attend 'vendor meetings'?
No. There are no obligations or inducements to meet with anyone or participate in anything that doesn't interest you. We (and our partners) understand that hard sell is a turn off and that involuntary meetings just waste everybody's time.
What is the time commitment?
Apart from the initial exploratory call, none. If what we propose doesn’t interest you, that’s fine. We will contact you no more than once a month to let you know about potential connections and activities that we think you will be interested in.
What's in it for me?
Our members are practitioners in senior leadership roles, meaning you can exchange ideas, experience and thinking with peers. Intent Group works for those who are open minded to new methods and strategies, no matter how experienced they are.
We don't believe in small print or 'catches', so take a look at the FAQ page to find out what being a member means in practice.
