Peer Group

Wake Smith Solicitors 11 August 2021

Successful leaders achieve goals better and faster with help.
What is the Wake Smith Senior Leaders Peer Group?
We are an established, diverse and friendly peer group in Sheffield & South Yorkshire.
Ambitious leaders from different sectors and diverse backgrounds connect at Wake Smith Leaders Peer Groups to join with others to gain trusted insights that deliver practical value, support and results for them and their organisations.
Wake Smith Leaders share fresh perspectives and common sense with one another, develop professional friendships and support one another so they can navigate and overcome the big issues and take their organisations forwards. We welcome leaders from all sectors including charities and education as well as business. We also welcome leaders from new organisations and those that are established.
Providing excellence in personal and organisational development, we have three levels of membership peer groups supporting Senior, Growing, and New Leaders in a safe environment. We are there for you at every stage of your leadership journey. Challenges recently discussed include: how to take advantage of the opportunities and challenges presented by Covid, BLM and cancel culture in the Boardroom, succession planning and handling difficult management conversations.
Support between meetings encourages sustainable development, maximises performance and improvement.
We are an established friendly group.
