How To Deliver Successful Business Outcomes. Steve Hyland talks to Jim McLaughlin, Chair of Vistage – the No 1 Peer Advisory Group with 2000 UK members. Dun & Bradstreet research demonstrates that Vistage member companies grow 2.2 times faster than non-member companies. We’ll explore how and why.
If you are willing to talk candidly about the tough decisions you face, fellow members will rally around you, listen, ask tough questions and bring to bear every resource they have to help you grow as a leader and improve the workings of your business. When our members have access to new perspectives – whether from fellow business peers, their Vistage Chair, or expert speakers – they expand their view beyond their company walls in a way that traditional executive leadership training just can’t offer.
Jim has a background as a leader in business development for blue chip organisations including Reed International and Racal Group, culminating in a six-year stint as International Sales Director for online information at the Financial Times. With 20 years subsequently running his own businesses, he has a profound understanding of what it takes to achieve success. He knows from personal experience the frustrations and difficulties that can accompany the quest to achieve business goals without sacrificing a healthy work/life balance.
