Everyone deserves a good network

At EGN, our primary objective is to match you with the right peer group in our network. We carefully bring together the right profiles and facilitate peer groups that all focus on strong relations and valuable communication between like-minded individuals. In your very own peer group, the latest knowledge and ideas, as well as challenges and solutions, are shared. This provides you with the optimal conditions for insightful learning and continuous improvement of both personal and professional competencies.

Words such as “change management” and “disruption” are pervading the business landscape – and this is regardless of whether those themes are on your daily agenda or not. Nonetheless, we know that everyday life demands that we understand and anticipate constant change and this, understandably, can give rise to certain surprises and challenges at work. The network is your source of obtaining valuable insights and the best tools to help you deal with the areas of your work that are important to you and to ensure that you feel confident in the decisions you make. Simultaneously, the network becomes your personal free space where you can test and develop innovative ideas and receive competent feedback from your peer group.

Over the last three decades, EGN has built over 700 strategically strong and innovative peer groups. Common to these groups are high levels of professionalism and confidentiality that rest upon a network community based on trust that provides access to relevant insights and knowledge you do not find elsewhere. With a good network right behind you, you avoid having to resort to expensive alternatives such as supplementary training and courses. Instead, you will always have a distinct group of like-minded professionals at hand, all of whom are competent and knowledgeable in your professional field. Together, you will help each other and work collectively towards making each other better.
