“The events are amazing, the speakers are extraordinary, but the most useful thing is talking to other people. It’s been genuinely transformative. It has absolutely, palpably, helped me get better at my job.”

“That’s one of the real benefits and joys of PepTalks – you get to constantly interact with a group of people who are also humble and willing to learn, but also to contribute their knowledge. I think it’s quite unique and special.”
Keryn James
NED and Former CEO, ERM
“PepTalks gives you a readymade community of CEOs who are already dealing with the issues you are dealing with. I always come away from the sessions with new contacts, insights and suggestions which I have put into practice.”
Lee Newman

PepTalks helps leaders to operate more effectively on the private equity playing field.

As a leader, you’ll need to learn the rules to this new playing field whilst also doing an incredibly demanding day job.

An Alix Partners survey in 2017 found that 73% of CEOs don’t survive the lifetime of an investment, with 43% leaving between years two and four.

Why battle through on your own when you can accelerate your development by learning from the best of those who have already played the game?
