A complete understanding of private equity and their financial mechanics, including what drives their decision making and how to influence them.

Preparing yourself to lead, improving resilience, decision making ability and communication. Coaching on how to develop a high performance culture.
The expectation placed on management teams to deliver accelerated returns is akin to asking a team of walkers to ascend a challenging mountain, something they have never done before, without a map or equipment in sight.
The PEPTalks Excellence Programme is the UK’s only leadership development course dedicated to supporting private equity backed management teams in achieving this mission.
The programme includes 4 physical workshops and multiple digital seminars which cover 4 key themes: The mechanics of the private equity model, leadership best practice and resilience, value creation methodologies and preparing for the exit process.
Graduates of the programme are equipped with the skills, tools and networks required to successfully reach the private equity summit. On graduating from the programme, management teams will be invited to become PEPTalks Members and join a peer group which will meet on a regular basis through a separate series of dinners, breakfasts and larger networking events.
Four physical workshops and multiple digital seminars over 4 months
Multiple management teams from different sectors on each programme
Programme attendees are paired with a member of another Management team. They work together on exercises during the workshops and on homework between workshops.
Delivered by experienced independent facilitators
