The Excellence Programme

The expectation placed on management teams to deliver accelerated returns is a bit like asking a team of novice climbers to ascend a challenging peak without training, equipment or a route to the summit. The PepTalks Excellence Programme imparts the skills and knowledge required to navigate this journey successfully.


About The Programme

The PepTalks Excellence Programme provides teams with:

  • A full and accelerated understanding of the part they must play in delivering the investment thesis
  • Tools and techniques to improve how they lead and deliver value creation
  • A readymade, high quality, peer network of leaders undertaking the same challenge
  • Exposure to some of the most experienced private equity backed CEOs in the UK

The programme is delivered in Cohorts (4-5 teams, groups of 10-20 people) and includes 4 full day workshops across 4 months, which cover:

  • The mechanics of private equity funding
  • Leadership, communication and decision making best practice
  • Value creation methodologies
  • Exit preparation and execution.

At the end of each module we invite one of our Honorary Members to talk to the Cohort about their real world experiences of that particular subject.

Graduates of the programme are equipped with the skills to start thinking like shareholders, with an embedded understanding of value creation that allows for greater alignment with the Board and more impactful leadership contributions
