2023 Peer Mastermind Program
The Bow Valley Chamber of Commerce (BVCC) has partnered with Town of Canmore Economic Development, to provide the 2023 Peer Mastermind Program. This program is a working group where local entrepreneurs discuss business, life, and balancing the two in an organized way with like-minded individuals. The group will offer a combination of brainstorming, education, peer accountability, and support in a group setting to sharpen business and personal skills. The Peer Mastermind Program helps local entrepreneurs build success. Members of the program challenge each other to set strong goals, and more importantly, to accomplish them.
The Peer Mastermind Program's process is to create a goal first and design a plan to achieve it. The program helps with creative ideas and wise decisions-making. Then, as members begin to implement their plans, they bring both success stories and problems to the group. Success stories are celebrated, and problems are solved through peer brainstorming and collective, creative thinking.
We are excited to welcome local facilitator Michelle Gurney from Shift-Consulting. Peer Mastermind Program facilitators start and run the groups with help from the BVCC Board of Directors & Executive Director, and our partner the Town of Canmore Economic Development. As facilitators we help the group to dive deeply into discussions, and work with members to create success — as each member defines it.
The Peer Mastermind Program is formatted into 15-minute chunks to promote learning and problem-solving. A short article will be circulated at the end of each session as "homework" to prepare and set a theme for every session. Articles will be picked depending on conversations and themes developed that are relevant to the group.
Peer Mastermind sessions will be consistently held on the first Wednesday of every month from 7:30-9:00am except the first session, it will be slightly later in April 2023. The location of Peer Mastermind is confirmed to run in Canmore at CanMore Together. Sessions will take place in person.
Space is limited for the Peer Mastermind Program. The program is designed to support everyone in the group and to introduce local entrepreneurs to each other. In order to benefit from this program, successful applicants will need to be removed from their comfort zone. They must be willing to make new connections and to assist their peers. This program is an excellent professional development and networking opportunity!
