Peer Groups


What we do…

Evolve delivers regular peer groups to enable business owners, directors and their leaders to share and receive advice and support in a confidential and proactive environment.

We support individuals across Dorset and Solent regions to help them develop, both in business and personally.

Our ethos is practical, and uses Evolve’s exclusive methodology to create results.


Why we do it…

  • Defining your purpose
  • Your entrepreneurial journey
  • Business planning
  • Strategy
  • Communication
  • Recruitment
  • Stress
  • Resilience
  • Strategic alliances & relationships


There are over 30 topics covered in the Evolve coaching and development programme.

What is a peer group?

It’s a group of owners, directors and senior leaders with their own specific business challenges. The group raises questions and explores solutions in a confidential, open and trusted environment.

This depends on which cohort you join.

For example, our Bournemouth and Poole groups meet at Evolve in Ashley Cross, Poole.

Address – 8a Parr Street, Poole, BH14 0JY

All of our peer groups are made up of business leaders who are local to each other from non-competing businesses. All our members want to grow their business whilst also continuing to focus on their personal life.

We have two options depending on the level of support you would like to access.

Our ‘Peer Group Plus’ costs £295 + VAT per month

Our ‘Peer Group Classic’ costs £95 + VAT per month
