"For most CEOs stepping into a PE-backed company for the first time is like encountering a whole brave new world..."

Humphrey Cobbold, CEO, Puregym

"I wish I had known some of things PEPTalks teaches you when I first started out. This unique executive network is a brilliant idea that will make a lot of people grateful down the road."

Christian Nellemann, Founder & CEO, XLN

"You get to listen to the war stories of other CEOs and ask questions back. As a new CEO going into your first deal to share these experiences and learn from others is hugely beneficial."

Adam Sullivan, CEO, Baywater Healthcare

How we help CEOs

We provide CEOs with a map to the maze, enabling them to better navigate the private equity playing field and short-circuit the need to learn through their own mistakes.

Our members have access to a ready-made community of likeminded CEOs who all share similar challenges, as well as a group of the most successful CEOs in private equity, who provide peer mentoring.

We call this group our Founding Members and they have run businesses such as DFS, Oasis Dental Care, Pure Gyms, Tilney Group, uSwitch, The Priory Group, XLN, Clarion Events and Quorn.

Each member benefits from a series of bespoke interactions and introductions that will give them the energy, knowledge and network that they need to grow and realise value.
