"I've been in the Livonia roundtable since it started in 2007, and I really look forward to those four hours each month. Our group has formed a very strong bond and sense of trust. It`s a stress reliever because I can discuss things that I may not want to talk about with my family or people at work."
"From roundtable discussions, I`ve gotten new ideas about cash flow management, how to better communicate with bankers and leverage assets. Other big takeaways have been on personnel. In the past, I didn`t look ahead and anticipate staffing needs, which resulted in hiring too quickly- and bringing on the wrong candidates. Now I`ve learned to be proactive and be on the lookout for candidates before we become desperate. I`ve also learned how to handle the firing process better and do it with grace and respect. No leader likes firing anyone, but it`s important to prune the garden at times in order for it to grow."
"Another advantage of PeerSpectives, our facilitators keep participants up-to-date on state and federal assistance available to small businesses. As a result, RTI is benefitting from a state grant that provides professional training for senior staff to learn to diversify our product and client base."
-Jerry Singh, president and general manager of RTI Laboratories in Livonia, Michigan
