See below to read endorsements from members of the ELO Peer Advisory Group Network.
"Having gone through a year of significant transition with my business I found the 1:1 coaching and mentoring extremely valuable to help navigate my next steps. I have really enjoyed learning and growing with my fellow peer advisory group members and seeing the successful ways they are handling today's business challenges. It’s also amazing to watch fellow ELO members using their business as a tool to give back to their employees, their community and advance the kingdom. I am continually humbled with the size and significance of their giving and the impact they make in the charitable areas they are passionate about."
- Former Owner & Leader, Recycling Technology Company
"I’m very pleased with the learning sessions – the guests are always high-quality presenters. The 1:1 sessions have been beneficial and Rick is a trusted counselor. The networking and group sessions are noteworthy as well."
- Senior Executive, $3 Billion Revenue Company based in the Maritimes
"I am a part of other entrepreneurial groups, however ELO truly puts Christ in the centre of every discussion and covers so many practical business topics that you won’t typically hear from sermons or a home group, and certainly never in a typical secular “business setting.””
- Chairman & CEO, International Property Development & Hotel Group
"I have found the group discussion during the PAG meetings to be incredibly insightful and transformative to both personal and practical aspects of my business and the resulting expression of faith as an entrepreneur!"
- Owner & President, Electrical Contracting Company
"The 1:1 coaching sessions provided within the context of the PAG are a valuable component of the program. As a business leader, it can be difficult to press “pause” and take time for introspection. These sessions both encourage and challenge by guiding personal development, providing accountability, and creating a safe space from which to assess current challenges and strengths within the business."
- Family Owner & Senior Executive, Canada-wide retail business with over 30 locations and 350 staff
"As an entrepreneur, I know firsthand how challenging and isolating the journey can be. That's why I'm so grateful for the ELO Peer Advisory Group program. It has provided me with a supportive community of like-minded individuals who are facing similar challenges. The group meetings, learning sessions, and networking opportunities have been invaluable for connecting with others, learning from their experiences and insights, and even making some great new friends. This program has truly enriched my life as an entrepreneur and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for support and guidance in their business endeavours."
- Former Co-Founder & Leader, Software Company
"The 1:1 sessions have proven to be a valued time of coaching and personal reflection for self-improvement at a senior executive level. Every leader should both be a coach to those coming behind and be coached by someone who has been there ahead of you. As a executive leader, sometimes it is hard to find an appropriate coach, but ELO has proven that they can provide what senior leaders need."
- Owner & Leader, Engineering/Consulting firm
"ELO is a credible and focused program that allows faith based entrepreneurs an avenue to realize they are not alone. While you grow your company, you can be on mission as well. ELO provides a forum for reflection on how to do business the right way, providing practical teaching on business related topics and an incredible peer group of some of Canada's most successful companies. What's not to like?"
- CEO/Owner, Serial Entrepreneur, Vancouver
