When you join Guild and complete your profile the next step is to start making connections and building your network. If you've accepted an invitation from a colleague then you've already got a head start. However there are many discoverable Guild groups that you can apply to join - we've picked out a few here that should have something to offer most members.
✍Why join a Guild group?
- make new connections and widen your professional network
- learn from the conversations of peers and experts
- hear about opportunities (events, jobs, news, communities)
We hope you'll find something that fits with one of your professional interests below - if not, you could consider creating your own community.
🍃 Delivering Sustainability in your Business
"Being a good human being is good business" - if you need practical help with your business sustainability efforts, this group is for you. You'll find collaborative peer support, knowledge sharing and expert contributions, with host Catherine Weetman.
🤗 Building Inclusive Cultures
Get advice and guidance from both your peers and expert host Kevin Withane, a senior lawyer and ethics and compliance executive. This is a safe place for all to learn and share experience and ideas on diversity, equity, and inclusion.
☕ Future of Work: Reimagining Business
The world of work has changed dramatically, with digital adoption, international and remote workforces, and (rightly) more awareness of work-life balance. As group host Mike Weston says: "We are the designers of our future, we all have the power to shape what it looks like."
💸 Crowdfunding Academy
Whether you're currently crowdfunding or you're a curious or potential entrepreneur, Crowdfunding Academy is there to help. Share your experience and pick up tips from experts (including host Jamie Harford) and peers on the process, pitfalls and potential of crowdfunding.
💻 CREO (Corona Response for Event Organisers)
Peer support for event organisers learning to run virtual and hybrid events. Share experiences, recommended suppliers and useful contacts with others in the industry, ask for tips or support your peers and grow your network.
🦉 NED & Board Advisor Network
If you want to make the most of your own expertise by moving in to mentoring, coaching, consulting, and other board-level roles, this group is for you. Seasoned technology CEO, engineer and former COO of Google Europe Ben Legg has assembled a group of 400+ members sharing advice and opportunities.
