What Makes GBEN Unique?
Our virtual and in-person meetings are member-driven, allowing you to directly influence the discussion.
Uncapped, corporate membership for the entire team and beyond, rather than limiting your use to only a few colleagues.
We pride ourselves on no homework. This is not a working group, and you do not need to dedicate additional time and resources.
Our peer forum and shared resources offer a "gut check" on key decisions, eliminating the time and expense of research and consultation.
No sales pitches: Consultants and sales people are not allowed in the meetings.
- Industry agnostic: different industries provide an array of perspectives during discussions and create opportunities to partner.
