The Circles Meeting Experience
CIRCLES IS BEING DEVELOPED TOGETHER WITH
SEVEN MENTORS ARE BETTER THAN ONE

How does a circle work?

8 carefully matched
peers

A circle is a group of 8 peers who are carefully matched to pursue shared objectives, effectively forming a peer mentor group.

Bi-weekly, online video meetings

The circles meetings happen online, for 90 minutes every other week, in our custom built meeting room.

Facilitated, agenda-driven meetings

The meetings are agenda-driven and are led by a Circles trained facilitator, a guide, who eventually fades into the background as the group jells and begins to chart their own course.
A SPACE FOR DEEPER CONVERSATIONS

What are the benefits of joining a circle?

CURRENT CIRCLES MEMBERS

This is what our members say…

Jo Dennis
VP, People & Culture, Omada Health

“Very few places where you can connect with people like that, without the hints of competitiveness or posturing that occur everywhere else.”
Tom Stahl
Chief Operating Officer, WildAid

"I have honest, open conversations every two weeks with a group of friends that I otherwise wouldn't have. Due to the confidentiality provisions, we feel comfortable being open and vulnerable in ways that we might not otherwise."
Philipp Schmidt
Director, Learning Innovation, MIT Media Lab

“Circles provide a very gentle sense of accountability (neither carrot nor stick). I know I won't be judged if I don't complete my goals, but that the others might genuinely be interested to hear how it went. So I want to make sure I have something to report back.”
THE CIRCLES EXPERIENCE

Reimagining what a great meeting is all about

Our goal is to make each and every one of the circles meetings meaningful. To do so we have been developing our own meeting technology and methodology.

Our Video
Room

At the core of Circles is our custom developed video meeting room, built to facilitate deeper conversations. 

Core features include timesaving online agendas for maximised sharing, an automatic timer to foster equal airtime and a random speaking order generator.

Our Meeting Methodology

Our unique meeting methodology has been developed together with our advisors from MIT, Harvard, the Entrepreneurs’ Organization and Young Presidents Organization. 

It has been tested and developed with a view to helping groups go deep to surface and address the really important issues.

Our Guides

The initial Circles meetings are led by a Circles trained facilitator, a guide, who leads from the side.

Guides are there to keep the group on track and help members to focus on the important issues and reap the benefits of the Circles methodology.
