The Supper Club is a membership community of entrepreneurial founders and CEOs of high-growth businesses. Since 2003 it has enabled members to scale their businesses through peer learning, facilitated networking and access to subject matter experts and inspirational speakers.

The Supper Club membership provides access to the collective experience, knowledge and support of its Founder community. This peer to peer insight enables Founders to make timely and informed decisions and overcome challenges faster.

During 2020 The Supper Club evolved its programme significantly with a new digital component, allowing members to access instantly the experience, knowledge and support of the entire Supper Club membership through the discussion taking place on the digital platform.

Technical experts run both the digital and in-person events across a range of formats including masterclasses, workshops, deep dives and roundtables all designed to accelerate scaleup growth using approaches that have proved successful in previous years.

The digital platform enabled accelerated knowledge-sharing on key issues affecting all scaleups during the critical times of Covid-19; expert-led discussion events helped members make more informed decisions.  Feedback has been positive with members saying that access to the knowledge base and insight was crucial in helping them navigate the exceptional challenges of the pandemic.

In the past year the Club has helped over 800 event attendees.
