If you’re interested in creating a new Spader 20 Group in one of our existing industries or would like to explore starting the first 20 Group in your industry, please contact us to start the conversation.

Spader 20 Groups can transform your business:

Spader 20 Group members build trusting relationships with non-competing, like-minded peers. Together, they work through challenges and learn best practices that can be applied to their own operations. Each and every member also benefits from a Spader facilitator who has been there as a business owner or manager, detailed and proprietary reports, and hard intelligence on group and industry trends.

  • Gain a support network of business peers solving common challenges to productivity and growth
  • Benefit from a Spader facilitator with knowledge of multiple industries for advice on growth and cross-industry insights
  • Engage in timely discussions on critical issues, such as maintaining margins, industry consolidation, what’s hot and what’s not
  • Compare your monthly financial report to others in your group and industry
  • Utilize Spader’s proprietary forward forecasting analysis to accurately predict your future financial performance

How It Works

The idea is simple. Several times a year, you network with non-competing peers from across the United States and Canada under the guidance of a Spader Business Management group consultant. Then you go home with tactics, information and trends to impact your bottom line.

Most meetings take place near a member-business so the group can visit the host-member’s facility. We match you with non-competing industry peers according to commonalities in sales volume, goals, business profile and personal fit. The opportunity for comparison and learning with peers is the hallmark of Spader 20 Groups. It’s a commitment. It’s totally confidential. And you are challenged and held accountable, which helps you achieve goals and reap tremendous rewards.

Each month, you and fellow members submit your financial information to the group through Spader. In return you get valuable monthly, consolidated financial reports with key financial analysis. Use them to compare your operation to high, low and average trends within your group and industry and to understand where you rank among them. The information is used to solve problems, share ideas and figure out what is and is not working.


At the end of the day, it’s all about performance and profits. Spader 20 Groups help you fine-tune planning and operations to strengthen the bottom line. The monthly exchange of financial information shows you how the most profitable businesses do it. There’s also plenty of informal human exchange here—but we’re not talking fluff. You get concrete analysis, information and critique at each meeting. And that gives you the tools to boost productivity and increase profits.
