Business leaders share their experience

Hear from a network of influential leaders across multiple industries about the value they've received from the Gartner Peer Connect Community.

“Gartner Peer Connect is an excellent opportunity to meet other procurement practitioners and learn from each other. I regularly post questions about procurement topics I am working on, and solicit input and feedback. The community is very responsive, and shares their perspectives and their templates. It is the perfect addition to the research-based information Gartner experts provide as part of my subscription.”

Sabine Bieschke
Director, Procurement

“I truly enjoy the community. It is a very good resource to have alongside Gartner publications themselves, also, because it covers some topics that my account doesn’t have access to. I am also very positive about it because it does not have vendors or other providers as part of the community, so we can be very open and honest in communication toward our peers. The community is also more than just the forums. I have regular calls with a few peers that I met over Gartner Peer Connect to discuss events in the world — so to speak — and the impact they have on the organizations.”

Sven Vermeulen
Enterprise Architect

“The more ideas and experience you share, the more you’ll receive. Even if you can only spare 15 minutes a week, it’s still great value. I find Gartner Peer Connect (to be) a great way to benchmark and gather ideas. It’s been particularly helpful during the pandemic, when we often don’t have as much time to think or reflect as we’d like, but still want to converse and sense-check our thinking with others in the profession.”

Rachel Tolhurst
Head of Corporate Communications

“I have been using Gartner Peer Connect for almost a year, and only wish I had started doing so sooner! I have not come across any other industry platform that provides such an enriching and confidential environment for professionals to exchange thoughts/ideas on a multitude of topics. I consider this a very important source for myself to gather insights from industry peers and expand my professional network with like-minded individuals. I am particularly impressed by the team of community managers that 24/7 oversee the breadth and depth of topics being discussed across its multiple forums.”
