Share ideas, challenges, pitches & problems – the things that keep you up at night


Our sounding board sessions are confidential environments for members who are serious about progress – both personally and in their business. The sessions are an opportunity to share with other people in similar positions to you, the things that keep you awake when your head hits the pillow; money worries, business development, HR issues, client troubles, PR challenges and more.

They’re also an environment where you can privately pitch an idea or presentation you’ve been working on and get honest, critical feedback from people who truly¬†get¬†you.

These sessions can be incredibly liberating and we invite you to join us in a session, as a YENA member. Learn more about memberships here.

How we run Sounding Boards


Maximum 8 people

Any more than this starts to dilute the quality of conversations and ensures the best possible experience for all around the table.

Chatham House Rules

When a meeting, or part thereof, is held under the Chatham House Rule, participants are free to use the information received, but neither the identity nor the affiliation of the speaker(s), nor that of any other participant, may be revealed.

Input & Receive

We ask that all who take part in a Sounding Board both give and receive during the session. We expect people to have talking points they want to discuss but we also expect them to want to help others on their topics of discussion.
