To provide CEOs with a curated network of their peers. This community will also provide leadership training and development for those executives looking to gain knowledge as they continue to grow within their careers, become part of a board, or scale their companies.

Community Personas

  • Exec level – professional development, thought leadership, relationships.

  • CEO SUMMIT/NETWORK – this piece is being defined but will be a platform for CEOs to connect, share best practices, provide advice/input to one another, make connections and mentor/advise one another. We see this as having an in person ½ day component as well as an online component for delivery.
