“I wish I learned sooner in my career how a CEO peer group could provide an opportunity to share with, learn from, and collaborate with other like-minded executives.
CEO Global Network has provided me this forum and has exposed me to a diverse range of experiences from other CEOs. I was surprised at how relevant the issues of a CEO in a different industry can be to my business. My group gives me the opportunity to present individual challenges and dilemmas to other executives who can provide unique and fresh perspectives and gives me a chance to discuss strategy, vision, and the big picture for my business. I have experienced early on that honest input from multiple sources in my CEO peer group helps me see a more accurate portrait of my industry and the market as a whole than is possible from working within my individual business. I am a true believer that CEO peer groups and forums are an excellent outlet for all CEOs to share and learn. With a diverse range of perspectives, a chance to step back and see the big picture, and a climate of honesty and accountability, you can utilize these groups to take your organization and professional career to the next level. That is my plan!”

“Why am I a proud Member of CEO Global Network? For me, the most important reasons are accountability, personal and professional growth, support and advice. Whether it is the confidential mutual sharing of key indicators with the Group, or receiving advice on strategic or tactical issues, or learning from a world-class presenter; the monthly meetings are not to be missed. And the monthly one-to-one with the Group Leader provides the extra confidential accountability and support that every CEO needs. Participation in CEO Global Network is both a challenge and a breath of fresh air.”

“The challenge of running a business in today’s environment is not something that my B-school education had fully prepared me for. Nor is it enough to rely on good old common sense. This is where CEO Global Network really helps me. The benefits of having a group of fellow CEOs around the table or on the phone when you need them, combined with the mentorship of our CEO Group Leader has been crucial to the success of my organization. The perspectives gained, the constant learning, and the way in which we hold each other accountable has helped my company achieve successive years of record sales and income. I have definitely become a better leader and my team has improved along with me. Plus, we have a little fun along the way, all of which helps me keep my business and personal challenges in the proper perspective.”

“At CEO Global Network I have the privilege to share my personal and business issues with 15 exceptional business leaders that challenge my thoughts and guide my decisions, which has proven to be invaluable for my company and myself. Interaction with this trusted group of people with diverse backgrounds and experiences along with my monthly two hour session with my CEO Group Leader provides me with terrific insight that has enabled me to excel.“

“It took me nearly six months to decide if I wanted to be a member of a group of CEOs that would potentially help me to achieve my goals more efficiently. I struggled with the concept that other CEOs would take an interest in me and my company and provide constructive criticism with the sole purpose of helping me continue to be a better leader.
Having now been a Member for over three years, I can definitively say that I only wish I had joined earlier. The level of learning, commitment, accountability and unbiased clarity and feedback received as part of CEO Global Network has enabled me to achieve my goals more efficiently and accomplish more, while maintaining a better work/life balance. My CEO Group has assisted in enabling me to weather some very critical storms that I hadn’t seen coming nor was prepared for, or equipped to deal with.
It is due to the support of my Group, the hands-on learning I have experienced, and the ability to tap into other business leaders from different backgrounds and experiences, that I have, and continue to achieve both my professional and personal goals.”
“As a Member of CEO Global Network, I am exposed to a “brain trust” beyond that of myself and my management team alone. Because of this, I am able to look at challenges from multiple angles that would likely not have been considered prior to being a Member. My Group meetings, along with my one-to-one sessions with my Group Leader enable me to be efficient with my time and energy, identifying true causes of issues that need to be addressed.
CEO Global Network also supports my personal philosophy of being a “lifelong learner”. I leave every session with valuable learning experiences that are both tactical and strategic. These lessons are typically clear and concise, giving me specifics that can be incorporated into my business and personal life immediately.
CEO Global Network understands that success is defined differently by each individual and this community takes the time to understand what my definition is, and helps me to achieve that goal.”
