Are you interested in a trusted peer-learning environment for CEOs?

CEO PeerLink™ brings together CEOs committed to learning from one another and developing creative and practical solutions to business problems. The group is a useful sounding board that expands your thinking, and helps you grow your business.

We are targeting new member CEOs whose businesses feature:

  • Strong growth potential
  • Growth strategy based on a long-term commitment to people and quality
  • 20 or more employees
  • Development of systems to support continued growth

The groups

Each CEO PeerLink™ group consists of eight to 12 CEOs from diverse businesses. Groups meet from September to June, when participants can recommit to the group for another cycle. Direct competitors are not invited to the same group.

The meetings

Meetings are held in the evenings and usually last three hours. Members take turns hosting meetings, which include a meal and an in-depth company update. Meetings generally focus on problems or challenges raised by members and/or on longer-term development issues relevant to the group. Meetings are facilitated to balance discussion and help members accomplish their goals.

Member responsibilities

Participants much commit to:

  • Strict confidentiality of all discussion
  • Attendance at monthly meetings. More than two unexcused absences in a year will result in a loss of membership
  • Authentic sharing of ideas, triumphs and failures with the group
  • A member fee, approximately $1,500 for each September-June cycle.
  • Host one meeting per cycle, including refreshments and a light meal
