CEO Boot Camps
CEO Leadership Boot Camps are private meetings of the best and brightest CEOs from mid-market companies – companies with between $100 million and $3 billion in annual gross receipts. Through a series of candid round-table discussions, participants tackle issues unique to their positions, facilitate a mutual understanding, and create long-term peer relationships. Each event is moderated by a group of top functional experts.
AgendaEach Boot Camp's agenda begins with an opening reception, dinner and discussion on the evening before the main event. This helps CEOs settle into the program and get to know other attendees.
The program continues throughout the next day, during which functional experts lead interactive peer discussions. Each Boot Camp covers major themes critical to the success of CEOs, such as leadership, stewardship, human capital, and communication. Short breaks between discussions give participants a chance to follow up with each other on specific topics.
While the Boot Camp agenda remains the same, the discussions are always different because each group of CEOs takes the discussions where they want them to go.
