What are the benefits to membership with CEO-CF?
24/7 connections to the community
As a member of CEO-CF you have access to support from all members of the community. At any time in the year you can reach out to our member services team with a request for assistance from members or our coaches.
Being a Member of a Native Group
Upon joining CEO-CF you will be placed into a diverse Native Group consisting of approximately 12 members from different nationalities and industries. Each group convenes three times a year for a two-and-a-half day meeting and are available to assist you between meetings when needed.
We provide all members with a well-matched coach who will help prepare and guide you with your challenges and provide support and advice throughout the year.
Presenting Member Challenges
At each of the three member meetings, CEO-CF focuses on working through Member Challenges (MCs), where each CEO presents a pressing strategic problem to the peer group and receives strong, concrete recommendations in return.
The MCs follow a strict format designed to elicit the strongest, most focused advice.
Presenting Member Issues
At a CEO-CF meeting, Members have one-minute in front of the entire CEO-CF community to present a Member issue (MI). This is a direct request to the community. In return, members of the community make brief inquiries and then raise a green card if they think they can offer the presenter help.
Presenting Virtual Member Challenges
We understand that strategic problems can happen at any time of the year, and not just at the time of a CEO-CF Meeting. This is why we also provide Virtual Member Challenges (VMCs) to our members in between member meetings. Our Member Services team will coordinate a group from the CEO-CF community to carry out your Member Challenge virtually.Member Benefits
What members are saying about the forum
The forum is one of the most
enlightening business experiences I
have had for many years, and the
gems of wisdom collected will remain
with me for a quite a long time
It’s not only about sharing business
challenges with your peers but also
about exposing your fragilities, and
minimizing their impact on business
Becoming a member exceeded my
expectations, not only as I received
valuable feedback from the other
members, but also in stepping back I
discovered I had become too narrow
in my approach.
This approach to solving challenges
opens your eyes to the reality that
your situation is not unique, and
dealing with those issues with the
benefit of the reflections of other
CEOs really helps.
The secret sauce…
Our CEO collaboration methodology.
This is our tried and true approach to framing the strategic challenges we face as CEOs. Our format elicits the strong feedback that only seasoned CEOs can give. Our members want to solve executive issues even when they’re not their own. Our method allows them to share their experience with each other while getting straight to the point. Your peers expect you to be honest and direct. Participants learn by giving and receiving concrete recommendations. And we don't let you leave the room without an action plan.Here's a video on how it works.
