About Us




CEO Collaborative Forum was launched in 2005 by serial entrepreneur Dave Darsch to connect international CEOs who faced similar challenges, and to give them the opportunity to learn and grow from each other.

The Forum rapidly became Europe’s top platform for business leadership growth. Now run by former CEO-CF member Christian Dupont, the forum community continues to support CEOs in taking their companies to the next level.
