CEO Groups

New CEO Groups forming now!

Why are CEO groups one of the Enterprise Center’s most popular programs?

Simply put, it can be lonely being a business owner. 

Our CEO groups are confidential, peer group environments that are professionally facilitated where business owners can discuss their business challenges, receive feedback and identify solutions to grow their business.

Learn which CEO Group Category  is right for you.
  • Solopreneur CEO Group:  
    Even though it’s just you – it doesn’t mean you have to go it alone.
  • Established CEO Group:  
    Your business is growing, you have employees, lots of things need to happen…..surround yourself with like minded people who can help you focus on solutions.
  • Million Dollar CEO Group: 
    Things change at this level.  Bigger revenue, bigger organization and bigger opportunities.  Be part of a group of big thinkers.

Why Should You Join a CEO Group?
You should join a CEO Group because you have business issues to discuss and need a place where you can talk in confidence, put your issues on the table, and listen to how other business owners have managed the same issues. In addition, it is beneficial to you and your business to have a group of business peers that will support you and often become long-term relationships.

How does a CEO group work?
CEO Groups are made up of 8 to 10 business owners/CEOs and a professional facilitator.  The Group meets once a month for three hours over the course of a year.  At the first meeting the Group Members decide when they will meet, typically choosing a breakfast meeting that runs from 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.  The professional facilitator manages the conversation and ensures that everyone gets the opportunity to put their concerns on the table and contribute to the discussion. These meetings are private, confidential and enormously beneficial.  These meetings help you solve problems and take action to manage and overcome your ongoing business issues.

What is the annual cost?
Solopreneur CEO Group:  $350.00
Established CEO Group:    $650.00
Million Dollar CEO Group: $850.00
