VACEOs MEMBER BENEFITS:
Our members-only monthly roundtable sessions are a perfect forum to test new ideas and get “unstuck.” This perspective gives members the ability to:
- Move their business forward and in new directions
- Get “unstuck”
- Think differently about their business-broaden their scope
- Solve long-standing problems
- Unburden themselves from the day-to-day problems
- Gain clarity by being able to step away from their business to get new perspective
Our quarterly luncheons help our members grow their business through:
- Advanced learning from top thought leaders, which are unique voices often not heard in this market
- A CEO –only environment that provides a different level of conversation
- Speakers who are also CEOs and various business growth experts
- Networking with Members and qualified prospects
Our Knowledge Network meetings help our members grow their business in a different way. By being a smaller group, usually only about 30 people, Members learn from peers on a specific topic. The Knowledge Network is a facilitated discussion to help with peer learning on a hot or timely topic in a more open ”no speaker” environment.
And our Annual Members-Only CEO Retreat provides the CEO with:
- Intensive deep-dive learning not found elsewhere
- Equal proportions of keynote speakers, mixed with peer-to-peer leaning in breakout sessions on the topic with discussion guides
- Ability to apply their learning immediately to their own situation by giving ideas to and for each other
- Inspiration to take their business to the next level
