— Results That Matter —
Despite having every second of my life booked, I took a big chance and joined the Chief Executives Guild. Then I was able to successfully implement innovative strategic changes and exceed revenue expectations thanks to the ideas and advice I received from the members of my CEO Advisory Board, which included the chief executives of Dave’s Killer Breads, LEDlenser, Biamp Systems, and other midmarket companies. This is one of several reasons why I have found the Chief Executives Guild so valuable and strongly recommend it to other CEOs.
—Wendy Collie, CEO, New Seasons Markets
& former SVP & GM of Starbucks
This organization pulls together some of the finest chief executives into engaging and provocative forums. The caliber of both the members and meetings is impressive. Personally, when I leave these meetings I am recharged and refreshed. This is only possible because of the leadership's deep passion for connecting the latent needs of chief executives with the latest ideas, techniques, and solutions.

The Chief Executives Guild has continually provided exceptional value for the time and money invested. My CEO Advisory Board knowledge, ideas and advice has increased my leadership competence in so many areas and keeps me focused on the big picture. Having peers to go for perspective and advice when tackling the tough issues I face as the top decision maker has been invaluable.
