CEO Peer Advisory Groups

The changes begin when the meetings end

The CEO Leaders Forum is a peer advisory group of business leaders, owners, and heirs apparent who recognize the value of a confidential, advisory group of like-minded business owners. Group members are guiding companies with revenue ranging from $2mm to $50mm. This unique roundtable is designed for growth minded CEOs, Presidents, and their heirs apparent.

Multiple Perspectives

A peer advisory group gives members access to a sounding board of 10 to a maximum of 14 high-performing CEOs, business owners, and key executives. Peer advisory groups provide caring and unbiased, but honest input on tough questions. A member presenting an issue to be discussed can expect a wide range of alternatives including suggestions on how to implement. Better decisions come from better choices and better choices come from unbiased, experienced input. This is the value of peer advisory groups.

Key Differentiators


Multiple Facilitators

With two highly experienced meeting facilitators, Jay W. Curry and Karl K. Maier, the group brings a deeper perspective to every group member.  Two facilitators create a broader and deeper discussion while processing member issues and bringing out options and alternatives.


Virtual Format Plus

By using a virtual format for the half-day monthly meetings, the group is more geographically diverse and cost-effective. Using the latest tools for managing virtual meetings, the group is able to achieve many of the benefits typically associated with an in-person meeting.


Speaker Workshops

Executive coaching and peer advisory groups have important roles to play in helping leaders make better decisions and live better lives.  Speaker Workshops expose leaders to technology trends, best business practices, changing tax law, etc.  That’s the value of a speaker workshop. 

Meeting Facilitators

With two meeting facilitators, the members receive a greater depth of perspective and content.
