C-Circles -- Ongoing C-Level Education Program

Specifically for C-level executives and senior business people, this ongoing event is designed for executive development, networking, and to serve as an advisory board of C-Level peers.

August 17, 2010 (Every third Tuesday)

Members of other small, intimate C-Level and CEO groups have reported that their participation has resulted in average company growth rates double that of competitors.  Current participants in this C-Circle report a 96% satisfaction with their fellow C-Level participants.

These events are distinctly different from anything else we offer. To foster an environment of trust among business peers, participants are hand-selected and limited to only 12 to 14 people.
  • We meet every month with a core group, a few folks cycle through.
  • Each month an executive is selected to serve as the hot seat executive, gaining valuable, intense, advice and recommendations from fellow participants.
  • Modeled on the successful programs of the Wharton Club of Southern California and the Vistage (previously TEC) executive education program.
  • By sharing your experience and knowledge with other senior business people in an intimate setting, by challenging each other, asking probing questions and offering suggestions, you’ll make better decisions, achieve better results, and enhance your performance as an executive and generate better results for your organization.

Participant Criteria:

  • Current CEO, CFO, COO, CMO, CIO or Senior Partner.
  • MBA or BA in Business is required.
  • Selectively include non Wharton alumni.
  • Participants are hand-selected.
