CEO Groups

The CEO Form program includes the monthly, half-day problem-solving and skill development meeting which is facilitated by two SCORE meeting leaders.

What is the CEO Forum?      

 

The leaders of growing small and mid-sized companies confront the constant challenge of “doing more” with constrained resources in the face of increasing competition. The CEO forum was formed by SCORE Minneapolis to address these strategic issues in a peer group setting. The members of the forums are passionate about improving the performance of their business through shared experience and knowledge. Each CEO Forum group is comprised of 10-12 executives from non-competing businesses who meet monthly as an ongoing team.

The CEO Forum program includes the monthly, half-day problem-solving and skill development meeting which is facilitated by two SCORE meeting leaders. Each Forum is an opportunity for the group to work through their specific business issues using a proven process.

The CEO Forum meetings are facilitated by SCORE meeting leaders who become integral members of each group. The background of these leaders include retired senior executives from major companies as well as entrepreneurs who have launched, bought and sold businesses.
