CEO peer mentoring meetup

CEO peer mentoring meetup

This is an exclusive benefit for Calgary Chamber members and applications are accepted on an ongoing basis, however, spots are limited.

After going to the sessions, I can honestly say it's the best thing I've done for my business.

The Calgary Chamber is committed to providing members with valuable and timely learning opportunities that help grow your business and make it more successful.

  • Are you a business leader struggling with the unique challenges of a fast-growing company, and looking for a high value/low cost way to learn how to run your business more successfully in order to take it to the next level of achievement?
  • Are you encountering decisions that you have never had to face before?  
  • Do you sometimes feel isolated as you have no one to discuss the challenges of growing your business?

As a leader of an organization you may wonder where to turn for help. Our CEO peer mentoring programs may just be the thing you need.

About CEO peer mentoring programs

We know that as a business owner your time is a precious commodity, but we guarantee that this powerful roundtable format is well worth your while.

Utlizing the Edward Lowe Foundation's internationally recognized methodology of peer learning programs, the Calgary Chamber's CEO peer mentoring programs are designed for leaders of second-stage growth-oriented companies.

Each meetup is delivered by a certified facilitator that ensures a balanced discussion. In a trusted and confidential environment, participants gain real-time feedback on sensitive business issues from their peers who are facing, or might have faced a similar issue.

A key element that sets it apart from other roundtable programs is the no advice rule, where participants share experiences rather than give advice, which dramatically changes the dynamics of the discussion.
Possible issue topics could include:

  • Company culture
  • Personnel decisions
  • Customers
  • Direction of the organization
  • Marketing
  • Product development
  • Succession planning
  • Finances
