CEOs Club

 ‘The Summit’?

The CEOs Club

The High Profile and Exclusive Group of CEOs of Corporations represents an elite gathering of visionary leaders who convene on a monthly basis to foster leadership development and mentorship. Composed of distinguished individuals at the pinnacle of their respective industries, this assembly brings together CEOs from diverse sectors, creating a platform for invaluable knowledge exchange and collaborative growth. The carefully curated membership offers a rare opportunity for CEOs to connect, inspire, and learn from one another.

During these monthly gatherings, the CEOs engage in dynamic discussions, sharing their experiences, insights, and strategies for navigating the ever-evolving business landscape. The meetings provide a confidential and supportive environment where leaders can explore challenges, seek guidance, and gain fresh perspectives. From exploring cutting-edge technologies to discussing emerging market trends, the group collectively delves into relevant topics to stimulate innovation and drive success in their organizations. The mentorship aspect of the group empowers CEOs to develop their leadership skills, guiding them in making impactful decisions and cultivating effective teams. The High Profile and Exclusive Group of CEOs of Corporations stands as a premier platform that propels executives to new heights of excellence and propels their organizations towards sustainable success.

Why you?

The Summit Club is the leadership development group for CEOs of small and medium-size Corporations. The CEOs have formed a solid group of like-minded professionals who will act as boardroom accountability partners for each other.

With the new changes in the World and many of us finding that we have to adjust our businesses, we want to make sure that we have each other’s back.

Monthly Featured Speakers / Presenters

Every month we have a key topic for discussion which is presented by one of our CEO members and or an external guest. Topics are mainly geared towards learning rather than business promotion.

Lucy Jeffrey is the meeting convenor and agenda coordinator. She picks the topic for discussion based on relevance. A key consideration is the expectation level for the members. Some have been in business for 10-40 years. The topic for discussion must balance between this diverse executive experience. Picking the presenter is based on the topic to be presented rather than any other considerations.

Members are encouraged to send topics to Lucy Jeffrey for scheduling. Planning, we have a line up of presenters 6 months ahead as below. However, if a key external guest becomes available, we may disrupt the internal schedule to accommodate this guest.

Lucy Jeffrey Founder

CEO and Chief Visionary Officer The Entrepreneur Nation®

I started The Entrepreneur Nation® in 2018 after evaluating the offerings of many networking groups. I came to the conclusion that for businesses to grow, an outside-the-box growth strategy was necessary. The strategy was to offer much more support than just networking. The growth we have witnessed clearly shows that entrepreneurs and small business owners need much more than networking. They need mentorship and role models, they need a one-stop-shop resource centre for what they need to grow their businesses. They need training to understand emerging business growth trends. The CEOs Club members play a great role while growing their own businesses in the process.

I’m appearing on this page simply as a cordinator for the agenda and presentations. Would you like to present or to join the CEOs Club?
