Waukesha County Business Alliance launches CEO roundtable program
The Waukesha County Business Alliance announced the launch of Owners, Partners, and Entrepreneurs Network (OPEN), a CEO Forum.
The program’s purpose is to provide business owners a network of non-competing companies and access to education, training and networking under the guidance of a trained facilitator.
OPEN, a CEO Forum, will focus on the improvement of various day-to-day operations within members’ businesses, including human relations, processes, systems and information, sales and marketing.
The program is designed for CEOs or owners of for-profit companies with 10 or more employees. The program is exclusive to members of the Waukesha County Business Alliance. Each group is made up of 8 to 12 professionals, and allows for the exchange of ideas between leaders of companies in a confidential environment.
Regular monthly meetings will be scheduled at a time and location convenient to the group members, and individual groups will be facilitated by an independent professional.
OPEN participants will act as each member’s “board of advisors.” This confidential platform will provide each group member the chance to ask questions about difficult day-to-day issues and get real world solutions from others who have had similar experiences.
“As a participant in an OPEN group, I have had the firsthand experience of the CEO forum – it is excellent and worthwhile,” said Bill Fuchs, president of Total Team Construction LLC. “It gives business owners and CEOs an opportunity to confidentially discuss and brainstorm critical issues that you may not be able to talk to your employees or others about. The confidential nature of the CEO forum is similar to having a private board of directors.”
