The only place in the U.S. where you can join an intimate group of 16 to 30 presidents and CEOs and be personally briefed each month on the latest leadership thinking by a different nationally renowned and published thought-leader and then participate in a facilitated deep-dive discussion with your peers and the guest thought-leader, where you will gain new ideas and practical solutions to the real-world leadership challenges that you and your peer chief executives are currently facing.
Limited to professional chief executives—all participants must meet the Guild’s Membership Qualifications and agree to follow the Membership Principles. All attendees come with a desire to learn, contribute to the roundtable discussion and hone their leadership skills.
To attend CEOx as a guest, you must first receive an invitation. If you would like an invitation, please contact us. Seating is limited, so you must register online and reserve a seat prior to the date of the CEOx. You may attend up to two meetings as a guest.
CEOx events in Portland are usually held on the second Friday of the month. Doors open at 7:00am. Please plan to arrive before 7:20am. A generous breakfast buffet is provided. The program begins promptly at 7:30am and adjourns at 9:50am. Meetings are typically held at the Multnomah Athletic Club (the MAC) in Portland, Oregon.
The high-value, tightly-packed 180 minute program includes a 45-minute briefing by our guest thought leader, followed by a 60-minute facilitated deep-dive conversation with your peers focused on the meeting topic and how it applies to the real-world leadership challenges that matter most to you and your peers.
