SMARTstart CEO Roundtable Program

What is a CEO Roundtable?

CEO Roundtables bring industry CEOs and Presidents together on a monthly basis for an exchange of information, challenges, and insights. Groups include 8 to 15 members from non-competing, growth-oriented companies in a confidential setting to share the challenges and rewards of leadership and how it impacts life at work and home.

How would you like to be part of a forum that helps you:

  • Increased profitability
  • Make better informed decisions
  • Improve your ability to predict trends
  • Sharpen your visionary thinking
  • Enhance your overall personal satisfaction
  • Forecast issues facing your business
