Connect Deeply with CEO Peers
"Having similar challenges is comforting, and the way we tackle things and bounce ideas, it was so good to have a peer-to-peer conversation. Our job is lonely, and you can question yourself too much; this group is an excellent way to ground yourself. Two hours were very well spent, and I hope to stay in contact."
- Markus Pfefferer, CEO, TIBIL, India
CEO, AUSTRALIAN INFORMATION INDUSTRY
"I find these conversations very helpful. I am also on the speaking circuit, and one of the topics that keeps coming up is the loneliness of leadership. And that's why I find these opportunities terrific because there are not many people we can go and talk with."
"It’s hard being a CEO, but there’s lots of other CEOs out there and connecting with them through AFN has been magic for me."
“I learned a lot of tactical things today, but an emotional takeaway for me is one i'm not alone. And that’s encouraging and it's really refreshing and invigorating to me to to be surrounded even virtually by people who allow themselves to live a big life, a valuable life. So thanks for all you're doing, and all of you and your efforts and now it's not lost on the world.”
- Jason Madsen, CEO, Ascend Medical
BRIAN REAVES, CEO, FACTRICS
"Particularly in the time of pandemic, it is important to maintain personal interactions
with peers that are limited during this time."
"The most popular theme from the chat was “I would rather have 100 friends than 100 dollars”,
a translation of a Russian quote. Common wisdom can be found across all cultures."
“It is difficult to pinpoint just one takeaway; finally, I understand that I am not alone; CEOs share many issues across the board. Therefore, I am very interested in having a community to share notes, compare strategies, share resources, and more.”
- Dexter Galban, CEO, Alaga Health Inc.
