Drill deep on challenging and important issues!
MRC offers this CEO Forum for executive leaders with a strong emphasis on problem solving and best practices. The Forum is an opportunity to meet with other decision-makers in a confidential setting to share common growth concerns and challenges. This non-competitive peer group also provides a platform for area CEOs to meet and develop action plans and strategies through interactive meetings augmented by expert guest speakers who are recognized authorities. Some sessions are scheduled off site with very successful manufacturing CEOs within the community who agree to meet with and host the group and provide plant tours.
This forum will be limited to 25 CEOs at progressive manufacturing companies and will be moderated by a seasoned facilitator. The entire program is member driven and consists of nine monthly sessions.
The group will convene 3.5 hours per month, nine months a year. We will typically present for an hour on current thinking on a variety of topics, following with a confidential round table discussion. Participants will present their principal challenges and receive unbiased feedback and support. The setting is designed to be safe and “classified,” where CEOs exchange viewpoints, develop answers, solve problems, evaluate new ideas, and share concerns.
