Transformative CEO Summit


The CEO Forum Group Presents
“The Transformative CEO Quarterly Summit: 4th and Goals”
September 21, 2021, 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. EST

The only certainty right now for CEOs is that we are still in a fog of uncertainty … Are we emerging from the pandemic or not? What will the workforce of the future look like? How will supply chains impact business? How might ESG transform business? September is a unique snapshot in time for CEOs to develop strategies to drive business forward. Like in sports, there will be winners and losers — the purpose of this Summit is to help CEO Participants gain clarity and perspective to achieve goals for business, the economy, and society.

Participants: 20 Transformative CEOs (By Invitation Only)


“A Transformative CEO creates new value that reinvigorates a company, reinvents an industry, or reboots society.”
