Hour-long monthly calls, each featuring an executive who will present to the group on a topic that holds value for all leaders within organizations, followed by time for questions and conversation with the presenter and other audience members.


One hour calls each month. All calls will take place virtually over Zoom.

Video Access

These calls are an opportunity to connect with other executives. We're here to teach and to learn from one another. That means supporting one another after the calls themselves are over.


You'll be provided a copy of any additional documentation that the speaker thinks will benefit you beyond the presentation itself. This may include a copy of their slides, a recommended book list, a written synopsis of their topic, etc.
