Earlier this year, the Geehan Group team gathered 45 top B2B C-suite executives to participate in the 2011 B2B Executive Summit, Navigating Growth and Transformation. The main objective for this highly interactive Summit was to share best practices from leading industry thinkers and practitioners while providing peer-to-peer networking. We purposely kept this event small so CXOs could talk directly with the speakers and with each other. Our event highlighted two best-selling authors influential to leadership and growth: Peter Luongo, The 10 Truths about Leadership and David Thomson, Blueprint to a Billion.
“When you can get executives of the quality you had from such a variety of industries who are working on really big and important things for their own companies to be that attentive for two days, talking about issues facing their business, you must have really, really rich content. You did it and created a dynamic environment where people have stayed in touch. That’s rare.”
- Joe Morgan, CEO Standard Register
“This far surpassed my expectations. From the quality of attendees, to the value of the presentations, to the opportunities to interact, it was all superb.”
- Jeff Tinker, SVP Wells Fargo
“It was the best investment of my time I've ever made in a business conference as a CEO. The content was exactly what I needed to take my skills as CEO to the next level. There was great collaborative learning and networking opportunities.”
- Margie Traylor, CEO Sitewire
“Rarely do you find an approachable business environment that invigorates your social senses with intriguing conversations, collaborative exchange of inventive ideas, fascinating speakers with applicable war stories, and the urge to network well beyond the two days.”
- Greg Jorgensen, CMO Verisign
What I relished most about this experience was that everyone was completely engaged throughout the entire 2 days and everyone was given a chance to contribute. The level of interaction, sharing of experiences and openness was unmatched by any event I’ve attended. Checkout the highlight video of the event: click here.
The social elements were just that, social…getting to know each other as people, smiling, laughing and even riding motorized scooters. When everyone departed it was as if we had known each other for years. I can’t wait to gather my new friends again soon at the next Summit!
