Annual Austin CEO Class Starts March 31

CEO Class

CEO class sponsored by the Rice Alliance Austin Chapter and the Austin Technology Council

If you’ve got time for lunch, you’ve got time for this CEO class! Calling all Austin-based CEOs of companies with more than 20 employees, who believe it’s important to improve your skills: Consider joining us for this eight-week educational workshop on building a world-class company. The 2017 CEO class will begin March 31 in Austin and run every Friday during lunch from 11:30 a.m.-1:00 p.m. through May 19. 

Now in its seventh year, this series is designed for the CEO of a successful, growing business who is looking for the tools to maximize value and increase company performance. This is not a startup CEO class but a chance to learn from and network with other accomplished CEOs. Local CEOs who have taken the seminar in past years include Denver Fredenberg of Hyperware, Chuck Gordon of SpareFoot, Melanie Kalemba, former CEO of Movero Technology, and Chad Neely of Wenzel Spine.

This is my sixth year leading the course, and the sessions will be based on the main responsibilities of the CEO role as I outlined in my book, “The CEO Tightrope.” It’s very interactive with lecture and discussion mixed together.

Event Agenda:

Session 1. Intro Session, The Job of a CEO, and Introduction to Khorus  (March 31)

Session 2. Own the Vision  (April 7)

Session 3. Right People on the Bus  (April 14)

Session 4. Providing the Right Resources  (April 21)

Session 5. Build the Culture  (April 28)

Session 6. Make Good Decisions  (May 5)

Session 7. Deliver Performance  (May 12)

Session 8. Stories from the Journey and How to Improve as CEO  (May 19)

ATCSponsored by the Rice Alliance Austin Chapter and the Austin Technology Council, the CEO class is invitation-only and the size will be limited. Each session will include a provided lunch. You will have the opportunity to try out the first class before registering for the entire series. During the first session you will receive a signed copy of “The CEO Tightrope.”
