Austin CEO Seminar Begins April 1

The annual eight-week CEO Seminar I lead begins April 1. If you are a CEO with more than 25 employees, consider joining us. The time commitment is minimal – every Friday during lunch – but the payoff can be big. Our focus is “Building a World Class Company: A CEO’s Guide to Improving Performance.” Sponsored by the Rice Alliance Austin Chapter and the Austin Technology Council, the CEO class is geared not towards start-up CEOs but those with growing businesses who are looking for the tools to maximize value and increase company performance.

CEO Seminar

If you qualify for this invitation-only seminar, you can sit in on the first class for free before registering for the full series. During the first session, everyone will receive a signed copy of my book “The CEO Tightrope.” The agenda closely follows the format of the book, which is organized around the responsibilities of a CEO.

Some testimonials about the CEO Seminar:

Denver Fredenberg, CEO of Hyperware: “Joel Trammell’s CEO Seminar is a must, especially for any first-time CEO’s. You will learn what to expect as a CEO and the ins and outs of building a powerful team through Joel’s real life experience and candid feedback. You will also hear from and network with some of the more successful executive leaders in Austin. I pull from this experience with every challenge I face….especially the ones I never expected. Go do this!”

Chuck Gordon, CEO of SpareFoot: “CEO Summer Camp was a great experience because it gives you a chance to step back from your day-to-day and think strategically with the help of Joel Trammell. I learned tactics that I now put into action every day.”

Melanie Kalemba, former CEO of Movero Technology: “The Rice CEO Seminar was not only insightful and thought provoking on leadership styles and successful business constructs it afforded a unique opportunity to interact with my peers across a variety of companies. I learned lessons I still refer to today in managing people and the culture of an organization.”

Chad Neely, CEO of Wenzel Spine: “The CEO Summer Camp is an excellent opportunity to learn from other CEO’s experiences and meet and share experiences with other CEO’s in Austin.”
