CEO Peer Groups

Accelerating CEO Performance through the highest impact and least time-intensive peer group for results-oriented CEOs and Top Executives across Canada.

Oliver is a certified MacKay Modern Trusted Advisor

ACCELERATING CEO RESULTS: The Challenge The work only gets tougher when you reach the top. The time demands on CEOs are harsh and the job is often isolating. The pace, complexity and constant challenges are a heavy weight to carry. Not surprisingly, the average tenure of today’s CEO is just over 3 years.
