CEO Consortia Program
The 2020 CEO Consortia Program offers a secure environment where you can freely ask questions and seek fresh perspectives. Ultimately, enabling better decisions with high value outcomes in the areas of vision, strategy and people.
Around 12 select Chief Executives meet monthly, led by an independent, world-class Chair. 2020 Chairs inspire, guide and support you by facilitating the most ‘game-changing’ conversations in your diary every month.
Chief Executives within 2020 Consortia come from a rich, diverse range of industries, both contemporary and traditional. CEOs are carefully matched to a consortium based on personality, acumen, industry and turnover.
We ensure you are seated beside like-minded CEOs who are facing similar challenges, enabling you to glean solutions and gain maximum value in your participation.
Designed for CEOs eligible for a Consortium or those in transit, becoming a Platinum Associate entitles you to guaranteed seats at the Across the Table breakfast series, amongst other learning activities to elevate your leadership and orchestrate connections within the 2020 network. Typically Platinum Associates are leaders from the top 200 companies in Australia.
Designed to immerse CEOs in an exclusive, meaningful conversation, Across the Table is a series of breakfast interviews held in the stunning boardrooms. Facilitators Jenny Brockie and Juanita Phillips, two of Australia’s most respected broadcasters, address a wide range of subjects relevant to the moment, providing insights and wisdom through intimate conversation with some of Australia’s most influential leaders. Guests in the past have included David Murray AO, Ann Sherry AO, John O’Neill AO, Commissioner Andrew Scipione APM and Lindsay Fox AC.
Designed for those eligible for a CEO Consortium, becoming a 2020 Associate entitles you to one seat at three separate 2020 Briefing events. This ‘drop-in’ style participation allows you to tap into the brains trust, whilst orchestrating connections within the 2020 network.
Immersing CEOs in exclusive and meaningful conversations, the 2020 Briefing is a series of breakfast events held in Sydney.

EA Consortia Program
In alignment with our CEO Consortia, 2020 offers a program for Executive Assistants (EAs) as a catalyst to further develop the partnership and outcomes of the executive office. We recognise EAs as emerging leaders and influencers that help guide and support the CEO in the execution of the their vision. At times, the EA can experience loneliness and isolation as the guardian of all things confidential. EAs participating in this program can expect to finesse their soft and hard skills, with a view to leading the leader.
