2020 Exchange specialises in delivering exclusive, contemporary peer leadership programs designed specifically for CEOs in the 21st century.


Our leadership programs augment a CEO’s leadership ability in the areas of vision, strategy and people. We provide a secure environment where you can interact with like-minded CEOs and thought leaders. Where you can freely ask questions and seek answers that will provide you with a fresh perspective and new insight, enabling you to make better decisions that bring high value outcomes.


The CEO Consortia Program forms the backbone of our leadership development program. Around 12 select Chief Executives meet monthly, led by an independent, world-class chair who will inspire, guide and support you by facilitating ‘must have, game-changing’ conversations.


The CEO Consortia Program is complimented by Across The Table and the 2020 Briefing series; a range of drop-in style events designed to allow leaders to tap into the 2020 brains trust. According to well-known American business leader, Harold Geneen:


“Leadership cannot really be taught. It can only be learned.”


2020 provides the collective wisdom and environment to enable you to continue your personal development.


Our engagement model is highly personalised. You are invited to request a one to one meeting with a member of our Executive Team to explore how 2020 might support you. Feel free to get in touch to arrange a time.


Corporate Social Responsibility


Guided by the vision of inspiring extraordinary leadership in all sectors, and as a mark of our commitment to social impact causes, 2020 provides fee support to CEOs from charity and non government organisations. By being part of the 2020 community, NGOs also have the opportunity to explore the commercial potential as they align with other CEOs with shared values.

"Great leaders listen, synthesise and act. Sure, they’re expert in their fields, and they have great ancillary skills to match that expertise, but - crucially - they need to see the world around them with broader eyes than just their own; and then craft that broader knowledge into actions that yield real progress…"
