Peer CEO leadership programs offer the optimal learning dynamic for extraordinary growth. Our programs help leaders refine their intuition through the art of conversation.
We offer a number of event driven programs to CEOs to accelerate growth and be a constant catalyst for change.
The 2020 CEO Consortia Program is the core of the organisation. It is designed to support sustained and mindful leadership growth.
We offer a range of additional programs outside of the CEO Consortia including the Across the Table and 2020 Briefing series.

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.
