A safe environment for peers to share wisdom and advice

We run ExecINSIGHT events to connect leaders with world class authors for ideas that make a difference. In normal times, we also run monthly peer groups for leaders in CEO, and Director Forums and support executives with 1-1 coaching. We set up in 2006 and have grown and embraced hundreds of CEOs, Chairmen, MDs, and Directors.

For me, being part of Executive Foundation is about learning from some of the best people in business and sharing and solving each other's problems.

When I arrived I was facing the challenging new role of being a director in a company experiencing massive growth. Executive Foundation has given me genuine learning opportunities that are really engaging and applicable and has helped me transition from being a “do-er" manager to a real leader and somebody who can set a direction for the company.
