Reach your potential

Sue Porto Kevin Wiltshire 800 1 - ExecFORUM

Hear from world class speakers in the morning in an interactive session.

Share your challenges and opportunities in your Sounding Board after lunch. It’s your safe place to share your challenges, test presentations or your strategy, share your learning, or brainstorm ideas. It’s your board you could never afford. You benefit from the wisdom and advice of members. They bring you experience, perspective and clarity. And you get valuable feedback on the challenges you might not otherwise explore robustly.

And we will hold you to account to see through innovations and the decisions you make. We’re close and equally invested in your success. Members call this their “secret weapon”.

We vote on who joins us to ensure you get the quality of input you deserve.

It’s no wonder you reach your potential with us.

We meet monthly at Calcot Manor

Join us for coffee at 8:30 am. We start at 9:00 am when we hear from a speaker, break for lunch at 12:30, then hold a Sounding Board till 5:00 pm. We often stay for follow-up chats, perhaps over a drink.


The annual recess over three days and two nights offers the unique opportunity to reflect and plan around your personal life. The recess brings you perspective, a refreshing look at your whole life and clarifies for you where your priorities lie as a leader. It includes time to reflect, connect and course correct. Peer to peer coaching and feedback all play their part in the recess.

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. I've since been promoted to be managing director.
