highly effective CEO PEER GROUPS that tackle Your Challenges, and challenge your Assumptions

When you are a part of a CEO Collective peer group, you are surrounded by people who truly understand the challenges you are facing and willing to share from their experience. Through the collective power of the network you can make decisions quickly and thoughtfully. 

Some of the tough questions our members bring to the table for feedback include:

  • How do I ensure that I am making the right decisions for the company?

  • How do I know where to invest and where to pull back?

  • Do I have the right business model, processes and organizational structure to effectiveness grow the business?

  • When and how should I successfully address over-due people issues?

  • What is the right sales strategy? M&A strategy? financing strategy?

You get the most honest feedback you are going to get from a group. They have no vested interest in your business. They just want to see you succeed.
— Peter Bransfield, CEO, Rypos



What Sets the Collective Apart?

While there are many factors that make us unique and highly effective, here are the top 5 things that set us apart from the others...

  1. Attendance to meetings is not optional, and preparation is required.

  2. Our 1-1 support sessions provided to prep for meetings.

  3. Our structured methodology and tools refined by input from CEOs over the course of 20 years are proven to drive results.

  4. Our meetings are high-impact, structured with cases and feedback, no guest speakers or open discussions.

  5. Our seasoned Strategic Facilitators include former CEOs, CEO clients, consultants all certified and committed to consistent program quality and driving results.

No matter how experienced a CEO gets, the Raffoni Group offerings always find a way to raise the bar. They clearly understand the challenges of a CEO and what it takes to make one great.
— Jason Maxwell, CEO, MassPay
