Who we are

Who we are

Your peer group are people with similar dreams, goals and worldviews. They are people who will push you in exchange for being pushed, who will raise the bar and tell you the truth. They’re not in your business, but they’re in your shoes.

Finding a peer group and working with them, intentionally and on a regular schedule, might be the single biggest boost your career can experience.

Why Join a Private Advisory Board Led by Elisa Spain?

We look for interesting people with interesting businesses. Successful business owners and professional managers who want to become more successful.

CEO members have in common a desire to build professionally managed businesses that operate independently.  Key Executive members represent the key leaders who CEOs have entrusted to take them there.

Members are in various phases of this journey  and all share the following core values:

  • Authenticity – Strive to be my authentic self in every part of my life
  • Diversity– Embrace people that are different and think differently from me
  • Lifetime Learner – Focused on personal and professional development
