The Chief Executive


Solutions for the most pressing challenges facing business leaders today.

Featuring Jim Collins

November 3-4, 2022

Denver, CO & Online

How are the most effective business leaders getting their teams to innovate, adapt and execute to position their organizations for sustainable success?

Chief Executive’s Leadership Conference is the premier senior leadership conference in the United States for mid-market CEOs and senior executives – offering peer-tested tactics and strategies that will help you and your organization accelerate growth and profitability – no matter the state of the economy.

Take two days to fine-tune your strategic assumptions, future plans and tactical priorities with expert insights on your most immediate leadership challenges, including:

  • Talent recruitment and retention
  • Thriving in hybrid, in-person and remote work environments
  • Succeeding in a slowing economy
  • Navigating inflation
  • and more


As a student and teacher with 30+ years of research on what makes great companies tick, Jim Collins understands what the best-performing leaders have in common: they imagine their company as a work in progress with unlimited potential ahead.  
If that’s you, this is a can’t-miss opportunity to workshop your best ideas with other CEOs, gain outside perspectives that challenge your assumptions and create a plan to put new concepts to work to improve the long-term future of your business. 
During this interactive session, Jim will expose his most coveted ideas, and facilitate small group breakouts for a unique opportunity to address, challenge and refine your ideas with other CEO and senior executives. 


Profound changes are bringing new challenges–and new opportunities–to mid-market companies. During this exclusive event, we’ll help you and your executive team work “on” vs. “in” the business focusing on practical ideas & strategies to protect your core and capture opportunity. Access pragmatic content with tangible solutions to help you:

Upgrade your strategy to beat your competitors and outgrow your market

Lead more effectively–and gain more personal satisfaction

Focus on the right things to increase profitability

Gain new insights into customers’ changing needs to serve them better
