Capitalizing on one of the greatest business ideas of our time, Steven Abramowitz created CEO Boardroom™ 27 years ago to connect and host the region’s most noteworthy leaders, in the most exclusive and private venues, to enjoy great company, forge invaluable business relationships and personal alliances. CEO Boardroom™ fills a void that many top corporate leaders find: a forum to cultivate, communicate, and align their own individual and organization’s goals with their peers in intimate, enjoyable and private settings that involve candor, camaraderie, great food and wine, and more. In short, these are amazing experiences that CEOs can’t find anywhere else.
CEO Boardroom™ is:
At CEO Boardroom™, we firmly believe that only CEOs can understand the strain, stress, pressure, and relentless pace of running growing businesses. Strained for time, CEOs face countless invitations to professional and social events but limited opportunities to connect with their peers in private, luxurious, intimate settings. How many teaming, growth, or relationship opportunities have been missed because of this? Thankfully, CEO Boardroom™ solves these problems, bringing the business experiences of hundreds of CEOs to bear while giving each member access to new relationships, top speakers, and great minds at truly memorable events.
