CEO2CEO Summit

Chief Executive’s CEO2CEO Magazine’s 2005 CEO2CEO Leadership Summit- American Competitiveness:

What chief executives must do to retain their competitive edge.

In view of intensifying global competition, American companies must use technology wisely and innovate aggressively while driving down the costs of operating.  It means winning governmental help in addressing educational, health care and legal and regulatory issues.


More than 50 CEOs will gather to participate in a series of roundtables on the issues that are keeping CEOs up at night.  Each roundtable will be moderated by a senior member of Chief Executive’s editorial staff, and sponsors will be given thought leadership positions at appropriate roundtables.



Roundtable Discussion Topics


Leveraging the Information Technology Infrastructure:

CEOs who build the right teams and instill the right discipline and process can use IT as a competitive weapon rather than regarding it as a costly nuisance

CEOs need to do more than tinker with their margins to get their health care costs under better control.  What are the methods that really work?  Can private health care systems heal itself?

As evidenced by unprecedented turnover, the CEO has never been more embattled.  What are the ways that the smartest CEOs are fighting back? How do they communicate with critically important stakeholders groups?

What are CEOs doing to reform the K-12 system?  CEOs recognize that American schools are not producing the right kinds of skill sets for the jobs of the future.  Here’s what they are doing to change a broken system.


Access To Capital:
