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


Jim Collins is a student and teacher of what makes great companies tick, and a Socratic advisor to leaders in the business and social sectors.  Having invested more than a quarter century in rigorous research, he has authored or coauthored six books that have sold in total more than 10 million copies worldwide. They include Good to Great, the #1 bestseller, which examines why some companies make the leap to superior results, along with its companion work Good to Great and the Social Sectors; the enduring classic Built to Last, which explores how some leaders build companies that remain visionary for generations; How the Mighty Fall, which delves into how once-great companies can self-destruct; and Great by Choice, which is about thriving in chaos—why some do, and others don’t.

His most recent publication is Turning the Flywheel. It explores how leaders can best harness the flywheel effect to build and accelerate momentum.


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
