IT USED TO BE LONELY AT THE TOP
At every level of a good company employees are surrounded by a support structure of people and advice.
Often though, the primary decision maker – you the CEO, top manager or executive are left to guide your company in isolation.
You as a business leader still need to learn and hone your skills to stay competitive; you need to stay current to make the best, most effective decisions. But where is your support network?
Executive Connect has a unique solution to meet this challenge. We provide safe, supportive, inspirational and highly confidential on line environments for peer to peer mentoring providing experience, insight and opportunities in an exclusive environment.

“Affiliation with CEO Tasmania has had enormous value for me already, after just a couple of sessions.

Dr. Matt Wilson CEO, Myriax Pty Ltd
