council of chiefs

Council of Chiefs is a private and confidential network of high performing CEOs, Head Coaches of elite sporting teams, DGs of major Government organisations and Founders of medium sized businesses. Our aim is to connect great minds, share wisdom, and help true chiefs leave their legacy.

ceo networking like no other

Council of Chiefs is not a make-a-million, scale-up network for want-to-be entrepreneurs. It is not a place for splashing your cash around or demonstrating how clever you are.

Council of Chiefs is fair-dinkum, values-based, inspiring, no-frills excellence. It’s the real deal. Discussing real challenges and finding innovative solutions. Together.

Being part of the Council of Chiefs simply demands that you be your best self. Open, honest, vulnerable, willing to share, and willing to learn.

break the isolation

All great chiefs need a support team away from the hierarchy of their role.

Council of Chiefs is a place that breaks the silence of isolation and helps CEOs and leaders make considered, wise decisions.

stretch your thinking

Even at the top, CEOs and leaders don’t know what they don’t know.

Members share challenges and explore innovative solutions from a cross-section of different businesses and industries.

grow your business

Great chiefs are responsible for their people, their customers, and everything in between.

Council of Chiefs recognises the fundamentals of being a CEO and prioritises commercial growth for all members.

“There are many people who don't appreciate how lonely the role becomes because there's only so many people you can talk to when things aren't going right or when decisions need to be made. It can be a lonely role, it can be a challenging role, but it can also be a really rewarding role if you get the fundamentals right.”
