participates in Exit Planning Exchange (XPX) panel discussion
WESTPORT, MA, ISSUED OCTOBER 4, 2012…Westport, MA resident Bill Reed, Chair with Vistage, the global organization which pioneered the concept of peer-to-peer CEO groups, was a panelist in a recent forum held at Babson College sponsored by the Exit Planning Exchange (XPX).
The September 27th forum entitled “The Power of Peer Groups to Support Growth and Change” brought together a panel of five CEOs and peer group facilitators to address the many benefits of peer groups. The lively discussion underscored how the advice and support received by peer groups can be critical to the success of business owners and CEOs.
“It was a privilege to participate in this engaging and informative roundtable and speak to the many advantages of the peer group experience,”
Vistage is the oldest and most experienced of the peer-to-peer CEO groups, dating back to 1957. There are 16,000 members worldwide, in 15 countries. Vistage CEO Peer Group #3339, facilitated by Bill Reed, was launched in 2006. The group, which meets monthly, offers leaders the chance to step back from their daily business, bring their most important business and life challenges and opportunities to their leadership peers, and in a totally safe and confidential environment hold each other accountable for creating the business and life of their own design. Benefits of Vistage membership include "advisory board" peer group meetings, private 1-to-1 mentoring sessions, expert speaker workshops and a global members-only online network, providing multiple opportunities for busy executives to become better leaders, make better decisions and achieve better results.
