About Us

Good business leaders, like you, often feel very alone.

Running a business is tough. Key decision making, company direction, clarity of strategy, personal development; it’s a huge responsibility and it’s entirely yours. Little wonder you’re sometimes sleepless in the small hours or struggling to answer those really big questions. “What am I doing?”, “Am I the right person for the job?”, “Do I know all that I need to?”.

Who can you turn to for totally impartial advice?

Our members know how you feel. They’ve faced these questions many times before and done something about it. They’ve joined The Academy for Chief Executives. And, through peer group learning, practical experts, a network of successful business leaders and expert coaching, they are guided on a journey to greater fulfilment; they develop and grow and are inspired to be the best.

The Academy creates great business leaders who learn and are inspired from each other.


The Academy for Chief Executives is a leading provider of Experiential Business Learning. It inspires its members to learn from each other, to creatively solve both business and personal issues and ultimately to become great business leaders.

We have found that companies throughout the World face the same issues and opportunities every day. By sharing these common issues, our members are able to provide fresh perspectives and offer new insights to the way they work. There are no hidden agendas; fellow members have no vested interest in each other’s businesses – but all share the wish to help each succeed.


Why Join?

There are many shared benefits of membership and indeed, many very individual ones.

Our members frequently cite the following for why they joined, and why over 80% of them renew their membership every year:

  • They felt isolated in the top job
  • They needed people to talk to without any vested interest in their business
  • They needed to refuel and replenish their own energy and desire to grow
  • They needed a supportive but challenging environment to explore new ideas without feeling exposed
  • They needed first-hand access to practical models and concrete examples of how others deal with similar dilemmas
  • They needed more rigour in tracking business performance
  • They needed to raise their aspirations about what they can have, what they can do, and crucially, who they can be.

In essence, our members join because they want to be inspired to lead.
