Richardson Chamber of Commerce issued the following announcement on Feb. 7.
The Chamber continues to focus on fostering local businesses and entrepreneurs, by introducing two new programs to connect local executives in tangible ways – the Peerspectives program, and the Richardson Chamber of Commerce (RCC) Executive Advisory Board program.
The PeerSpectives program was created by the Edward Lowe Foundation, and has been operating for more than 13 years across the U.S. It is conducted by trained facilitators. It is based on the concept that CEOs’ peers have encountered many of the situations they are facing today, and can provide helpful perspective based on these experiences. Using a formal process, participating CEOs can share private information on all business matters for which they seek peer guidance, to help sharpen and inform their decision-making. The program will be limited to a group of eight to 12 CEOs who will meet monthly for one year. Qualified entrepreneur and innovator, Dr. Yoram Solomon, will act as facilitator of the sessions.
The Chamber has also partnered with the Collin Small Business Development Center to create the RCC Executive Advisory Board program. This program is open not only to CEOs, but also to other C-level executives, and will feature group presentations, often augmented by outside subject matter experts, on topics of mutual interest to participants.
The participation fee for Peerspectives is $1,500 for 10 sessions, and the fee for RCC Executive Advisory Board participation is $600 for six sessions. These programs require that participating companies have at least 10 employees, up to a maximum of about 400.
Both programs are currently enrolling the first cohort of participants, and space is limited. Interested companies should contact John Jacobs.
