Catlin & Cookman host quarterly meetings called High-Growth CEO Forum. At these meetings, the same group of 6-8 CEOs gathers each quarter in a peer-advisory format to discuss their most pressing challenges. The forums serve as a confidential space to share problems and opportunities that each business is facing and to give and receive honest, invaluable feedback.
The meetings are expert-led and use proven proprietary frameworks and processes, books, and the insights recollected of past forums that have run since 1999. The CEOs are grouped according to the stage of growth of their company, to follow the "High-Growth" process that has helped hundreds of companies to scale.
As a member, you get access to proven frameworks and processes to grow as an executive and scale your company to dominate the industry.
Some of the frameworks are: Building the Profit Spiral® – Planning for Growth™, Building the Executive Team as Leaders of Growth™, Predictable Stages of Corporate Growth™ and High-Growth CEO Performance Evaluators™.
"The format is very structured, you come to each forum with a particular challenge you put in front of all the other CEOs, and you come with your proposed solutions and is really open-game in terms of feedback: honest, brutal feedback or very supportive feedback, my company has gone through a fundamental transition of moving from a B2B business to a consumer-driven business, and being part of the forum I think made that transition much smoother and much easier." -Meredith Flynn-Ripley.
