“I enjoy the discussions and the executives I meet and get to know and frankly go out of my way to attend. I like the format of exchanging information and sharing best practices. Today’s session on risk management “saved me” from making a big mistake which I was not aware of. I would encourage CEO’s and Senior Executives to attend.”- John Maydonovitch, President & CEO - MCE, Inc.
“I attended a session on board governance which I found enlightening. The speakers were a mix of VC and CEO’s with real world Board experience in start ups, large organizations and not for profits. The questions from the attendees helped drive a very high value two hour experience answering many current and future questions about governance strategies for success and potholes to avoid.”- Gene Tange, CEO - PearlHPS Inc.
“ACG Silicon Valley provides many unique forums for C-level executives to exchange information and hear divergent points of a view. At the apex of these forums are the C-Circle meetings that couple forward looking topics and expert speakers with an
audience of C-level executives from the Valley. The C-Circle meetings are the rare and invaluable opportunity that take a C-level executive on a consistent professional introspective ride. Addressing a spectrum of relevant business issues and evocative subjects that impact companies in an ever changing and dynamic marketplace. It’s the best combination of peer learning and networking I have had the good fortune to be a part of.”
