Most business leaders would agree that non-executive directors can enhance a company’s performance and offer truly valuable insight on multiple levels. Even better is having access to that kind of experience and leadership but on a much bigger scale. Imagine having 1,000s of chief executives and Industry experts on hand to workshop real-world business and personal issues as they arise. That’s what we offer within our Vistage Groups.
