The very best business coaches & mentors.


Vistage Chairs are seasoned business executives and come from a variety of backgrounds and industries. We hand-pick them based on some common and well-proven criteria. They’re great listeners; they’re people-orientated and results driven. Once a month for two hours you’ll get that critical ‘me-time’ through your private one to one with your Chair. Vistage Chairs ask the hard questions, they probe those areas you pretend don’t exist and guide you to find the answer.

They’ll also hold you to account so what you say you are going to do gets done. They are dedicated to improving the effectiveness and enhancing the lives of our members. Vistage invests far more in the training and on-going development of our Chairs that any other executive coaching organisation.
