Once a month, a group of established CEOs, called Vistage 29, come together to brainstorm and help improve each other’s businesses. Their 8-hour monthly recurring meetings involve sharing their successes, failures, and learning experiences as CEO’s.
Each meeting includes a guest speaker that focuses on a specific topic proposed by the Vistage group members. The speaker’s topic is on a certain industry challenge that’s being endured at that point in time. And although industry challenges may differ, solutions have proven to be similar. This holds true to the Vistage mission. Industry challenges such as human resources, operations, marketing and business development are just a few high level topics that speakers discuss as is a way to provide new perspectives for the CEOs.
Celebrating with DiversyFund & Ozzie Gontang
Vistage 29’s upcoming meeting will be hosted on September 8th 2015 by Craig Cecilio, Founder/CEO of DiversyFund. It will be at DiversyFund’s headquarters in downtown San Diego, California. Although most meetings include a guest speaker, this month’s meeting will cover two very important topics. These topics include, discussing live issues that each CEO is enduring and celebrating Ozzie Gontang. As Vistage 29’s Chair, he celebrated for being an extraordinary mentor, friend, and leader.
A little background on Ozzie Gontang and Vistage. Vistage is a worldwide organization that has been bringing CEOs into “private peer advisory groups guided by expert executive coaches, known as Vistage Chairs,” since 1957. Ozzie brings over 26 years tenure at Vistage. Additionally, he’s received the Don Cope Memorial Award for being one of the most enthusiastic supporters of the Vistage mission.
The team at DiversyFund is exciting to be hosting the event. Even more so, to honor Ozzie’s mentorship and long term dedication to Vistage and the CEO’s on Vistage 29, including Craig Cecilio.
