• CEO Collaboration Day

    The CEO Collaboration Day connects Entrepreneurs and Digital Executives in a peer to peer exchange around today's most relevant topics

  • Every great leader understands that remarkable accomplishments require collaboration with other great leaders.


    The CEO Collaboration Day is an Executive Roundtable event where 30 selected entrepreneurs and corporate executives exchange with their peers and gain key insights & connections for breaking through to the next level.


    Our entrepreneur members are CEOs of high-growth companies (50-500 employees) in Switzerland at the forefront of emerging technologies, digitalization and market disruption.


    Our executive members are Digital Executives (CIOs, CTOs, CDOs, etc.) of multinational corporations in Switzerland in the digital transition.


    The CEO Collaboration Day features six key themes.

  • Roundtable Themes

    Every theme is organized into a roundtable with 6-10 people, where an open thought exchange of what worked and what did not work happens with your peers

    Applied Digitization​

    Let's dig deeper than the buzzword "digital transformation".

    Together with your peers, you're going to exchange around practical cases of digitization that have worked and that have failed to more effectively pursue this never-ending challenge.

    Applied Emerging Tech​

    We all love tools and technology. But how do you apply things like AI, Blockchain, VR, AR, Holacracy and other emerging tech and models to actual business cases?

    Together with your peers, you will explore practical use cases of applied emerging technology.

    Digital Leadership​

    How do you lead millennials? How to lead upwards? When to lead and when to manage? Long term roadmaps or OKRs?

    All of this and more you can explore with your peers based on practical cases.

    Culture​ Change

    Can a culture really be changed? Can it be designed on purpose? Or do we have to leave it up to chance?

    Discuss practical use cases of culture changes with your peers to explore new solutions to impossible challenges.

    Talent Attraction​

    Hiring skills is easy. Hiring attitude and digital mindsets is the ultimate challenge.

    Explore with your peers what works and what does not, in attracting today's and tomorrow's digital talents.


    How do you build global virtual organizations, scale across continents and reach customers in new emerging markets.

    Explore together with your peers what's working and what not.
