Over 20 years of developing the world’s top CEO’s

Chief executives realize one of the best ways to strengthen their own performance and ensure succession planning is to sit down with some of the best business minds in the world to learn more about their leadership practices and experiences in an era of turbulence and transformation. This can be vital for not only themselves but also their potential successors, as both investors and directors are insisting great successors be developed now.

The CEO Academy, now in its 23rd year, has attracted some of the most successful chief executives and board leaders in the country. It is one of the most comprehensive “learning” and “refresher” programs of its kind, attracting current chief executives, former CEOs, potential successors, company directors, Wharton faculty, and industry leaders. More than 600 CEOs have attended the program.

We focus on strategy, innovation, growth, finance, talent, compensation, succession, governance, and other issues of pressing concern to chief executives, potential successors, and board leaders.

Admission to the CEO Academy is limited to ensure intimacy, collaboration, and networking. If you are interested in attending, you are invited to apply now or contact Dr. Vernon Williams at info@ceo-academy.com for a private consultation. The cost of the program is $20,000 for the CEO or Board Director. You are invited to bring up to three of your top executives and/or board members for an additional $10,000 per person.

Nobody knows like other CEOs, so learn from the best and take a seat at the CEO Academy. We hope to see you this fall.
