When the buck stops with you, where do you go for advice? Other CEOs.

The Brian TrustTM is pleased to announce the addition of a new CEO Peer Advisory Group in North Atlanta. The Brain Trust hosts 3 groups currently meeting in the Cobb Galleria area and has recently expanded to include a group in the Duluth area. These groups allow Chief Executive Officers an opportunity to develop their skills as well as utilize their peers as a sounding board for ideas, and gather feedback on challenges within their organizations.

“Now more than ever, Chief Executive Officers are looking to escape the isolation at the top by finding safe, confidential spaces to share their challenges and also assist others with solutions,” says Tom Cramer, Founder and Chairman of The Brain Trust. “Smart CEOs realize the value of honest, real-life, hard-won information. It’s extremely beneficial to learn from the experiences only trusted peers can offer.”

“The [Brain Trust] ROI has been remarkable. Most recently, one of the speakers at a meeting presented a workshop the content of which is enabling my company to save over $400,000 in payroll/benefits this year … and that’s over $4 million dollars in incremental bottom line over the next 10 years.”

The new North Atlanta Brain Trust group will be led by Bryan Gutting who brings a strong background in sales and leadership training as well as CEO experience in the energy and digital communications sectors. In addition to owning and operating six companies, Bryan has been a contributing author to an ISO 9000 quality standard and a Thomas Reuters series.

In an age where technology can lead to a false sense of connectedness, I’m excited by how many executives are realizing the benefits of face to face communication and the building of peer relationships.“
