The Lead Assembly

A PRIVATE FORUM FOR FOUNDERS & CEOs

THE EXPERIENCE

The Lead CEO Assembly is a highly personalized and curated, peer-to-peer learning and idea-exchange for CEOs & founders, of high-growth DTC brands. The Assembly addresses the most pressing questions faced by leadership through intimate, focused and moderated discussions with peers. Built with your priorities in mind, and designed to maximize return-on-time, this half-day event takes a considered approach to the needs of the senior executive audience, from topics to location — to the use of your time.

WHY ATTEND

Only decision-makers. By invitation only for founders and CEOs. Learn from leaders of companies at a similar stage during this closed-door, exclusive gathering.

Curated peer-to-peer discussions. Converse on specific challenges, learnings, and opportunities with a hand-selected group of like-minded leaders — large enough for a range of perspectives, small enough to dive deep.

The topics that matter most to you. Address the most pressing priorities for your business today with a special focus on growth, profitability, customer acquisition, operations, financing, and leadership.

Build relationships & strengthen your network. The format is strictly conversational, fostering personal and authentic connections that result in valuable short-term and long-term opportunities.

THE LOCATION

5 Star Experience. Join us at The Bowery Hotel for The Lead CEO Assembly. Luxurious, hip, and quirky, like New York itself, The Bowery Hotel is the standard of service, style, and sophistication in Downtown New York.

THE DISCUSSIONS

The Lead CEO Assembly is thoughtfully designed to create meaningful exchanges between leaders on the issues you care most about: growth, profitability, customer acquisition, operations, M&A, financing, and leadership. In the span of an afternoon, you’ll have a casual discussion over lunch, participate in two focused and moderated roundtable discussions, and hear from industry experts and entrepreneurs who came before you.
